New Boat

Picked up a 15 footer.

What are some items that must be in YOUR boat? Besides the legal stuff...

Also what's a good DIY push pole?

I made a push pole out of 1.5" schedule 40 PVC over the summer with a 3 way end and a T on he other. Worked well enough for fishing. Definitely not as rigid but strong enough to push my 14' around.

Also, a hand-held GPS device will help a lot when navigating at night….have seen a lot of people get lost thinking a short boat ride would be nothing….you'd be amazed at how easy it is to get turned around in the dark. :thumbsup:

Now that I've got them I don't think I could go without my spud poles. They double well as push poles for me

A round stair rail works good for a push pole. You can bolt on a metal gator foot. It is flexible and floats.

My buddy milled a piece of 14' mahogany decking into a nice push pole...
