Ok....... (this is over the weekend)

Got name put on...(special thanks to Lisa, from Bluewater Graphics in Boca Raton... Awesome job!!!)

Reattached everything on the flybridge, installed masthead light, routed 12v power to the flybridge, decorated for boat parade, and went in the parade with the wife and kids(might have even enjoyed a cocktail!!)

Went and looked at the new motors hanging on the back and new steering system. Can't wait to get it back on Thursday!

I missed mine. It has been gone a month now. I hope the new owner is enjoying her as much I did. Boat shopping is a great distraction though.

I walked outside with a cold beverage and apologized to her for not using her for the last two weeks. I reassured her thou, that this weekend we will be together the entire weekend. Momma has got to work and the kids are staying at the grandparents. A cold beverage and tight lines weekend coming up. It may be a little cool thou, 78 and partly sunny.

I've been doing winter projects. Today I removed the bow rail and did some paint touch up to the interior.

well its been 5 months that I havent used mine. Today was rinse it off, clean fish boxes, check batteries, and start engine day, I try to start her at least once every 2 weeks and let her run a while. once in awhile I add 5 gals gas w/ more star tron, and once a month hook up to my truck and drive a few mls so the brakes dont get locked up and the trailer moves a little, just a little tuff right know w/ finances and now being out of work due to a work related incident. but I sure do love sit'n in her and think'n Its gonna get better soon and then ALL RIGHT...BACK IN ACTION, just a little glitch right now, take a lok ....aint she purdy

Replaced the raw water wash down / live well pump and hose. Dreamed about being offshore.

Final adjustments to the trailer. Added the extra strap hook eyes to the trailer frame. Can secure the Bow with a strap over the front for long distance travel. Rewired the trailer light connections and used heat shrink so the light wires will not corrode. Should be a law against using them open clip on connectors on a salt water trailer! Finished the Electric over Hydraulic brake install. That is a nice addition. Back 14K lbs down the ramp and having brakes. WOW Pulled the grease caps and added grease so she can make the 1000 mile trip. Aired up the tires too. made some Hollow Ace wind on leaders and got the rods rigged. I am almost ready for the Sail Fish trip over Christmas.

Thought about it. Hasn't seen water since 29th of September (not that anyone is keeping track) and excitement is building for fishing trip this Saturday. Hopefully nothing will break, although it has been run every 2-3 weeks, so fingers are crossed.

This is my crazy season at work...I buttoned up my place the week before Thanksgiving and probably won't see my boat until the first or second week of January

So to answer the OP's question-I looked at it...thats what I did to it today.

On a Brighter note, business is great!

About a year and a half ago, we bought our vacation home in FL, and keep the boat there. It's nice that I dont have to trailer it back and forth, but, I dont get to "tinker" on it much anymore. I need to go down there for a weekend and just piddle with it....miss it.
