    Default Sea Ark Pedator new bottom

    Here's a couple pictures of the new bottom. Looks good should be nice a strong. The new bottom is 5056 3/16.

    I had to have one replaced as well. There were many, many stories behind it.

    Yea, strangest thing. You'd expect by paying nearly 30 grand for a boat (at the time) it would be able to withstand some high speed dry docking and unexpected shale impacts.

    Hoose 35, they are great boats, but some of us take them to extremes and run too shallow. The bottoms are thin, but with what I subjected my Predator to, any boat would have taken a beating. I never sprung a leak, but after 3 seasons, the boat wasn't running right because of the new shape to the bottom. Insurance paid for the new bottom. I sold it, bought a new one and I'm a bit more careful now. Somehow the new boat ended up with a little character on the bottom as well, but it's nothing bad... yet.

    There but for the grace of God go I .

    Better than replacing the windshield because you flipped it over.

    See you in the Spring, maybe not to so far up 20 mile this time. Thanks for the lift though.
