Finally got to install the new boat cover. Working on a fiberglass deck with 6\" of snow on it is not fun!!!

Removed the batteries, cleaned the posts and recharged them all the way and left them on maintenance charge.

Put new furniture on it. Not exactly sure how I'll arrange it yet though. Not exactly sure I need 18 places to sit either!

Ran offshore with the wife and kid to go get dinner, picked up a few sea bass and some mangs. Dinner was soooo good. God I love Florida.

Changed lower units from 4.80 to 5.44HD lowers. Will hurt my top speed a little bit, but should be way more reliable

Just ordered brand new Pompanette helms cushions for my Wellcraft from Steve at Lost Bwana Outfitters. Found him on another thread where another reader complemented his knowledge and service...I found the same great outcome working with him, Thx Steve!

Cant wait to yell at everyone who tries to sit their sunscreen'd ass down on them!

Always looking for more storage on the CC.
Assembled and installed a storage box under the leaning post seat cushion that I also installed hinges on today in order to flip it up.
Looks like I’ve got room for two more on the ends.

Little boat, big job. Been very aware of a spongy deck in my now 22 year old Maritime Skiff 14'. Had no idea it was as bad as I found it to be.

Started last week removing the deck & digging out the very wet foam. 6 days of a few hours a day of careful cutting & digging, about 8 large trash bags & 250# of wet foam later, I am about ready to start doing some glassing in preparation for the new deck

Poor little boat. It has been sitting, neglected but fully covered, in my backyard since Sept 2017.
