I finished up all the curtains for my Carver and installed. Tomorrow I have to work on the trim tabs. I need to drill them and add zincs as electrolysis attacked the mounting screws.

Thought about what I need to take with me to take the tires and wheels off in order to replace 11 year old trailer tires. Was gonna go at it this morning, but the new 2” snowfall discouraged me, so I will do this on Monday. I hate winter, especially this time of year!

Tested out newly installed Rhodan and autopilot and took my mom fishing to about 100'. Slow day. One keeper grouper, 4 keeper mangroves up to 22", a handful of kings (they are THICK in 50-80 FOW out of Tampa if anyone is curious). Still a good day on the water despite the slow action.

rigid industries 10” led flood/spot combo light. Extremely bright and works really good. Very sturdy.

Got the trim tabs off,(broke 3 screws off) drilled the hole for the zincs,cleaned em up and reinstalled.Got new engine strainers on after having to trim off the old clam intakes.I used a cutting wheel on a grinder which caught my glove and cut my index finger pretty good. I then took the shrinkwrap off the 15' and put the canvas on it.

Had off work today so I decided to paint the bottom of the Carver. Going to try and wax the hull the rest of this week.

Wrapped 3M #33 tape around microphone cord that rotted away. Pain in ass.Takes 2 people to do a clean job. Raymarine 54.
No replacement mic available best I can tell. Decent radio though.
