Actually it was yesterday, but put the new impeller in for the season and went boating!

Those fenders look awesome.

It was 70 and sunny here but 20mph winds all day. I waxed the boat and put a new terminal on the ground cable from the engine. The old one wasn't making a good connection and gave me some trouble starting the boat a couple of times last year.

Ok, explain how you did that one!

I need to re-do the trailer sometime and would be cool to have the boat still at the garage while working on the trailer.

Physics and a floor jack!

VERY simplistic explanation: Lower the trailer tongue as low as it'll go. Block up the back. Raise trailer, which lifts stern off trailer and onto blocks. Use floor jack and blocks to get bow of trailer. Carefully walk trailer out.

Sounds easy but took me +3hrs(?) because of all the cross members on the trailer. Definitely something you'll want to take your time with and be very cautious.
