Hey I've seen pictures of this boat somewhere else (oh yea the kappa facebook page
) I like it!!
Something I didn't catch when I started bidding on the boat on e bay was who had owned it.
Seen the bass professor on the side of it on the e bay page and I have my own style of doing things but thought that was about half cocked to adv. your that good of a fishing person and that name was tied to Doug Hannon out of Fla. Had his own show and still holds records in the fishing world.
LIttle story behind the boat. Doug Hannon passed last year... Way to soon in life to but before he got sick he sold this boat. Someone stole it after being sold and stripped everything off of it. Guy in TN ended up with it like you see in that photo that sells auction boats and I bought it from him.
Not till I got it home and you know how you can see where someone has taken the stickers or letter off and its a little brighter under it? IT was his boat. Make some phone calls, and e mails and got several folks to run the vin on the boat but where the www. adv was on the front that was taken off I already knew it was his. Triton had given this boat to him.
Not important in the car world but if your a bass fishing person its kinda like owning Elvis's car.. LOL
I took the names off the side of the boat and the compounding I did for two full days.
got the difference out and the new shine back.
Having fun fixing it up and went fishing on it yesterday for the first time. Everything checked out perfect so have a few more toys headed this way (UPS) and should be finished with them in less than two weeks.
Just a fun summer toy..
Triton sent me some photos of Doug on the boat. Thats him fishing..
