Running behind

10 posts in this topic

This Friday will be my 1st chance at getting the boat out of storage, cleaned and running. For some reason I am behind schuedule. I still want to put a radio in along with a few other very minor add on's. Am I the last one to get ready? Please tell me I am not the only one.

You're not alone. Hoping to get mine cleaned up for the season on the 2nd or 3rd.

I'm behind too. Got everything ripped apart and hope to be water ready by next weekend.

Just cleaned my garage AND boat on Saturday. Took the boat down to the quarter car wash and $7 later, had it looking good. Stopped at Fleet Farm and bought new plugs, but want to fire it up with the old ones in to burn off the fogging oil first.

My steering console is cracked and I have a new one, but haven't decided when to tackle the replacement. Might wait until next winter for that.

I went in my buddy's boat instead of mine. Barely needed to start the motor before we were into them. Could have rowed, or paddled instead.

Well friday and saturday I got it all done, radio in, started, some what cleaned, checked the trailer, need to get new boat lic otherwise it would have been in the water. I ran the motor for about 1/2 hour. I will be ready! Got the motor home out, I need 2 batteries for that and 1 for the boat, not a big issue. Milacs here I come. I am going to be fishing the north sand for the 1st time, any hints anyone?

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
