Okay, I am a completely new owner of a boat. Never had a boat before but I go fishing with my friends about once a year. Unfortunately, he handles everything on the boat. I just got a house on a canal and got a great deal on a new used 2016 231 w/200 Yamaha for $35,500. I know nothing about boating so I am reading and figuring everything out. I am having a boat lift installed in the spring and will put the boat in the water then. Thus, tell me what I need to know. Thanks in advance.
