New Boat – Not Yet!

Well it appears that my new boat will not be ready for pickup this week. Very disappointing. Funny how things change from discussions prior to purchasing to after placing the deposit! Been a few things along the way with this purchase that have disappointed my about the service from where I’m purchasing the boat. Even my wife has said that if there was another dealer closer we would have passed this one up. But anyway, I’m sure it will be good when it’s all over.

I have decided not to replace my sounder with another Furuno! I am a little uncomfortable with the decision as my previous 620 was so good. But I have chosen to give the Humminbird 997 with Side Imaging a go. From what I have seen of the SI, it’s pretty spectacular.

If your board and what to have a look at what I am getting, here is the boat and here is the sounder.
