I got the key out of the glove box and brought it inside the house.

I redid the hoses on the the KGB ballast to supplemental sac system so that it would vent properly. I found that the sacs would collapse on themselves and then create a situation where the tank would nearly implode from the negative pressure.

I might start a thread on this later if what I did does not fix it. One time out so far and it worked, but I am nervous about it still. The key is to have the vent and drain ports close enough to each other that you can't completely collapse the sac without air going from the overflow to the drain port. When the overflow was on one end of the sac, and the drain at the other, that was bad.

We have had 68 days this summer over 100, record is 69 from 1922. We braved the heat a few times.

Used the boat for 3 days straight and ran 2 tanks through it.

Wash her yesterday in 115 degree heat and followed her up with a coat of wax. The ladyfriend did the interior, so the boat is nice and pretty for the next adventure.

I never mind doing the outside, sure is nice to have someone do the interior. Makes for a fast turn around.

we're gone for two weeks but we'll be back at it in three. Maybe we'll see you on the river.
Didn't bother to go down since it looked like it was going to rain all day. Besides, I got to clean out the basement. Who wouldn't rather do that instead of being on the water?

Too cold and windy today to play. So, installed registration letters/numbers on the ol' gal. Concerned about my winch strap, so starting to look to replace that.
