Around 5 years ago I remember getting my boat one week out from the very first Elite event, trying to wrap it rig everything and break the engine in during practice. It was not a very ideal situation and stressful times, id fish the season sell the boat for a loss and then do it all over again. Trying to compete like that was almost impossible but I fought through it and did the best I could. Those struggles help you learn and work harder to make it better.
Fast forward to today and my boat is totally dialed in and ready to wrap by the end of November. This is one insane set up, with the best electronics available it maybe my best yet. I love that there is no break in period on the @evinrudebrp as well so once you hit the water your ready to fish.
