Spring Tune up / Uncover the Boat - 3-28-09

Well it's that time - could n't wait--
but with the garage packed to the gills - had to imprvise and go the store for oil / filter for the zuke- plus antisieze about an hour or so later...started @ noonish - done by 6pm..

nice day 59 and sunny with a slight breeze..perfect


got alot done- including my book - 7ISH.
-motor running fine - started on 1st shot - New battery this year due to me leaving the key on during winterizing..opps.
-all the parts + cover fit nicely in one corner on the basement.
-it seems the cover may make it another season..can't beleive it held up through this very cold and very windy winter...not a tear and only one bungee outta 30 broke-( 15 were shot though)
- Labeled every part this year too -- should help

really enjoy this every year!
many things to do in 2 weeks to got to MD..

spooled up my new Abu 5600bcx too..

next up lights ,wiring - fuel filter..
so glad I made a loong checklist this year..

I have to uncover the boat this weekend - and it's 36 today - 20 in the morning...yikes - supposed to be 50 on Sat. fingers crossed X

almost done with the Book..worked hardcore on it this past weekend..all the tools humming - nice to have my studio space semi together again to work effectively.

plus got a new M2 diehard battery + NGK sparkplugs @ Aid auto..
and to many items on ebay -- a entire 2007 PTT unit plus bracket(unreal deal $160..) 8 lures( 2 srpo jigs 4 hurricanes) , a supercaster XL240 , an Abu 5600, 24 Tsunamis big corks from caballas, 12 more .77 cent 2.oz bucktails?...plus some other rattling jigs and a fly rattles..
outta control..

now if the weather gets better dramaticly It will get me to spring into action..

SNOW Storm - 3-2-09

We had about a foot of Snow in Ronkonkoma
-and more in SB ( 8-9" in Brooklyn)
Many large Drifts 4' or so.

Cold about 27 today and windy as ever 20mph+..

didn't stop snowing until 4pm
So glad I called in to work and satyed home with the wife.

a New PS3 didn't hurt either.( finally bit the bullet)

4WD plows the driveway again...never shoveling again..

Didn't make it to the Brentwood boat show yesterday..too bad.
Saved me $$$ that I already spent on $1.88 2oz Bomber bucktails for the season...1/3 price bargain, still bought 2 bills worth...should last me a few trips.

can't wait to hit the Susky river in ONE MONTH!! I have alot to do this month.
-still impressed that the boat cover has lasted in all this high wind .)
-prep boat
-prep gear
-pack mummies
-Staff art show prep
-etc.

should be 52 this coming Sunday--fingers crossed
