Where is a good spot to bring our 3 year old to catch fish? Nothing technical, just for the fun of watching his face light up.

We have a pontoon boat. We pressure wash it after every use and wipe down the seats with a general cleaner. 3x's a year we really detail it. We use vinegar and water solution in the carpet (then PW), use a starbrite product on the vinyl and hand brush the pontoons. We also use sharkhide on the pontoons at the end of the season.

We have a shop in Lafayette, LA. We specialize in Aluminum welding and propeller work. We have had several Xpress rigs come in through the years. Sometimes all they need is the right set up. Other times they have needed some serious fabrication work. Some worked out fine, but others were a lost cause. They aren't all bad though.
