Ugh, hate that. I frequently have stuff on my mind that works against me at bed time. I've started keeping a little note pad in my nightstand. I find that if wake up or can't get to sleep I write myself a little note. Something simple like "look at amp wiring". It seems to clear my mid and let me sleep. Works for me, ymmv

Took my perfect pass stargazer master module apart and used a chip to reprogram with the newer software. Then I reset my baselines.

The boat engages so much better and I think it skis smoother.

Interesting. I woke up roughly the same time and got dressed and was headed to the truck to go drive 45 minutes to go work on my boat. When I got to the truck I realized that nothing was wrong with my boat and it was just a dream.

My dream was that I sent a rod through the side of my block again. I had this terrible sick feeling and got dressed. Once at my truck and realizing it was just a dream I went back inside and went back to sleep. I slept great after that.

Installed a flag holder to the tower. Was tired of the suction cup method on the front of the tower speaker. Plus my daughter threw the suction cup overboard last weekend...grrr...so I had to do something different. I really like this and should be more accessible too.

Drained the oil out of my boat and left it draining over night.

Gunna add oil and filter later this week.

Also re wired my trailer Saturday.

Also going to change the transmission fluid.

my neighbors' X has been in the shop all season (cracked block) so he got tired of not having a boat and the dealer gave him a used one for this past weekend.

I get to drive this loner boat (yellow XStar, short one) and within 10 minutes the whole throttle comes apart in my hand, while driving. I kept cramming it back on, it would come off, cram it back on...finally I told the neighbor its time to call it a day or we stop and try to fix it.

The boat had many issues and the dealer was trying to sell it (the neighbor did mention the dealer was working on the throttle when he picked it up) Niiiice.
