    I'm a firm believer in the "fleet". Its a fairly simple concept really...

    Made my decision today and put a deposit down on a 2002 17-1/2' Smokercraft Stealth.
    115 hp 4 stroke Yamaha and a 8hp 4-stroke Yam kicker. Came with two manual Scotty downriggers and a eagle fish finder.
    Nice clean bow area and a Min Kota electric.
    I went a little over my 5K but the wife gave me the blessing.
    I'm pretty happy.:beer2:

    Congrats! You will have a lot of fun with that setup.

    Looking on craigslist today and saw this 13 foot whaler for sale and thought of this post....

    Photo cracked me up... looks like a really nice boat.... :rofl:

    Thanks.
    I was going to link to the Craigslist ad with the pic but the guy took it off I guess after I committted.

    Just pulled the new boat home in some pretty crappy rush hour traffic last night.
    Got home after dark. Got the boat in the garage. The wife can still get her car in so life is good.
    Thanks to everyone for their insights. Not great photo's but there she is.
    Cheers :beer2:

    Thanks. I'm actually kinda burned out on looking.
