Scrounged together a couple pics from the first few times out on my 175!

Not great pics but the first one has made a nice wallpaper for a while!

Next time I'll actually get some pics while on the water :)

In case you were wondering about the wetsuit, water temp was 40 degrees when we first tested out the tube haha.

Last picture is from this weekend on fort caroll (awful quality haha)

unfortunately I have to agree with Marty about the pics..... However, I still find the 175 one of the best small family boats. The new Elements may take that over but I didn't have found a chance to test one for some time.
At a water temperature of 40 I wouldn't even get close to any water. If it's less than 70 it's winter = no boating......

Congrats on the boat.

Water temp 40 deg ???? Ice skates would have been more appropriate. :whistle:

Definitely a great all around boat, As for the water temp, I caught some of that "first time motorcycle owner syndrome" First year I had a bike I didn't bother to wait until spring to ride either.

Needless to say, one trip out with that kind of temp was enough for me.
