the less glamorous jobs are often the most important if you want to get to the water. I fitted these to my previous boats trailer after bearing failure towing it home from the PO, I wish I could fit these to this one but the current hubs wont accept them . A messy job but I liked the peace of mind it gave on a long haul

how big a pain in the arse was it to buff around the graphic? I'm doing the same thing... stopped at the graphic (until I pull the boat out of the garage).

Can you describe what you did?

(I need to replace my numbers eventually but I buffed around those as well... and if you look carefully you can tell)

Last night I replaced my rear facing tower lights with some 2" square LEDs and pointed them forward. I'll have feedback after tonight on how I like them.



On another note....

Anyone know what exact screw size I need for my jl tower speakers to install my led rings? I was going to install last night and realized the screws were about 3/8 to short.

Ahh, nothing is as good as a fresh teak finish for the holiday! My first go at 75/25 linseed oil/mineral spirits. Will never use teak oil again...

Wipe down with boat candy and aired her out!

PS also bumped into my first TT member on the lake today - ironically another 205v owner.

(ignore the custom Silver Bullet Windshield shade)

that's one sick looking tow vehicle.

On a side note I got my MC cover from dpolen here on TT. Good fit even goes over the grab rail around my engine. Cheers Doug Just another piece to the never ending MC puzzle. Now To continue with the stereo install.

Got my replacement solenoid and put the Arco 70200 back in the '77 today.
I forgot how great that gear reduction starter sounds.

Finally got some pictures loaded from work I did over Memorial Day. I got the fender back from the body shop that was busted from a tire. I have some DinoGrip from http://www.wakejunky.com/ that I will cut for the grips, as well as replace the traction pads on the other side.

Before:


After:


I did some other regular maintenance with no pictures.

Added some gas struts to the observer seat and engine box:



And added some boat buckles that I have had around for a while. When I bought the boat, it had a hard ballast tank attached to the swim platform. I removed it shortly after getting the boat, and apparently when I did, I attached the teak spaced out slightly further than it was from the factor. This worked out well because now the hooks for the boat buckles fit between the teak and transom without moving it around:
