Friday night after work UPS delivered my new 3 bank battery charger. Got it installed. Two banks for the two trolling motor batteries, and one for the starting and fish finder battery.

Friday the 16th I picked up my new 2017 Tracker Pro Guide 175 WT. It's 17 feet long and 97" wide. I upgrade the motor to a 115 Merc. I also had Bass Pro upgrade the trolling motor and fish finder. The boat now has a 24v 80lb Minn Kota Terrova with 60" shaft and a Humminbird Helix 12 with down and side imaging. Within 14 hours of picking up the boat Diane caught the first fish out of it, I followed with the second shortly there after :)
