Default break it out!

Looking forward to this weekend ! Finally warm weather to start working on my 3000 to get it ready to dunk it in the water. Rough up the bottom paint for a light coat, put everything back in it and put a couple of coats of wax on it to make it look pretty! I'm ready.

I've moved so I'm now an hour and a half away from where the boat is and then when all is done and the boat is in the water up the Illinois river for about 100 miles and 2 locks to get to my new marina. We have had our spring rain so the river is way up so that means telephone poles and everything else in the river to deal with.

Gosh... I really can't wait!

Roger

How close to home will she be after you get her moved?

Sorry to rub it in, but here in Florida, we've been using the boat all winter. 😁
