Winterized, changed oils, filters, greased her, and changed fuel filters. Then used some Totally Awesome to clean the interior and 303 over that. Scrubbed carpet and put her away nice and clean.

Removed mufflers and aft exhaust hoses. Cleaned 29 years worth of greasy dirty residue out from under them. There is a four inch section where each muffler has worn a trough through the gel coat about 3/4 inch wide. I will have to correct that. I also discovered that at some point somebody replaced the fuel line, but didn't bother moving the muffler on the left side in order to run the new line in the original location. So now I get to decide if I want it where it is or where it originally was.

This picture looks almost unreal - lighting is everything I guess. Nice pic though.

Indeed they are .... What I understand from the previous owner is that the tower was added by the dealer when the boat was new or close to it. I would like to put an ND on it, but can't motivate myself to fork over the cash when the current tower works.

Have to switch gears now and get everything else at the house winterized, celebrate the holidays and start working on the boat to-do's for next year!

And uncle Ed was nice enough to leave a case if beer in the fridge.
Wait a minute! You can mow the yard each week but the boat is winterized?

I could make all kinds of excuses, but it's just too dang cold to get in the water this time of year. I'm not 20 something anymore. Besides there are 4 maybe 5 weeks left to mow. After that I'll come up with some excuse to visit the old girl.
