I got the boat out for a few hours and after a set of sky skiing and wakeboarding, I decided to try a little grease on the rudder and the steering cable as the steering is pretty heavy and difficult. As I suspected though, it did not help and a new steering cable is in order. I did however, get the Mother's polish out and polished the steering wheel up real quick, which worked nicely. I have much more cleaning to do this winter though, among other things.

Yeah, it did make a big difference. I started on the main pulley for the serpentine belt as well, but haven't finished it, but it has made a pretty big difference on the little that I did do to it. The selfie was not intended. As a matter of fact, I tried not to get my face in it, but oh well.

Well I spent the weekend in the hull of my old boat installing a heater, I volunteered to do when I sold the boat......remind me not to do that again. But got some experience, 06 X-15 with MCX.

I continued to work on mine 08 X-Star with LY6. I need more tube to run the vent around the front on that... which looks exciting to install :/
