Re: Basscat, triton or nitro?

If you decide Basscat through Boatmaster's, I think they are offering a total of 7 years on the Mercury motor also. I'm not sure of the details, but it would be worth looking into. Good luck on you new boat, whatever you end up getting! :D

Re: Seat belts

Was that a study that was conducted on the percentages of being thrown out or having it flip? Just really curious as I had two of my good friends at Lake Sam Rayburn flip a bass boat and one of them was trapped underneath and almost died! Just sayin!

From what I've read is that you have to have an Arizona License to fish any and all lakes in the state. You can only shorefish on Calif side with a Ca license.
