Well, gotta get one pick up here of the final accomplishment...took about 30 minutes to maneuver the boat just right to get it in straight...

No damage but rubbed the port side tire on the side of the garage...should have removed the other trim section and we would have had no issues...

I think the wifey has some pics on her phone...will have to check today and update this post.

Now, to put everything away today...

I drained the block before the drive home and I plan on running antifreeze through tomorrow. I have a little bit of oxidation both on my deck and hull so I started a little wet sanding. So far I am pleased as I only sanded with 1500 and buffed but I may have to go up to 2000 at least on the red gel. Below is the before and after on a section of the deck. I can't wait to get the entire boat looking like this.]
That looks fantastic

I think our floor has 4 screws total and one is starting to not grab...may look at this as a project more over the winter....
Yeah, I had to do some repairs on my 92 floor.

I mixed up some resin with some of this milled glass fiber and then pack it into the holes. Once dry I just redrilled for correct size.

My cousin lives in the city and he bought it for his kids...but there really wasn't room for the kids to use it and it was slower that sh!t (go figure)...so he gave it to us and we got a new battery and renmoved the governor all together and now it flies!

Yes, I know, mustang in a chevy garage but it makes the kiddos happy.


Loft was made to catch all the seasonal stuff for the pool, outdoor decorations, etc.

Nice and tight .....ay rockman.Looks good.

I winterized today....Used the tote for the first time.I'm a believer.I was amazed how fast the water went down with the boat at idle.Even with the garden hose flowing into the tote the water level would drop.
