Time for a Fighting Chair!

First trip out on the new boat. Everything worked great!
I did need to re-mount the straps for my dual batteries. The dealer had the second one too close to the door. The pocket on the inside of the Console Door would bump against the box and the door would open on a good wave. So both baatteries had to move about 1 inch to Starboard. All things considered, that isn't that big of a deal for a full weekend shake down.
A little cruising, beach, and fishing made for a great weekend.
I can't resist and have to brag about the first fish that I caught on my Montauk 170. He was a fighter! Just as all of my drag was run out, he finally gave in. Should have installed the fighting chair! (Read as BS!)
I was crying from laughing so hard. So much for things bigger in Texas. Now that I think of it, he probably swam over from the Oklahoma side of the lake! That fish had no idea how much I spent to catch him.
