I got quite a bit accomplished on the boat today, I'm kinda sore from jumping in and out of, and crawling under the boat about 100 times, but over all it feels good to have these items done.

-Perfect Pass install complete (worst part was drilling the hole)
-Fixed floor behind motor box where hinges were pulling out
-Changed spark plugs
-Greased rudder
-Changed fuel filters

I'm ready for a shower and a beer.

Spent the morning putting in a ceiling fan in the den. Unfortunately, their was not an existing drop. I think I lost 5lbs in the attic pulling the electric, putting in the brace and punching the hole.

Sounds exactly like my last weekend, except I didn't change the fuel filters.

I guessed!

I drilled it even with the back of the plug, 6 1/2 inches to the center if the paddlewheel. Let's hope for the best!

As long as there is nothing to block the flow of water in front of the paddle wheel :)

So, when is the lake test?

Good work! We were so wind blown down here today, we had to opt for Discount Lion Safari instead of skiing. Tomorrow looks like great weather and low wind. 'Bout time!

They were very good, I took in the old one and they were able to cross reference it. Do you need the Napa part number?

New Carpet on the bunks, fenders and v for the bow. New rollers, lights, and swapped out the boat buddy for roller. And spent a few more hours on the teak.

I forgot I also aligned the shaft. It took all of about 15 minutes, pulled the 4 nuts and bolts and it was as close to perfect as I could want. Put the four nuts and bolts back in...........done.
