Engine goes back in for the second time tonight. So far this year, I have about 30 minutes of on water time.
Just OK for me. I started the season in January and ended it a couple of weeks ago. right now I'm getting a head start on winter maintenance.
Weathers been decent so far ...been out 19 times. Last year only 13 times all year so this is GREAT
You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.
Yea the forcast is a little cool for July here but should be a decent weekend .
Sat Jul 31 Sunny 88°/67° 20 %

Started the winter paint project too late and it ran into boating season. Get it out late May and had fun for a few weeks and my little hod rod trusty dusty small block (not anymore) decides to put a vent in the oil pan. Had a 548hp 502 sitting in the garage that was supposed to be a end-of-season swap. Since the 502 was just a carb to pan long block, I had to spend a lot of time on e-bay and in the classified section here. Brackets, accessories etc. Very close now, just waiting on my CMI tails to splash it. A week hopefully.
Oh and.... I posted my as5 off in the tech section duing this swap. Thanks to all who have answered my questions.

Summer? I work 6 days out of the week, and have to do normal stuff on the day I dont like mow the grass, chores around the house, clean out the truck, etc.
Did accomplish a little "tune up" on the boat a month or so ago (engine out, tank out, basically everything apart and cleaned or replaced)
Hope to get out saturday afternoon.
It has been the Summer of Mitch 80 hrs to date, not one problem to keep me away from the water, clean bilge, it has been great, There are always a few things to do during the week....like boat more. Now the gas bill on the other hand...over $100 a week and more on the weekend makes it a little tough to run 4500rpms but 3500 gets me there and short bursts are ok. Overall, no wife or kids keeps me in the pink I live 1/4 mile from the ramp and lake MI so I can be on the water in 15min, one day in 10

Definitely had better here. Started out looking to be the best summer yet, but................blew another outdrive on memorial weekend, followed by a bad motorcycle accident. Then when I get almost well enough to take the boat out, both my outdrives were stolen two days after the bad one had just been fixed
Now I am dealing with insurance to see what we can come up with Hopefully and a big HOPEFULLY I will be running again by the Lake Ozark Shootout
We'll see where this takes me. At least I am here to be thankful that I survived the motorcycle accident and the women have been real supportive
I'm with Cord, Spent more hours under the hatch than in the water. Ready to swap it for a pair of golf cubs!
