sounds good. i think we are dewinterizing BigDaddy's boat on sunday, but that shouldn't take more than 1/2 hr.

Dewinterizing the motor just takes a flick of the key in the ignition. It's the other systems that take a few more minutes.

even before i turn the key, i always put a fresh charge on the batteries. while i'm charging the batteries, i check the drive lube, engine oil levels, hydraulic reservior levels, spark plugs (some marinas remove them during winterization), belts, hoses, installing the prop, install the transom plug, etc. i always make sure the sea pump is working as soon as we fire it up. sometimes it takes a little bit to prime the pump. it is also a great time to make sure all of the navigation lights work too. no biggy.... his boat goes in for a drive service on monday, so any drive issues will be taken care of at that time.

Check oars for splinters, make sure cooler stocked with fresh opossum jerky, make sure shotgun is loaded for fishing. Ready to go. Why does that take 1/2 hour?

It has been a while. Leanna and I have been extremely busy the last couple of months. My youngest brother is getting married in less than a month.

I'll give you a call Saturday. I've got an appointment for the lower unit to be pulled and the alignment checked at 10:00 am. I hope to be on the water by lunch time.

The weather SUCKED! But I did get a chance to run the Cig and make sure that everything was ok. Now I am pumped and ready for next weekend. I saw BSB out on the water. But did not know that was him.

No, AmerFire [smilie=265.gif] didn't make it down plus he's waiting for his new lift to get installed before he drops the boat in.
