Default Winter upgrades/projects, let's her them!

Winter is here, what kind of boat projects are in the works??

I will start it off...

- Painted the bilge
- Refinishing the bow hatches
- Building a new engine hatch
- Some minor engine plumbing
- rebuilding BW trannys
- finishing up graphics wrap design for application in the spring!
- Having valve covers and air cleaners powder coated and ready for graphics to match hull

That looks like a fun project! You got a place to work on it indoors?

Doin alittle stringer repair, clean/paint bilge, full hydraulic steering, A/F gauge, oil temp gauge, some form of wind deflector, if I find some xtra money, bigger motor.
It'll be a busy spring once the snow melts.

New GPS. Garmin 4208 in the center of the dash moving the trim indicators down. Replace the old Lawrance unit in front of the driver with a small Garmin that can tie in to the 4208. Replace the worn and corroded indicator cables and pressure check the headers and pipes.

My boat's on the left. Going for the same layout as the right.
