Default Winter Projects

OK, now that MOST (note I said MOST, not ALL.....so I don't want to hear it from you folks in warm weather climates ) people have all but put the boats to bed for the long winter's nap, things have gotten altogether too quiet around here.

So, let's have it. What are your plans for Winter Boat Projects?

Shrew - Dont care that Im in a warmer climate, I too think this place is becoming a ghoust town now that you in the Northern Hemisphere are packing away your boats, here are my summer to do's

1) Stereo - A good mate of mine does custom car audio, he is going to town on my boat in the coming weeks, we have sourced a two zone unit, this will allow my kids to listen to a movie in the cabin through the speakers and me to be on the rear deck belting out tunes at the same time, it will have wireless ipod docking with digital display at the helm and rear seats - I will post pics as I get it done

2) My TV antenna although new does not get great reception, I believe it is the cabling through the tower so will sort this out

3) I want to wall mount the LCD TV in the rear cabin

4) My rear staple and tender support will be getting upgraded

5) I plan to use the boat as much as possible and make you all jeolous of the lovely weather and hopefully keep you sain until your summer comes back and mine disapears

So, since you are now in the business, what batteries are you going to use?

-) Replace cabin floor carpeting
-) Steering cable replacement, new steering wheel as well.
-) Some grounding issue I need to nail down and fix
-) See if I can get the icemaker repaired inexpensively
-) New TV antenna and cabling
-) New shift cable to port motor

I hope I get at least one of these done by spring!

TOO Damn cold to do anything. Worst part of that is it is going to get much worse before it even starts to get better.

Need to move out of this arctic area I guess.
