Beauty. The Ida S always kind of seemed to be the flagship of the Burger Boatworks. She's a grand old dame and a prime example of the craftsmanship those boys in Manitowoc were putting out. It was a great boat for a guy like Philly to have. http://www.fishtug.com/forums/

And roomy inside too. When I worked on the Ida with him The Winter of 1996-97. We had over 20 boxes of chub nets on the deck and we still had room to repair and slug in new twine. I remember we fished 4 - ten box gangs of chub nets. Our biggest lift - 1700# chubs. Our best Ride - North wind blowing 45 -50 mph. I dressed all the way in ! He was a great guy to work for, a real gentleman.

Yup! She represents Burger in every way. It's sad to think all the old Burgers are what? 70 some years old? Eventually there will be no more except those used at museums and such. That is if they even get a hold of one.
