First ono for 2021! Boat was down with corroded fuel tank so one thing led to another - replaced fuel tank, replaced rotten floor panel, install seat riser. Feels good to be waterborne again.
Ono estimated weight about 35 lbs. Fish hits at 1:15 in the afternoon, we were ready to call it quits.

Thanks Pat,
Yes on the seat riser, I also made a step between the console and riser so now even my wife can drive looking over the windshield. This boat made for us short Okinawans, LOL. Hope to get out soon and snag more of the razor gang...

Aloha,
Jimmy

Jimmy, you're out and about! Haven't seen you for a while, good going on the ono! Is the ono on some sort of mobile fish sink/carrier?

Hi Randy,
Great to hear from you, long time since we caught anything so this was a treat. The ono is on a worx aerocart that I bought at Home Depot. Was marked down so I grabbed it. Pretty cool, huh? LOL...Hopefully can put some shibis in there too! Hope to see you out at the boat harbor one day, good luck fishing!

Pat, this is the view from the helm now. I made a enclosure for the electronics so can't see anything through it. Now even sitting down I can see over the box. Very comfortable now!

Nice one Jimmy! Hoping to get one of those myself. Where’d you get that top shade from on your center console?
Thank you ryanh12, I got it from T-Topless/folding t-tops. I got this one since it bolts to the rails on the center console, did not want to hurt my feet kicking 2" pipes on the deck. (Boat is narrow). I think I spent about $1300 for the top.
