My husband pretended to be taking me to lunch today and swung into the Tops & Towers parking lot real quick and said

"Hey, that looks just like your boat".

Sure enough there it sat with 5 new SS rodholders on each side. Plus I got a "bonus" SS koozie holder on the hand rail (thanks to Bobby Byrd, Jeff & Pat).

We had been using the little white "suction cup" PVC rod holders that kept falling off. They were suppose to be temporary but we had them for 2 years.

Can't wait to go try them out; however, hubby is still modifying the low water pickup and has the lower unit off the boat. Guess, I'll just have to wait.

Hey girl, that is sweet! Thoughtful guy you got there.

Hope he's provided you some rods and reels that are worthy of being in those fine holders. ;) LOL (If not, Send him shopping again!)

Congrats, and happy birthday again.

Thanks Bay Gal. Yes, I have what I think to be rods and reels worthy. I have a 50mg on a Laguna Wader and a Shimano Digital TE 100DC on a BillyStix. Hubby takes pretty good care of me.

The low water pickup is from Bob's Machine in Florida (I think it's called a Big Foot). He put it on himself last year and didn't like the way it looked so he took it off and is putting it back on a different (better) way. My theory is "if it ain't broke don't fix it" but that's not his. Will have to be patient until he gets it finished.

Very nice. T&T did all my metal work, and after 6 years it still looks and performs great.

boat

Is that a TransCat? I was following one in Friendswood Wednesday afternoon that was missing the lower unit from an E-TEC 225 I believe. Nice boat if that's the one.

Newbie, yes that must have been us your were following. Just got the boat back from Top & Towers and were taking it back to storage. As I mentioned, he is working on the low water pickup and that is why it was missing it's lower unit.

Can't wait to get to go out again. Really can't wait until I can run the thing by myself. Still a little much for me to handle without freaking out.
