Default Getting Skater ready for FMO 2010-2011 season

She is off the lift, and on the trailer, for the first time since April 17. I have a few issues to resolve, and then it is Ft. Myers Offshore time!

First issue resolved. The STBD one lasted 18 months, this one lasted a bit over 3 years.

The boat is all fueled up and washed. Ready for another great day of boating with FMO, and it looks the Gulf is going to give us another really fine day.
