Dropped it off for some service after two wonderful weeks of vacation. Back to work for a few days before doing it all over again....

Actually did this yesterday, but it got late. Started a fuel gauge install, and ordered a PowerTech prop from Ken at PropGods.

Took my 14yo and two of her best friends out in the Gulf.....making memories!
Some 20-23" hubcap trigger, beeliners, and a nice Lane Snapper, all before 10:30AM.

Gave her the full treatment today inside and out!! She was not in bad shape for a 2015 with 200hrs, but wow, what a difference a little work does and especially on the interior.

Funny. The admiral won't even touch a fish on our boat. Dead or alive.

Replaced the burned out halogen bulbs in my ACR remote searchlight. The replacement bulbs seem unnecessarily expensive.

Installed new RAM mount for the new Garmin. Set up the Garmin. Installed the new transducer. Swapped out the co-pilot guts in the Minn Kota with the new i-pilot guts. Testing it all out tomorrow.

Fixed a leak in hydraulic steering, then filled and bled it. Good as new now.
