My Wife Bought A Boat! Full Tour of CC's New (Used) Boat – Complete DIY Restoration

May 29, 2020 62 No Comments

Description


Our wives love to fish! CC already had an older Ranger bass boat but she needed a larger platform. She upgraded to a used Champion 198 this Winter and has been working on DIY projects to dial it in all Spring. When she got the boat it was stripped, leaving room to rig it any way her heart desired. Come along as she gives a full tour, showing every detail of how she chose to rig this boat. From the Ultrex 112 trolling motor to brand new electronics and accessories throughout, she did it right!

Buying a bass boat can be a very stressful time. For the angler buying a new boat, you’re faced with the anxiety of selecting from a handful of electronics options, color schemes, engine sizes, etc. For the angler purchasing a used boat, you’re faced with fears of reliability and hidden damage. For both groups, it can be an incredible experience if you have a little confidence about what you’re looking for. If you’re considering a used boat purchase, this video will tell you everything you need to look for before committing to buy: https://youtu.be/cZtbnWpl4uI

After making a purchase the next step is to dial the boat in so you feel like its your own. This may involve big purchases like a new motor, shallow water anchors, or seats. It could also just be as simple as a few stickers that make it feel personal. When CC purchased her boat it was stripped. There was no trolling motor, electronics, batteries, charger, etc… She had a blank slate to work with and over the course of a few months we were able to buy and install all the parts and pieces to make it her own. 

Below are a list of the parts and equipment that were upgraded. We’ll follow the course of the video so we’ll begin in the stern and work our way to the bow.
