This is my first truck and my first Ford. All my previous vehicles have been GM except my first which was MG. The Ford designers and factory did a great job with this vehicle and I find it hard to believe that I went this far through life without a truck.
I really like my boat. PowerPole is really useful but would work better if there were two.

I got the Ecoboost (turbo V6) on the truck and a 225 HPDI VMAX on the boat. The boat was used in one of the Federation tournaments so I got a really good deal on it. I had a Hummingbird 998 on my old boat that I moved over to this one so it is totally tricked out wrto electronics. The truth is that it is a much better rig than I am a fisherman and I have a lot of learning to do. One my bucket goals is to fish all the major reservoirs in the SE and I figure this set-up should allow me to do just that.
My blessing and my curse is that my wife likes to fish as much as I do (she told me to buy the boat). The blessing is that we have a lot of fun fishing together and I never get heat for going fishing as long as I take her. The curse is that she has first dibs and I don't often get to go with any of my buds. She is not very technical but her focus is incredible and if there is a fish there - she not stop til she catches it. I've gone night fishing with her - 3AM pouring rain and she is out hauling them in.

Thanks. This is an example of what I am talking about. She caught it in October, right after a front went through - bluebird skies. I was cleaning out the boat and charging the batteries from the previous night fishing trip. She was bored so I gave her the only rod that wasn't needing attention - a big flippin' stick with a jig and craw - and told her to walk the docks and sea wall slowly jigging it up and down. 7.5 lbs - family record for largemouths.
On the boat - note the "3's" in the registration numbers. The hardware store was out of "3's" so I got "E's" and put them on backwards. DNR was out there when I was putting them on and got a big kick out it. I've since switched. Maybe I should include that in the "Tips" forum.

Talking about numbers...these are the bomb
