Well, I finally bit the bullet and bought me a new "to me" boat. It's a custom 30' Jetcraft with twin inboards. Going to dip it in the water over in Big Lake to shake it out. I took it up the China river for a run before I bought it and was impressed it'd run in 1 1/2 foot of water on step. Next I'll need to find a few good halibut holes out and about.
