Welcome from me as well, we are always glad to have people on board that love the sport as we do.
I too would love to share some of my experience with you and I offered you an invitation that followed your other post. I'll be glad to meet you on the Tn. side if that would work better for you. I'm retired and try to stay in a creek as much as I can..
Hats off to Madison Boats , he is a great guy and you would do well to spend some time with him
