Lucky enough to be able to use it again this weekend.

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!

Sold 32’ Whitewater and picked up 02 blazer bay 1860. Just started updating her. Anyone with one or similar Kenner etc. rolled gunnel? Looking for prop numbers as current beat up. Talked to Ken but he doesn’t have any prev. data on this exact boat. Also starting search for new tinted windshield builder.
