Hello From Kansas

#1 Post by cbears » Wed Mar 21, 2018 2:42 pm

Noob to the site but have been looking around for a few days. We had a little 16' Sun Dancer when the kids were small in the late 90's. Then a couple years ago my grandson (4 at the time) took an interest in the water so bought a little Bayliner Element. I was never happy with it because of the limited number of things I could do with it so we sold it a couple of weeks ago and ordered a new Sun Tracker Bass Buggy 18DLX in black with a 75hp Merc. I'm told we should take delivery within a couple of weeks and I'm really looking forward to it. Can't wait to do some fishing and relaxing with grandma and grandson.

It actually was the first one I wanted back in the 90's. It's the first one I looked at back then but couldn't afford one so went the less expensive route. I decided I wasn't getting any younger so what the heck.
