SB ~ Columbus Day W/ Noelle ~ 10-10-11

SB ~ Columbus Day W/ Noelle ~ 10-10-11

Extremly late report.....

took my niece out for the day for some exploring , fishing and boat driving lessons..

had to do a quick fix on the leaning post cushion bracket 1st..

---------------------------
High @ 10:56
Wind 10 NNW
Air - 83? == very warm..Indian summer.
water - 67-66
---------------------------

to the water @ 11:20

beautiful day -- perfect day for a boat ride.

stayed in back @ first for some slow driving lessons - she's only 10 but already 5'3" - geez she's grown a foot this yr..
we poked around ... saw a lone blueswim by on top and a few bait pods but nothing on them....spent an hour+ back exploring and showing her a new places she had never been + a few "when I was your age stories" about the area.

but she likes to go fast...and jumping waves....so outside we went..
slight chop to very choppy @ cranes....perfect.. started launching off of wakes...she loved it..

hit all the points and spots to the east.. tons and tons of little, micro 1/8"-1/4" Asian crabs must have hatched..they filled the water like a cloud in some spots.
the seagulls were packed up in tight formations on the tide lines on all points just picking away @ the berry sized crabs..

while we were floating through the gulls...I saw this small low in the water craft approach the gulls slowy-- thought it was a Yak @ first it was so low...geez it was a 13' Whaler with 4 fullsized adults...and it wasn't like glass out either...Now I have donw some stupid things... we all have..but this little guy was one wake away for capsizing with not on Life jacket on....we watched them for awhile...I told my niece -- we might have to practice a rescue today as well...
I felt a little better seeing them mostly underway the entire time..

as for Fish ~ didn't see much action today... a few blues and few blue bight offs...

sometimes it's just nice to be together - fish or not..

done @ 4pm..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
total:
3 Blues ( 20-24")
1 missed bass bite
millions of tiny Asians
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

-- she asked me to teach to drive a car in 6yrs...as fast as things go --- that'll be tomorrow..

80 PSI??? - NEED A SENDING UNIT?

just 2.5 more months to go with the XJ nad it's really heading down hill...

changed the oil and right after I was done -- The Oil Gauge reads 80 PSI ? now? and 70 when hot.. what gives?

It Was 45-50 when cold...to 20-30 when hot..right before the oil change

same oil and filter as before. 10w30 Synthetic / Pure one filter for 70+K

LOOKs like I hit the oil pressure sending unit -- next to the filter while changing the oil...

unit part # PS317T ( $30 ON EBAY)
