Blew snow from my driveway on to it! (Don't worry it's wrapped)

Dropped it off at the custom glass shop.....having a new tank installed, new trim put on and some glass work done...oh and BTW if the first shop would have done their job correctly I wouldn't have to write this check.

But I'm also having the bottom paint removed and the hull sides painted so that's cool!!

Screwed around with my new/used ray 218 and raymic install. Went at it for 10 minutes then it was too damn cold.

Used a lot of the "outdoor bleach" that was recommended in my chlorine thread to clean most of the boat. I'm about 1/2 way there. I got the hull completely clean and most of the deck.

I took the three teak, louvered doors from my "project boat" apart, sanded all the frames and slats, then glued and clamped them together again.

yes the bolts are a lil long they are getting trimmed.
and the middle bar on the tbag has a hanger on the inside sewn in.. no saging and annoying straps.

i also de winterized the motor and used evenrude engine tuner/carbon killer... shes clean and runs like a champ after sitting.. excited to say the least..

Repaired flybridge steering. Completely replaced all freshwater plumbing, and added a freshwater washdown to the cockpit.

Repainted my motor and installed a fuel water seperator, and a fuel flow gauge. Can't wait to get out on the water now.
