No motor up saves the motor if water leaks... a thread or two recently went by on that.

The bottom looks great! Doesn't it kill you that you can't get where the bunks are.

BTW... my MCOCD would have me replacing those black zip ties on the frame with white ones... and/or replacing the line clamps that are broken.

Yeah - Drives me nuts that I can't get on the bunks...so I put liquid wax on the carpeting a couple times a season.

I replaced the clamps once and they popped again - I have a new brake line I want install this fall.

the black zip ties are on the list to replace..

I'm surprised the water intake grille and the tracking fins aren't already polished

I did start working on polishing the rudder - what a PIA - even with my MCOCD.. these fins have such a rough casting texture... I guess I could remove them and put them in a vice and polish them up... something to work on when I can't ski anymore when I am in my late 80's.... I should be able to get another 30 years out this baby yes?

I sit here waiting for the boat to complete its long journey to Melbourne Australia. I am sure when it gets here I will have lots to do.
