Another new guy
« on: August 05, 2011, 05:26:36 PM »
Hello all, My name is Nick. I'm a river rat on the St. Croix anywhere from Stillwater, MN to Hudson, WI. Sometimes I go a bit more south, but would need to have a trip planned to do that, most of the time I'm doin the beach bum thing on the islands in Hudson.

My boat is a 1984 CVX-17. From what I can tell, there aren't too many 17' Carlsons floating around out there, which is kinda cool.

Plans for the boat are to get a marine radio, and beef up the audio a bit. Still the original twin knob tape deck with EQ above it. Speakers look to be for a car, and sound like they have been wet a few times. Also, the trim pump has a leaky internal valve, and slowly lets the motor trim down when sitting or under power. Its not bad, just bugs me because I want a rock solid trim.

I'm not going to be on the river again until at least next year, most likely next fall. I'm finishing up my active duty contract in colorado. Left the boat at home so my dad can use it while I'm here. So if you see my boat floating around, its my dad who will be in it.

Glad to be here, and look forward to a meet next fall maybe!

Oh and this goofy looking bastard is me:

If you see me stop and say hello, but my guess is I'll find your glastron before you see me surfing the beaches.

Greetings Nick!

Welcome to the site.  I read much more than I post.

Nice looking boat you have there!  That tow vehicle does not look like it is ready for the interstate though.

Nice CV16! We live in Hudson and get out on the St. Croix quite a bit. I'll keep an eye out for you or your dad and welcome to the group.

Thanks for all the welcomes! I hope to get one more croix run in before the season is up. Looking at maybe late sept. I can keep you guys up to date as I'll find out more over the next few weeks. It will, however, be a weekday run, but I'll make it an all day thing for me, (maybe even get more than one day out) so I'd be happy to meet up later on after people start getting off work.
