Agreed, I've owned probably 8 boats and enjoyed all of them. I have moved away from the more complex boats in an attempt to keep it simple.
The water pump came in on Wednesday and I got it installed. Old impeller was Fubar. Spent the 4th with the family in the mountains. Took the Crestliner out for a shakedown run today. Spent a few hours on the water confirming that everything is ready to go. Still have a couple of small items, but nothing worth mentioning. With just me and my gear I saw a top speed of 24 mph on my GPS. She comes up on plane easy and I had no problem cruising on plane at 15 mph or so. Trolling motor is solid and the livewell is sweet. I may try the other prop to see what difference it makes.
I did not like where I mounted the seat so I'll be moving it back to a pedestal inside the boat. Other than that life was good and it's basically ready for some fishin'!
