Mine should be home in a month and then I still have a ton of work to do. 2002 was the last time I drove the boat.

I got out New Year's Day, but not since. After I thought I had all the problems worked out, I decided, or rather the old exhaust manifolds/risers decided, that they had to be replaced. SO, that project has to be completed. Got the new systems from Too Old and now have to install. Maybe in two weeks.

Maybe by then I'll be healed from my kidney stone ordeal.

Maybe I'll win the lottery too.

And there goes another flock of pigs flying backwards to the South Pole for the summer.

I finally put mine in on memorial day in between storms, it was really windy but i figured i'd try it anyway The waves were only about 4 footers which wasn't too bad but every time you crashed through one the wind would blow it back over the boat. So after going out about a mile we were completely drenched and freezing so we decided to turn around and go back oh well maybe this weekend. On the bright side the gas didn't cost very much

Won't be able to use mine until the middle of June. Too many things around the house have to be completed before I am allowed to play.
