Default Maxum contest....

Let's see what breaks first!, and who broke it..... (i'm still at the dock fixing from last season...)

1st trip out (Saturday) we ran up and down the Patuxent River for about 2 hours. Everything worked just great, Except…… All of a sudden water started coming out from under the dash…. At first I was thinking my 1st Mate spilled something but then it dawned on me when I wired the Fish Finder I ran the wires thru the Dash and I must of loosened the Speed-Oh hose ..lol Found the hose had come off the Back of the Gauge, easy fix…
The 2nd trip was we had been out about 4 hours, in and out of a few beaches and had to Trim up and Down a few times. Everthing was working just fine. A friend was putting in at a Marina a few miles upriver and was having some trouble so we decided to give him a hand. I had never been to this marina, it has a very narrow channel and it was low Tide, I didn’t check the Charts. didn’t hit anything but did run out of water and had to Trim up to get back in the Channel. After helping my friend. He gave us the low down on how to navigate in and out of the Channel, you the kinda info that ain’t on the Chart anyway….. The info only the “Locals” know…. Long story short…..The Trim wouldn’t go Down. I had to Jumper the Solenoid with a wire, I am guessing it’s the Switch in the Throttle….

I am happy to say that I am losing this contest :-)
Fired her up on muffs last weekend and all seemed great.
Dropper her in Saturday and sat till Sunday when we finally got out for a cruise. Was out for about 2 hours and no issues at all to report.
Opened her up a few times since the lake was pretty calm and she just growled and took off (got her to 53 mph with 4 on board

I am sad to report that it is too early for me to determine if I shall win our loose this contest. LOL

Finally made it down to the marina on Sunday. Got the boat un-covered - looks pretty darn clean. Got the trailer hooked up to the truck and pulled the whole mess home without incident. Parked it in the side driveway, sat on deck, and had a beer.

I should be able to start attacking the few things I want to do and then get it cleaned up. Realistically, I'm still two weeks away from dropping Aweigh Time into the water.
