Uncover the boat 2010 ......................3-27/28-10

Sat 3-27-10
Uncover the boat 2010

this has to be the coldest I have ever uncovered the boat - but seeing this is the same weekend I have done it the past few years - is time..last year it was 46 and sunny pleasant..
this year...SUNNY n cold - the sun kept me warm enough,..
-----------------------------------------
air : 38-40
wind: zero - 5mph
bright sun...nice
------------------------------------------

The structure gets better every year -- just a little bit...Labeling / notes everything help. Got it down quick and the cover has seen it's last season. looked like star light inside from so many pin holes - including a few rips and tears @ the corners..lasted quite a few seasons..but opening it up and having a pretty wet interior - I guess I should have replaced it last year..but it lasted though one of the tough winter - most snow fall since '96 ( had 28" of snow On it in one storm) only lost 5 bungees some used already..not bad.

hopefully Next year I will ditch the blue cover for a thicker reflective white cover....even though I already have another blue one..I just hate the blue..

Wife made a nice lunch for me as well..as I was running around..

this is my favorite time of the year.
Cherry trees @ work are starting to bud as well..

AD changed the hubs and fixed / bled the PTT --so now it 's 5x5 for the MD trip mid April.

80% ready for the shake down cruise...


==========================================================================================================================
Sun 3-28-10

Ran around in the AM to 3 stores for Fuel line parts...next time I will pre-order - driving around a Sunday on LI = hell.
They had a Marathon closing Nichols rd - LIE to 347 - it acted like a clogged main artery @ the heart of my town..

well it is warmer today sort of -- but cloudy - windy and rain coming -- predicted late
but showed up by me just I was ready to start changing the fuel line. filter and trailer lights...@ 2pm

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
air 40-44
wind 10-20mph
cloudy over cast and rain..( sun peaked out once @ 6pm)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

rain slowed by 4:15pm so I made a "TENT" over the trailer tail light and figured if I did some work NOW - it would make me feel like the day was not a wash..
A Good thing as I got further than expected --
all Trailer light fixed = 2 bad grounds - 1@ neck, 1 @ left turn / brake signal
- replaced entire light assembly as the ground was behind it and had to sawz all it off as the bolts were rusted on..
- neck ground broken in half..

every spring it's a new trailer light to fix...well at least the last 5 springs..

6pm Rain stopped so changed to the Fuel filter.....something that should screw on and off in 2 minutes on a Boat - NEVER DOES

One Hour + half later...
- after using a C clamp as a handle to turn it-- in came free..then the the bottom bowl was frozen on..had to Destroy it to get it off..
geez plastic threads to plastic threads are a PIA. This is the second time I had trouble with this unit..maybe next time It will take only 30 minutes..


Happy Spring

Terrible windy storm.......3-13-10

70 mph wind and 3 days over heavy rain...streets flood ed that never have before....

The worst storm LIPA has faced in nearly 20 years knocked out power to one in five customers and 50 schools, and required fill-in crews from as far as Michigan to help restore power, officials said Sunday.

Many big trees down - some killing people,,

--------------------------------------------------------------

weekend ( 3-7-10 )before was BEautiful and 55+ degrees.. so nice that I took Noelle to practice cast @ lake Ronkonkoma.. she loved it,.
no fish - but still fun for 2 hrs..as we moved around the lake to explore.


on a sad note one of my oldest family memebers passed - 3-10-10
Roland Wacker died @ 94 - RIP
he was tough and independent - was driving til 90 and sharp as a tack.
