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..

Have been working hard for the past few weekends to get the boat ready for the MD trip later this week....

rushed everything together and managed to get to the Water by 2pm..
------------------------------------------------------
- low @ 3pm
- wind NE @ 15++
- Air 64 --NICE!! Big Blue Skys.
- Water 48 @ the ramp
- Water 45 @ the entrance
- Water 39/40 @ Cranes
-----------------------------------------------------
I was not really in a hurry when I got there because I had had a Warning from a friend that the channel by the Game **** house in dangerously low..around 6" @ low tide....Really??

Last year it was bad..maybe a foot--but I could still get out.( 9" draft)
So I packed everything up- after talking with a nice guy and his sons @ the dock..and went towards it...

by the time I could see it... it was too....late... the sand came up too quickly and there was just enough time to get the motor up and outta trouble....S L I D E__________I was gounded..softly____________
Had to wait an hour and a half ++ just to get her loose...yep it WAS 6" of water...called my friend and he came down to see..the ENTIRE channel @ that point is 6"..

I just laughed as I went to get the W A D E R S....in my haste ,and perfect plan..they were still in the truck..nice. laughed. and enjoyed the day...so far a perfect shake down cruise..SoI just put together some new lures, rods, reels tested them while I waited....finally and slowly.. she started to inch towards the other side ( 3')but the wind was also sending me towards the jetty/shore....So I threw the anchor just over the rip( took a few trys)...and pulled myself to freedom..
______________________________________________________________________
headed to Cranes--only 2ft of water by the meadow..but seemed deep in comparison..Every segull was @ cranes - just floating in big packs..waiting for ????

shake down cruise complete -- headed back in
-5:50 upon return the channel was now 2ft..

done @ 6pm.

no fish yet..

Good luck to all this Season.
