Thanks for all the wonderful comments. Sorry I haven't been on TT as much as I was over the winter time with the restore. I have been using the boat alot this summer. Now that most of the little things that do go wrong when you restore one have been worked out, I am verry happy with the boat. I yet still have to mount the teak platform on and I think after that most of the work will be all done.

Sad day today I had to take the boat out of the water. I wish summer wouldn't have to leave us so soon. It is only 45 here today in Michigan. With the cold setting in it is time to start one more project. I will also be finishing up the the boat I will post some pics of the progress.

Must have been a great summer with the boat. Haven't heard from you in quite a while. Hope all is well.

Hi Peter, it was a great summer. Now that winter is setting in I will be on here more. Everything has been going great on my end. How have you been doing?

Other than spending a few days in the hospital dealing with a recurring thing, pretty gosh darn good. Got the boat pretty much ready for winter. Might be able to squeeze her in the garage if I take the platform off the back. Otherwise she will have to spend one more year outside.

Gun deer season starts Saturday so most of my efforts have been applied to that, and will be until the WI deer season ends after Thanksgiving.

Hi Peter how did the hunting go for you? I got a deer this year. Only by my buddy hitting it with his jeep. I still have some meat in the freezer.
Glad to hear your feeling better. Have you done any work on your boat? I will be on more that it is winter.

Hey Jim. Took a 5 pointer in MN and my nephew took 8 point bucks two days in a row from the same stand. Nothing in WI but we are in an area that the WI Dept. of Conversation gave away too many doe permits for too long and was bucks only this season. I was close to the same large buck on two occasions but never had an opportunity. Next year I have a plan for that guy.

All I have done with the boat is brush snow off the tarp covering it. Looks like it will be after Christmas before I get back to working on it. Still late season doe hunting to be done, as well as goose season to deal with. Then I have to replace some bearings in the skidframe of the sled.

So whats the story on your deer?
