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.

Replaced the VST filter, fuel pressure regulator screen filter, canister filter and the engine mounted fuel filter. Checked fuel pumps for leaks, all good.
I did injure my elbow in the process, seriously think I've torn a tendon or something , soldiered on though. Fuel water separator and sea star helm seal tomorrow.

I hope you shopped insurance quotes around before signing up. Progressive and boat US were astronomically higher then anyone else, especially boat US. If you are on this site I would think you've heard of charter lakes, I highly recommend you look around a little bit more. Its certainly your business and I probably should butt out, but this forum wouldn't be much of a fourm if we didn't voice our opinions or share our knowledge.

You don't see many warm climate boats in the PNW. They like nice warm cosy cabins to run their boats from.

Changed Racor fuel filters. Changed water impellers. Replaced the neutral switch so the starboard Suzuki would start. Ran the CH31 for the first time this year and then cleaned it up.
