    Must be nice...I haul out Tuesday. Lake is forecasted to die down a bit before then...but today is 30+mph gales and 5-8s this weekend. Might have to wait until Tuesday to pump out...

    Been out for four weeks now,she went in the heated shed monday. The wife and i spent the previous three weekends striping the bottom and sanding it down for the new epoxy bottom .I am getting too old for that kind of work plus a 50 hr week at work in between.Wont be long before the 50 hr in between is history though.

    Agreed Woody, but the fun is over for another season. I have a few winter projects though.

    Changed the oil and emptied all the stuff off yesterday, getting pulled next week. Only had the boat out of the slip once sense Labor Day. Kept hopping for a great Fall weekend but it has been so crappy on the weekends, I gave up all hope.

    Came back to port Clinton this morning. South passage was the roughest.. 4 footers but the rest of the trip was fine. I am glad we got one more weekend in at PIB. Always a good time, good food and good friends.

    Yeah that would have been a bit rough, cold and wet in my 280. Glad you're back home safe and sound.

    Well Metro was beautiful this weekend and so was the food. I had to have a talk with my Sheltie about laying down between two Regals. 20191012_155339.jpg 20191013_111509.jpg 20191012_150510.jpg

    And then the sad part came today. 20191014_102832.jpg 20191014_102809.jpg 20191014_104206.jpg 20191014_105934.jpg
