correct they are wreck anchors. there actually heavy wreck anchors the tall ones are 5/8s bar and the other one is half inch rebar they are more like hooks. we had some mighty mights but they wernt strong enough so I made these for a 28ft boat

To mimic the post above, we here in SWFL had a beautiful weekend once the morning fog lifted each day. I also mad a run yesterday with my youngest and we ate lunch at her favorite place on the water.

It was a nice day before the next snow storm so, I went to check on my boat an drooled. Waiting for spring time is really hard when you live in a snow state.

While it was not too cold, it was for us down here but had to get out. It was 48* when we left the house but virtually no breeze so I knew it would be beautiful at rest on the water.

Put 26hrs on her this Saturday/Sunday. We made a 290 nautical mile round trip to the floaters, and caught a few tuna.
And, it was cold when we left...about 55°

Well, it’s not me doing it, but today the shop completed replacing both engines. Working on a buff and a wax this afternoon and tomorrow.

Dropped my cushions off to get redone. The wood was pretty far gone.

I also hung my motor and have 90% of the rigging tube ready to attach to the motor. Just need to run my oil line!

I need to know what type of wood should I use for the seats core? And I need to find some through wall strain relief grommets for the power steering lines. I also need a remote oil deck plate (45°) to mount my oil tank in my console! I am having a hard time finding them for less than a kings ransom.

Thought???

My son and I changed out the impeller and thermostat on my Yamaha 90. Never done one before. After watching a Youtube video, it took about an hour.

Launched at 27° and came home at 50°.

Totally worth it!
