Sorry, I have missed letting you all know about the progress we are making on getting the boat ready for the season. A lot has happened in the last two weeks.
The boot dryer is off and we are in the process of filling the swim platform and stringer. It will probably take at least three weeks for this to be complete.
We have almost completed redoing all the reels and getting them into working order. I have just placed an order for more Daiwa and penn reel parts that I needed to complete this project.
The battle of the forward bilge pump is almost over. We have removed the old one and are in the process of installing a new one.
We have a lot of cleaning to do. We have prepped the hull for wax by using a vinegar water mix and then a cleaner. It seems the vaccum is working all the time in picking up working scraps from the various projects.
Our launch date is the week of May 5th so we are getting close. More to follow
