here's my old boat. I will still be using it, like for my pond and for other ponds in my area where big boats either dont have access or arent allowed.
This boat is a 14' Monarch. The trolling motor is a Bill Dance Edition 32lb Motorguide with a Motorguide Gator mount off of a dead 82lb thrust motor i have. I kept breaking the other mounts. That gatormount though... shes tough and I can bounce off as many stumps as I want lol
The 1973 Johnson 9.5 is not on it because it makes it easier for me to load into my pond by myself. I got to do a lot of pushing and pulling to get it in the pond because my truck cant back all the way down without getting stuck lol
I put the front deck on it and then cut a door in it. you can probably see the outline of it around teh trolling motor pedal. My battery, first aid kit, wiring, spare bagged ponchos and some tools are under the deck in that compartment. Its a good little boat and has always treated me well. Like I said im keeping it for the small ponds and shallow rivers.
By the way, can you imagine me in Santee Cooper in this thing? I tried it. Almost died! NEVER AGAIN! LOL!
