More Spring Cleaning & Boat PRep 4- 9/10 - 10

Such a Nice Nice weekend to do more boat prep and cleaning
63 Sat
74 Sun
both bright and sunny days! Sunday was perfect!

Bought some Nevr-Dull and went to town on the SS all over the boat especially the Steering wheel which has had a rustly- spotted base for 5 yrs now - took awhile but it's 95% shining

Used the hull cleaner again and did the casting platform in/out..it's WHITE again!

fixed some big chips in the hull @ the stern as well

continued to collect items to put together in the basement so I can norrow down what to take...(gotta find that check list from last year - thinks it;s in a sketchbook)

also moded a replacement rod that I got just for this trip...used the same one last year ( lasted 2 year before showing fatigue in the eyes - $40 shipped to replace is worth it)

cleaned and cleaned - fixed lawn hose as well since it had burst over the winter(maybe next year I should put it away!)

a great weekend!

Easter PTT gauge & Paint deck -------------- 4-4-10

Had 2 hours this AM to get yet a few more things done on the boat..

PTT console Gauge
Paint the 2yr old abused deck --
10am - 12pm
------------------------
air 65 - wow!
wind s @ 5
------------------------

The gauge took an hour as did the painting.. PERFECT>

the gauge was a $13 used ebay special..hopefully it will work as I am not sure that this is the reason it's not working..worth a shot @ only $13 bucks..we'll see..

the deck painting went well.. even thought the paint had a 1/4" thick skin over it...( this is the last of this paint. ued it 3 x in the past 4-5? years -- a good deal for only a pint of paint..maybe next year Grey?

I didn't even get any paint on me ..? not sure how I ended up clean

Such a pefect day..done right on time to hide Easter Eggs --200 eggs.

got home @ 9:30pm to finish removing the tape...looks good - ready to go!

all the trees are bloominng now..Spring is the best!

New Gas Line fix 4-2-10

Rushed home after work -- only had an hour before sundowm ( 7:22pm)
to try and get my new gas line run.

atleast I was going to start the project..

__________________________

air 62 - very nice days ahead - today /sat/sun/mon - cherry blossums bloomed in 8hrs on 4-1-10...
wind 5mph
clear skys
_____________________________

home @ 6:30 - changed clothes and was done in 45 min!!!!!!!!

used a 5/16 dowl to clamp the old line and new line together to pull to run the line through the hull...worked the 1st try and was out in 20 seconds or less..sweet... the old line was dry rotted badly...

the rest of the job was straight forward..
expect...I left the bowl for the fuel filter open --so when I went to fill it with gas...it went all over,,.. had to use pliers to tighted it..

then when I had everything together -- sqeezed the bulb---gas flowed right throught- nice-- but the new connection to the motor is incorrect--so more gas squirted everywhere... put the old connector on until I get the exact match to the new...

all in all a great success!

should be test running tomorrow and I will still stink like gas too!!
