    Nice job organizing and outfitting your Scadden.
    I hope you only weigh 100 pounds though...........:eek: Looks like alot of gear weight. What is the weight rating on those rafts?
    Maybe needs a beer cooler in front to balance it out.

    Well the battery is probably close to 60 lbs, motor around 25 lbs, sonar maybe a pound, maybe a pound or two with rods and lines...boat rated at 800 lbs I think....I am good.
    Boat sits pretty level. With battery and motor, a little up in the front, but nice on waves.

    The only thing wrong with that video was that your reel is installed backwards. Cool mods Blue, have you outdone Mojo?

    I cannot reel right handed! Spazz totally. He has been using the Renegade. Not sure why no the XX other than the Renegade is a little shorter and lighter....plus I have it rigged with the glue ons (thanks to you). I am wondering if we will use the X5's again!

    I think you need to get another one and make it a two story affair ;) As usual you have some great solutions and boat jazz. Love it.

    I bought some sweet little 3" ones at a Marine place here, but I ordered the same ones that are on the toon from Dave. Took a few weeks asa they were totally out, but he offered to send me any of the other colors at a discount. I wanted blue, what can I say.
