Yes this could be the last back to the boat Tuesday. We have completed most of the projects and the ones that are left can be done while the boat is in the water.
However, this does not mean we are ready to go. The annual spring cleaning still needs to be done. That is inside outside, deck and even in the closets. All the tackle has to be made ready, even though we have worked on all the reels.
The big project for this Tuesday is getting the boat ready for launch. We have not been on top of putting things away after we used them. That means when I ask Dave for a phillips screwdriver, we both go looking. We will eventually find one but it will probably not be in the tool box.
It has been an enjoyable winter having the opportunity to do many of the projects that are usually done in the spring. On each Tuesday I take the opportunity to sit in the captains chair and visualize being on the water.
If I have not mentioned anything, the Bertram has been sold. The person is someone I know, my grandson. It has been a pleasure helping him to understand ownership of a boat this size and complex. I was a little bit upset when he called yesterday. Usually he has a question or an opportunity that I have to help him with. NO, he just said ” Sitting on the boat with a beer in my hand enjoying the day”
Time to get ready to fish. See you in Leland
