    Congrats on the purchase. Time on the boat is well spent. Every time I go to the dock it feels like a vacation. Yes, it's expensive, but I love it. It's one of only a few things I will get up early for on the weekends. Caught some stripers and fluke this past weekend and look forward to more this holiday weekend. Enjoy and share more pics!

    That's a good looking boat, congrats on the purchase and have fun throwing money into a hole in the water ... I mean spending time on the water.

    With the hard cap on your Avalanche there'd be no issue stashing gas cans in the truck for refils while out for a day of lake fun. Crownlines are nice boats, by the way. (Dad had one for a while.)
    The nice thing about Dockmate fuel cells is their on wheels and have a 3' service hose with a fuel nozzle like a regular fuel pump, the two I have also have built in air pumps so you can pressurize them to about 20psi and you dont have to worry about being higher than the boat and gravity feeding the fuel.

    Boat looks good. Have it serviced before heading out or as soon as you can. No telling what may need some attention and you DO NOT want to get stuck on the water. It's not fun waiting for assistance or paddling back to shore, trust me.

    Atleast that is what my friends say, cause I know nothing about boats lol. I do know it makes a summer day a lot better being out on the water. But seriously congrats, I am guessing that you have a lake near you to spend those weekends?
    That's true. A boat is a hole in the water that you thrown money into.
