I haven鈥檛 see the official thread started. If it has been I will delete.

Anyway. Plan on doing a shakedown on Friday. Although it may be a little chilly.

East wind is going to ramp up with a wind chill advisory issued for tomorrow. Lows in the teens for Friday.
Might want to rethink that. Be safe!

Picking up my brand new 8H Honda kicker Wednesday. Hope to have it mounted and ready to go by next week end. Will be anxious to give it a whirl on the Arima. Wish the weather would warm up!!!!

Nice! Be sure and break it in right and change that oil after about 20 hours. These are great motors.
I鈥檝e got two of those I bought new at Sportcraft. One 2016 short shaft manual start, and a 2021 long shaft electric start for my big boat. Love em both鈥.. I鈥檓 curious what model you got and what the brand new ones are going for now days. Kirk
Would PM if I could figure it out.
Risk of hi-jack here but 8 HP electric start and power tilt long shaft. Also Sportcraft. Brand new at $3268.Not crazy about the weight at 128Lbs but installed a fixed bracket on the Arima that can handle it. Not the best price but closer than the competition and had one in stock.

I heard Drano was "white hot" yesterday!
Ya. Buddy's been doing well up there. Not sure that counts as a Columbia River fishery though.
Nice batch of limits!
