Yesterday I remounted my loose bow rail. Drilled out stripped screw holes, filled with dowels and 4200 and re-mounted stanchions.

had it wrapped a few weeks ago, laced up the t-bag and the top last week, waiting on the new vhf antennae base and nav light to show up and then it will be ready to splash.

Default Fuel

I have 2 35 gallon fuel tanks on my 26' Pacemaker. I siphoned a half gallon of fuel from each tank. Nothing suspect came out of the starboard tank but I got about pint of water from the port tank. Both tanks have about 5 gallons in each as I now leave as little fuel in the tanks at the end of the year. I hope that I got most of the water.

On Friday, I drilled new holes next to the stripped holes in the hatch over my gas tank and replaced the screws. Then I filled in the old holes and sealed the hatch with 4200. Yesterday, I used 4200 to seal the hatch over my gas tank and I ran the depthfinder's transducer wire. Splash day is this Saturday.

Rolled it out of my garage, cleaned her up a bit and ran the engine on muffs for a little while. Can't wait to get her in the water in a few weeks, had a beautiful 80 degree day here in CT yesterday!
