No pictures, but I feel like I accomplished quite a bit. New plugs, wires, cap, rotor, upgraded to Pertronix electronic ignition, re-set timing, new starter to starter relay cable. Idles well on the hose, I'll have to wait a week or two to get it in the lake.
Bent up a few pieces of metal to mount LED strips to, going to start back on that project in the next couple of weeks, trying to get ready for our week long trip in early June. I'll try to post pics of the LED project, although I think my mods might offend most of the purists and MCOCD folks.

Pressure washed carpet, scrubbed with laudry detergent and pressure washed again. Shop vac'd it and sprayed it with 1/2 fabric softner 1/2 water and parked in sun. Looked and felt perfect until I slung wax and and buffing pad wool all over it Does anyone tape off when waxing...I got buildup in a lot of the cracks.

At least the buffing went well. Got too tired to do fenders and second round with foam pad and polish...Next weekend...and then there's the platform

Put the bimini on for the first time and still managed to get burnt.

That's a gorgeous boat, PICKWICK! I assume you do your boating in N. AL on Lake Pickwick? Where are the registration numbers?

Dude! That boat is gorgeous - when are you moving to Texas and joining our club?

I'm on the Tennessee side in Pickwick but you can be in all three states (AL, MS, TN) at any given moment there. Guy I bought it from private laked and didn't have to have stickers (he says).

Forgot to mention I used the Bar Keeper's Friend on the rubrail from EastTexSkiers recommendation. Worked Great!

Thanks guys.
