Default what is your boat most in need of?

As we know, our boats are a near-constant source of time and resources expenditure. What are the top things you feel on your own boat that need to get fixed or addressed in some way?

On mine, it would be the wood surround on the sunpad is rotted and needs replaced/repaired where the vinyl is stapled. Will probably be a fall/winter Project this year.

2 EOH upgrade to trailer
3 cockpit upholstery
4 a ‘better’ Bimini

right now I just want it to start!! I think (HOPE) I blew the main 90a ignition fuse on the 496. Waiting for the new one to come. After that it'll likely be the manifolds & risers

Needs more gas run through it. I got the boat I always wanted and now don't have the time to use it. My kids are at an age where sports have taken over...I don't remember having this many games throughout the weekend when I was in sports jeez.

Past that.....needs more power
