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.

Removed the transducer cables from my wiring bundle under the starboard gunnel, relocated my transducers on the transom, and then re-ran the cables down the port gunwale to reduce potential interference.

Cut the shrink wrap off and got all maintenance done earlier this week. Today installed two new batteries, and went to a 27 series from a 24 series.

Had it cleaned and cleaned some of the cushions myself. Couldn't find the key to the trailer lock, so I had it cut off.

I was greasing my wheel bearings on my posilube/superlube? axle and grease came out both innere seals. I never knew it could do that. Perhaps both races are bad? Discovered a spring on one side had three leafs on the front side of the axle and only one leaf on the back side of the axle. The axle doesn't look all that healthy either. Pulled off the tires and the springs and axle. Getting a new axle ,springs and hubs to put under my 33 year old aluminum trailer.

Default What did you do with your boat today

Cleaned the head. Trying a new approach attacking the head smell. Using Calgon plus liquid soap. Seems to be working. You mix 2 cups Calgon, 1 cup liquid soap in gallon of warm water and flush to holding tank. Each time you empty holding tank, put this mixture back into system. Starting to smell like a Spring day in the head. Wife is happy.
