What a week we have had it's been crazy since last Friday when we sold the old boat. We headed up to Holland Michigan Saturday morning to purchase the new boat after a successful sea trial we headed home with the new boat in tow. We now needed to have it rigged and ready to fish by Sunday morning if we wanted to make the Buffalo Bill Tournament out of Michigan City, IN. We stayed up working on the boat until 1am to get it ready then we got a couple hours of sleep and woke up around 3:30am to head to the launch to fish the tournament. We were basically doing a shakedown during a tournament and it worked well for us as we were able to catch our 10 fish we needed to meet our tournament limit and put us in 7th place. We fished deep off shore for our coho and caught them anywhere from the surface to 80ft down with our hot rod being a Michigan Stinger UV mixed veggie down 75ft on rigger. Our hot baits were Michigan Stinger spoons and assorted body baits. Now as far as the new boat goes it's a 23ft Polar with twin 115 4stroke outboards and is exactly what we have been wanting! We have been working on it non stop since Monday and still not completely finished, but I was finally able to find a few minutes to give you guys a report and update. We plan on fishing the Hoosier Coho Club Classic next weekend in Michigan City, IN which will be our first Tournament Trail stop of the season and we can't wait!

bullelkklr: How did the bow mounting of the exhaust port for the Espar heater work out for you? I am working on a similar installation of a D2 heater and am trying to decide whether to take the exhaust out the hull starboard side or put it where you did.

bullelkklr: Do you have any problems with melting coolers or being too hot to the touch on the gunnel from the exhaust? Is there any problems with exhaust fumes on the back deck from swirling exhaust when on anchor?
