I can try and get some pictures and plans for the 5 x 5 we put up this weekend. It was my nephews friends who built it for him.

Now here is the problem....I don't have the plans..just helped put it together and I don't know how to put you in contact with the planners, etc. I could give you their email, but I don't know if I would get my fingers slapped by the forum.

I built one last year out of pallet racking. The uprights are 16' tall and 42"wide, the cross beams are 8' long. So the stand is 8' x 42", then I just put some plywood on for a floor, roof and to enclose around me. It is pretty slick.

Fleet farm advertised a metal base frame to which a person could attach 4x4's for height and was set up for a 2x4 in each corner then attach you plywood and tadaah instant box stand. 199.00 for the steel frame. Just an idea, looked pretty simple to assemble.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
