Default The New Boat has Arrived !

The 1996 Fountain 35 Lightning I bought from David Wade Marine in Louisiana has arrived. Thank You David and Mike (42Playboy) for delivering as promised. Also a big thanks to Mark at Precision Marine for taking a look at it for me. He did this at a moments notice without charge.

Hey Mike: Can you confirm that the Coast Guard paper work has been squared away?

It was nerve racking buying a boat 2200 miles from home (even though it was Surveyed) and I am now finally taking some deep breaths. Cleaned it up today and will be going to Catalina Island tomorrow morning to try her out.

Here are a few pics:

Yep 42 hours on the motors. Hoping to get by tomorrow with the name/ hailing port plus the old coast guard docs until the new ones arrive...

Thanks for the good word guys. The boat has an older Garmin (153 Sounder) GPS / Map system for which software is apparently obsolete. So instead of screwing with it, I'm trying to download the Westcoast map into my Map60 handheld until I can get a proper replacement. What a pain in the azz. The software has a relase code that doesn't work the way the instructions detail. It looks like I may be using a compass tomorrow....

Hey Mike,

The Boat's running good. I made a trip to Catalina for breakfast a few weeks ago and was back (to my house) before 1:00 PM.

Probably going to Catalina again in the next couple of weeks. Beyond that, it's the Desert Storm poker run in Havasu. Anyone from out your way going?

The final Coast Guard Docs came so don't sweat it - I am all squared away.

Regards,

Rick
