Default What did you do with your boat today??

Ok, over on powerstroke.org I follow a thread titled "what did you do to your 7.3 today?".
I searched THT for a similar thread and couldn't find one. So here we go! Post what you did, the good, bad, and the ugly! Most of all, keep it real, and have fun with it!! I'll start..

Put new canvas on, polished bow rail(my least favorite task.. polishing metal), pressure washed cockpit wood, all yesterday. Having the name applied to the transom today(will post pic later today)

Made a new bait tray. My first effort at working with starboard; lots of router work required. The small partitioned part is to hold lures, hooks, etc. that need rinsed before being stowed.

I went into the shop, looked at her in depression. I have had Pneumonia since Thanksgiving and it was 70* and no wind all week here. Sure enough as soon as I get better it blows N at 20 and cold.

Installed a new 740s with transom mount transducer, changed the hoses in my freshwater tank that were leaking, and now trying to design a storage bin system for the console.

Just looked at in on the lift as I went to work, then remembered I have to go to work so I can keep looking at it there. I rather not go to work and fish or even work on the boat all day but I dont know anyone who is going to pay me to do that, btw if anyone is out there who can I really dont need that big of a salary....... Sunday I plan to do some fishing and hopefully get a few in the box.

Questioned as I drove by on the way to work why some richard cranium would park a pop-up camper two inches away from my boat at the storage area.

I just looked at it sitting in the garage.

But on the up side, nothing broke, so it didn't cost many any money today.

I consider that a win.

I think about it sitting in its rack...wondering if the dick heads at the marina moved the boat that is leaking a quart of oil a week on my outboard and bracket...or at least move me to a place that it wont get leaked on...like they said 3 weeks ago.
