Default Went for a VERY chilly boat ride yesterday

We had the lake all to ourself yesterday. Even though it was cold, it sure was nice not having to deal with the WAFI's and lake lice (jet ski's).
We had to take it for a quick run to check everything out after giving the engine compartment a face lift. We painted the engines and floor plates, changed the valve covers and flame arrestors, accessory brackets, installed a new hydraulic hatch ram, etc.

Thanks for everything Eddie. I really like the way she turned out. In a few weeks she is headed back to Florida for a complete cockpit face lift and a couple poker runs.

Thank you, Mike, for letting me do it. It was a pretty big job, but lots of fun. I'm glad that you are pleased with the outcome. That's all that matters to me. Now go enjoy it. Talk soon.
Thank you again for your business.
Eddie

Looks great Mike! Hey Eddie, maybe it would have been a little warmer if you waited for the sun to come up! Nice work on a hard runnin' 37 AT. Interior work too? Third bolster? No Go pro video from that test run Mike? BRRRRRR!

Wait for it to come up....hell, the sun was going down. That pic was at about 5:00 pm. We was out for about 2 hours or so. I even put long pants on. It takes quite a bit for me to give up the shorts.
It wouldn't have been that bad if I could have stayed beyond the wind screen. I was worried about logs and just couldn't see them that good if I stayed behind the wind screen. Once my nose got above it, it got cold real quick. Didn't stop us from running over 90 though
Thanks guys.
Eddie

Wow the way Eddie describes the ride I wish I could have been there.

Thanks John, the interior is just showing its age and we've been wanting to update the cockpit for a few years. It already has the third bolster setup.
