    Amberjack w/ Fishing Package. Full Camper Pkg. 3 ax. Trler. Standard Horizon 2200 VHF w/AIS No Mid
    Single 350 MAG MPI B3
    Hello from Norfolk VA. New to the forum,
    new to Sea-Ray's,
    hell, I'm new to boating !
    Advise, suggestions, comments and constructive criticism welcome !!
    The Vessel- 2006 Sea-Ray Amberjack 270. Single 350 MAG MPI w/ B3 drive. 325 hours. Fishing package.
    Back story- A vacation in Ocacroke NC sparked my childhood hobby of fishing. Upon returning to Norfolk, I started WADING to fish.
    I soon realized a KAYAK would better suite my desires. A Hobie pedal version served me well, but cramped my legs after a 10-12hr day on the water.
    A trip to the local bait shop resulted in a purchase of a 10' Sears Game-fisher JON-BOAT. It now serves as the dingy for my new to me baby:
    I call her.. "Mountains to Sea"

    Currently under wraps, anxiously awaiting mid-March launch.
    Thanks in advance for any help
    RidgeRunner

    UPDATE- We are in the water!
    A few pic's to add to the bio.
    She's been cleaned:

    Welcome. Nice fishing platform. An old dockmate had the 290 AJ... great boat. The 350Mag is a good motor too, easy to maintain and pretty bullet proof. Keep up on the B3 maintenance and you'll have a dependable boat for years to come.

    Sorry to hear about your dog. For most people a pet is part of the family and it's never easy to feel loss.

    On the bright side you have an excellent fishing machine and you get to move forward with a great hobby/lifestyle.

    Lots of amazing people in this group, it's good to have this wealth of information and resources.

    Got it- thanks. After ordering 200 bucks worth of LED's from the LED post I was following today, wondering does a donation to MarineBeam.com count....??:smt043

    Welcome! You bought a great Bay boat, take care of her and she will take care of you!

    As as for the LED's the good ones do cost a bit more, I've changed all mine now and I don't want to know what I spent.

    Mike, Full House is running good and strong. My wife and I thank you many times over!
