What Work did you do on your Mastercraft Today?

Here's your chance to puff out your chest and tell the world about your Mastercraft DIY accomplishment of the day. Your spouse probably doesn't care. Your neighbors probably don't care. However, we care. So let's hear about it. I'll start.

Wired up my Clarion head unit so I could run my Sirius sat radio through it. Not a huge accomplishment, but sounds good, so I'm happy.

Looked out my bedroom window to make sure it was still in the lift.

I did the same then took her for a spin, just because. Most of last weekend consisted of helping Creeklife (who lives across the canal) fix the motor in his 190.

Sunday I took all the tires off the trailer and cleaned out the fender wells, calipers and waxed the trailer frame. Before putting the wheels back on I cleaned the backside of the wheels and got all the brake dust and grime off. A coat of wax on the whole wheel and it was done. The trailer really looks like the day I first saw it in Chicago even after at least 12,000 miles.

Yesterday I polished the boat with Finesse-It and my Porter Cable 7424. WHOA WHOA WHOA! I thought the boat was nice and shiney before, but this stuff brought out the luster I had never seen before. I was looking through my photo gallery of the boat this morning and I really believe the boat shines better than when it was 2 weeks old.

Today I am going to put a few coats of wax on her and call it good. Should bring even more shine out with a few coats of wax, too.

Tomorrow I am going to clean the interior and load it up for the weekend...

Holy smokes! Impressively ambitious.

I'm not even sure where my trailer is. Last I saw it, it was out in the weeds on the back part of the property.

Well, THAT is impressive! Way to make everyone else feel like we neglect our boats!
