  1. As soon as Mother Nature becomes a little more favorable. I have three things left to do. Drop her trailer off of the jack stands. Light her up to pump out the antifreeze, and make sure that she is running on all eight. Top off her gas tank on the way to the boat launch. ODC (one day closer) Denny.
  2. Congratulations! If she fits your needs now, that's what is important. Enjoy her, and the new adventures she will bring you and your family. And we do love pictures. Denny.
  3. She's standing tall, and looking good!!! And may the wind always be at your back. (sailor talk) Denny.
  4. When I was in the service the guys would warm up a can of sea rations by dropping it down the exhaust of a DC Cat Dozer, the operator would give it a little power and blow the can back out, talk about a pressure cooker. LOL Denny.
  5. Dog house is the best seat in the house, I love sitting there while I let someone else drive. Here is my buffet table. Denny.

    Trash in the tank

    Thanks Wing, I will see if I can get at mine to take it apart to inspect it. Of course, I'm old school, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. And it was put together in 1985. Denny.

    Trash in the tank

    2 years ago I lost the seal from a star tron bottle while filling my tank. So the first thing that I did was to take one from another bottle that I had and got a small bottle filled it with gas and put the seal in it. The seal was made out of some sort of styrofoam. I left it in there for a couple of months, it never dissolved. There was one time while running that the engine shut down, I let it set for a couple of minutes, and it started right back up. Don't know if the seal plugged the intake tube, or if it was a piece of dirt, ran fine the rest of the year. I know on automobiles there is a sock on the end of the pick-up tube, not sure on boats, might just be a flat screen over the end. I have to do some research. Denny.

    We have a Batteries Plus here, their stuff is always fresh. I deal with them for all of my battery needs. Denny
  10. I'm am and have always been a trailer boater. For me the wind and currents are my friends and over the years I have learned to use them to my advantage. 99% of my boating is alone, I have tied up to many different marinas and docks, so when approaching I look for the least point of resistance, because I figure that there will be no one there to help me. So you have to ask yourself, how comfortable am I with my girl, in tight situations. Can I go out alone, and do I want to. Or do I always need someone with a little knowledge of what needs to be done to help me get back in, in this case is your wife. Me, I'm a people person, a I love talking to people about their adventures and asking questions to gain knowledge of things that I know nothing about. In your case, who's who in your marina. Who knows what doors it may open. As I see it your biggest headache is docking, everything else is secondary. Besides i think that you are a people person to some degree, otherwise you would not be on this forum. I know what I would do, or not do. Denny

    Call the boat junk yards if you are looking for the original,and as old as it would be, it may not be in the best of shape. Chap did not make the original, it was sub contracted. You probably could have it duplicated. Denny.
  12. Getting the repairs done is no problem, any good canvas shop can do that. The only problem is not getting a perfect color match, sometimes you can only get it close. If your tear is along the seam, sometimes you can restitch it if the fabric is still good. If you have the tear restitched, it will narrow the panel at that point. Have them restitch the full lenght of the seam, that way it will hide the repairs, otherwise the repairs will show up like a bump in the seam. Denny.
  13. Call me old school, I believe nothing that I hear, and only half of what I see. The last flu shot, along with all the others that I had was 56 years ago when I was in the Army. I'm with cy, I will deal with it, if and when it happens. A friend of mine once said, that there isn't an ill wind that doesn't blow someone some good. So who do you think will profit from all of this? Denny.

    Winter Battery Care

    I was working and needed a tool to do the job and the guy handed me the tool, when I was finished I told him that this must be an old tool. He said why, I said because it works! Denny.

    Winter Battery Care

    if you by what they are making today, they are junk, you can tell by reading the reviews. You can buy some good ones for 50 deer, but I bet that they are still not as good as what they made back in our day. denny.
