How’s the bracket?

Seems good. Really need a kicker. The big two stroke is good for hammering around 45 knots not so good for hours of idle.

I never posted any of my boats in the past as I have been through so many over the years trying to find one that I like and fits my fishing needs. But my latest one has been great and I plan on keeping it for a little while unless I find something I like better lol. It’s a 2004 Bayliner 1802 with a Mercury 115 saltwater series 4 strike. Rides great and plenty of room to fish out of and sips the gas....

Great boat Meangreen1. I bought one two years ago and love it. The only thing is the live well. There is no direct input. I like the freeboard depth, motor well enclosure and removable jump seats. I plan that this my last boat. :)
