Ordered a SS power knob off the trading dock $22.00

Ordered one of those cray expandable hoses to use on the saltwater wash down: 25$

Ordered triple axle tire covers for the trailer to protect them from the sun and dry rot: 45$


Pretty good deals so far, Heading to the Depot tomorrow to pick up some 12" Ball Bungees to use to stabilize rods in the rocket launcher in rough weather.

Vacuumed out trans fluid, began removing trans before running into rusted solid bolts. Penetrating oil and tapping throughout the day while cleaning.. Drenched with oil and now letting them soak for the night.

Last night, removed old stereo wiring and ran new RCA cables into my upper storage box for IPod to amp control. Removed all pump filters and cleaned. Repaired a bad wire on my wash down pump. Getting ready for tournament season.

Picked up some Bennett tabs a few weeks ago, which will be an early spring project.

Used this... Works unbelievably well on everything on the boat. Plus adds protection with no white overspray residue. If ur boat is new or fairly new and shiny, use this after washing and you will thank me later. No affiliation by the way. It's just awesome!

Went to the calendar to highlight the best sandbar days for this Summer to use the boat...as well as blocking out the best nights for bonfires on the beach.

Not hard for you Southern guys to weed out us Northern'er by our posts... A lot of us up North are still looking at white "igloos" of shrink-wrap located in our driveways.

Too cold and windy to fish today so I tucked the Whaler into the garage and repaired a gel coat bash on the bow (previous owner). My first try at this type of repair, I'm pleased with the result. Spectrum Color's Gel Coat Patch kit was a perfect color match. Dealer's estimate for the repair was $275 - $375. My cost for the patch kit and some sandpaper was less than $40

For our chosen sandbar "Browns Bank" just outside Plymouth Harbor...we have dependent on moon phase about a 3.25 hour window before low tide and after after.

So a chosen daytime tide is a 2:30 pm low at the "Bank" as we call it, this gives you good sandbar anchorage about 11:45 am to get on...and you get to stay until 5:45 pm when our South Shore Oasis magically disappears!
*footnote; I have seen un-seasoned skippers let their boat go dry for hours when there is a chance of afternoon thunder showers...when they hit and your dry, these guys have learned a very scary and dangerous lesson! Know your weather before you decide to stop tending your boat in the shallows!

Best nighttime "Bonfire" evening trips are about a 7:30-8:30 pm low.

Get on sandbar about 5:30-6:00 pm with light to set up camp and have dinner...and hauling anchor about midnight for a cruise back in.

Ever been down my neck of the woods to boat?
