Almost wish I didn't pull it last October as winter has hardly shown its ugly face this year. If temps continue to remain mild (35-45 degrees) I will pull off the cover in early march and start getting her ready for a mid April launch. Probably not much running time on the bay but at least I could enjoy some slip time. Usual boating season around here is memorial day to Columbus day. Hell, around here, even a rainy chilly day at the marina is a better day than staying couped up inside the house.
Happy boating!!

You are waiting until March? Oh wait, I live in Florida. Joking of course, and yes I plan on being in the water in March too. Dropped mine off last week for a re-do of the upholstery and ordered some smart tabs sx for this year. Soon as she gets back to me I will install them and service it. Hopefully it will be be good to go as the gimble bearing and all boots, along with the impeller , were replaced last year. I do still have that minor squeaking noise coming from the belt/engine area, but hopefully I can figure it out before then.

Spent this past Saturday & Sunday on the boat but couldn't leave the slip as the props were sent off last week to get refreshened. Got my fingers crossed hoping they will be back next week. Saturday I did the caps & wires, checked the throttle and tranny cable adjustments, and pulled the right exhaust elbow off of the port engine. Even though this boat spent its first two years in salt water and the last 11 in fresh then risers look like they can go another 8 or 10 years. Our son has our 1993 Regal with a 5.7 Merc and it still has all the original exhaust.
