Wish I had pics, 10mins from the ramps and blew out a tire on the trailer. Looks like someone took a knife and ripped it apart and through it into a tree shredder. Looks like something you would have seen from a semi truck when their tires tear apart all over the highway. Next, boats navigation wiring toasted but lucky boat is A+ just wiring is damaged. odd. I never want to smell the smell of burning wire again ewwww LOL.
what you see brown is the actually copper itself and

I almost hit one on the way back from our fun run. Was RIGHT in the middle of the channel. Then once I noticed them there I kept having to avoid them because they crossed the channel.

We should have stopped and caught dinner.

Claudios was busy as usual. I left my marina in chester at 10:30, got pulled over by the coast guard for a safety check at 10:45 and got to claudios around 11:30 when it was all said and done. In about an hour they stopped taking boats in the basin. I ended up showing mercy to a couple of my buddies and letting them tie up.

I finally got the rub rail almost finished on my scarab. I have to get 22 more screws. Then all I have left is put the motor back in, drive on, and new interior back in. Almost done
