"Hi everyone!"
I retired at 55 and currently living in Oklahoma. And I too recently bought a used boat, motor, & trailer to occupy my time fishing (my first boat).
It was so sun-baked and abused looking but it has a strong running 85 Evinrude that just wont quit. That was last December.
It is now September and I'm finished with the restoration and I've been on the water for a couple of months now learning the little do's and don'ts.
What am I doing on this forum? Well, I decided that after all the fun I am having with my watercraft, that I must be a boat guy!
They say... "You only get out of it what you put into it!" :)
That must be true. Because I got more into this "89 Laser Bass Boat than I'll ever get out of it. I guess I'll just have to get to using it every week.
(Did I mention that I live 15 minutes from the water?) Big Smile!
Thanks for reading!

Allow me to introduce my two Fishing and Boating Buddies. My grandsons Justin & Jace. They love to take the boat out when they visit me from California, every 2 - 3 months.
I live 15 minutes from Kerr Lake here in Oklahoma. Kerr Lake has 250 miles of shoreline and 43,800 surface acres. The Lake is on the Arkansas River Navigation System and
is another Oklahoma striper fishing hot spot. Channel Catfish, Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Spotted Bass, Striped Bass (Striper), Sunfish, Walleye, White Bass are what you can
expect to catch here. Never a dull moment. (Big Smile) Thanks for reading guys.
