Take the boat out of the garage, run it, put the boat back in the garage. If it was work for Sodar, it was work for me too!

That's why you spend all that time over the winter working on the boat - so it is ready when you are.

Drilled 6 holes in a perfectly good boat...

Used the magnet method the guys at wakemakers recommended and worked perfect! Now have 3 each 1" inlets for the new ballast system. Electrical done, bronze valves & fittings installed. Just working on the hose connections now. Will snap some pic when i get close to buttoning it up.

Installed my new speakers with new speaker wire and put the plugs in where heater fittings were. Took some measurements for fresh air exhaust and muffler delete

Got the old skid pads off and cleaned the fenders...just followed someone else's suggestion of using wd40 on the glue...spray and wait 10 minutes, then scrape off with a razor blade...easy job.

Finally got around to getting the insulation installed on the doghouse...scraped all of the old glue off as in the first picture, had one side of the old insulation complete, so I peeled it off to make templates and then installed the new insulation. Now just trim and tape seems and then work on the cut outs for the cup holders and vent.
