Will be at the lake/Springfield a couple weekends in April for soccer. Hopefully I will find time to clean the boat. Going to try and redo the carpet backing this weekend. Keeping the boat and condo for now.

Did it last weekend. Boat is getting surveyed and hopefully sold tomorrow...:grin:. Signing contract on my new one later today I hope..
Boat is 90% done cleaning and waxing. Hope to get it out of storage in 2 weeks and put it in the water.
Good luck. I've been a 2 boat owner since June:smt100
Friday will be our first night spent on the boat this season.
I don't think it is staying with me. This guy is getting a turn key boat for a great deal. Seatrial today...:smt038
Our marina does not open till may 1st. Its gonna be a long April....
Congrats on the new boat!! Best wishes and safe boating!
Had a professional detailing company do the works on my boat today. First time ever I did not do all the cleaning and waxing myself. Looking forward to getting in the water next week!
Went down to the boat today and spent two-plus hours cleaning the deck. Man was it dirty. Then some friends joined us for a cruise. We stopped at the fuel dock and I noticed the price was $2.79.9. I called the fuel supplier--he's a former client of mine and asked when they were going to fill the tank and I politely suggested the new diesel was going to be cheaper than the old price. I told him I was going to take on about 400 gallons and would wait for a better price.
He called me back in a few minutes and said they were going to lower the price tomorrow to $2.06.7 tomorrow but if I took on 400+ gallons today he'd give me the lower price. We pumped in 367 gallons and the pump shut off. We had drained the tank down to below the fuel pickup. I called 'em back and they said they would give me the lower price and let me know when they refilled the tank.
Now THAT is the kind of customer service I like. I saved $268 and change by making that phone call and I'll probably take on another 100 gallon when they fill the tank.
When I walked down to our marina a couple weeks ago they still had the gas price at $4.29. Something tells me we won't get below $3.00 this summer.
Boat recommissioning Thursday. Water not on at the dock yet
Launched today in 30 knot winds. By the time I got across the lake and to my slip (a 20 minute ride) the port side was encrusted in ice. First ever sub freezing launch for me. Glad the forecast is to warm up this week.

got the camper top on today, outdrive oil topped off (changed it before winter but only had 1 qt so topped off today), greased all fittings on outdrive and trailer (still have to do steering in engine compartment). need to replace a bulb for my stern light and re-seal all transom screws and rails, cleats, etc.
i also have a power steering cooler leak. not sure if its a hose, loose clamp, or the cooler itself. hopefully its a little warmer next weekend so i can get that figured out. after that its washing, buffing, and general cleanup. should be ready after that. hope i can have all that done by the end of April:huh:
Ugh watching it snow here in Michigan. At least it isn't going to stick
Took the shrink off last Sunday. Cleaning up and waxing soon. Plan to launch 4/15....weather permitting.
