Joys of getting a job done today. Only made plans to get transom and deck replaced. I wanted to get the rest painted as well. No, there are more boats waiting and scheduled until September. So, the deck and transom (outside) are whisper gray and the rest is the old (29 years) Imron. The deck hatches are just dropped into place. I will be screwing them down and sealing. Maybe years saving money for the rest of the paint, after the console is done I think I will retire from painting.

Default Screwing/sealing tank cover.

Decided on red this time. One, had it available and two, if I or the next one to do this should be more apt finding it.

Oh yeah, back in November of 2018 I was paying $2.91 for Rec90, same pump, same station was a smooth $4.89 the other day when I bought gas for my golf cart! I don't even want to think about gas $$$ for the boat!!!
Memory dollars are cheap.

Memory thought is expensive.

Memories?

Hit the cut.

Well, the plan was to put the parts back together and clean them as I go. Got some of the caulking done. No time to caulk right now, so itís duct tape time. They are calling for 6-8 inches of rain in the next couple of days, so had to hurry.

Long trip (for me anyway) but weíre making progress. Most of the journey was on backroads and Iím glad I put the shock on the trailer.

Wow! An original “Posi-latch” I haven’t seen one of them in a while. Not since our 1977 Float-on trailer. Good ole days!

Yeah, I had to give instructions to tech that took it for test ride. I don’t think they ever saw one. It originally came with one threaded rod and a “pin”. I had the factory guy weld on a second rod and then weld the bow eye to bottom of latch.
