I am picking up a new 13 sport w/40HP mercury and trailer in about two months. Will be used primarily on a fresh water lake, but occasionally in salt water. Besides reading the manuals, etc. are there any "trade secrets" about the boat/motor I need to know?

Get the comfort package. The seat cushions provide excellent lower back support.

Have the dealer supply a sealed absorbed glass mat (AGM) battery with the boat. AGM is NOT gel cell. AGM has many advantages over conventional flooded cell batteries.

Have the dealer move the motor up until its large antiventilation plate is level with the keel, if it isn't from the factory.

Keep a kidney belt onboard.

Great fishing boat. I have had one since 2000 and like it better every time I head out. Good luck with yours! Coastal Whaler
