Slept on it, bought it, took it offshore, slept on it again. Now I'm going to prep it for haul out and shipping.

First splash after the refresh and repower stared with an overnight with the GF and 25% of the kids, and had a very quick shakedown cruise before the wind came up.

oh, and a little ramp mishap to start the trip, but nobody needs to know about that.

Made a hydrofoil for my 40 Merc. Just thinking of to fit it without drilling holes in the cav plate. But old motor so maybe not much harm in drilling, and could always be fill welded later...

Default Cleaned the bilge etc

It was time for the annual bilge cleaning and haul out/pressure wash/wax job. Then I purchased a custom boat shade via amazon to help limit oxidation. Spring can’t come soon enough!

Went to haul out and met up with Caj. Removed nav light, radar, horn, lightning rod. Rode all over Pompano with Caj looking for RV antifreeze (West Marine's 2 day shipping was 6 days...) Helped the gentlemen at Boats International winterize her. Props got removed and stowed in the anchor locker. Currently watching her get wrapped for the long haul to Tacoma.

And I can see what you are talking about. HPDI shows data lines while idling and you can see it says cyl 4 and 6 (I think) were not contributing until you place the motor in drive. But in neutral nope! You should hear that baby roar!

I will start a thread on all this one day...

Big boat is hibernating so finally got the little boat in my shed and started sanding. Lots of work to do and I'm hoping to have her ready for paint by spring.


The day I got the boat.

Picked up a little propane heater to take the edge off.

Tight fit, but doable.
