Running behind

Recommended Posts

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.

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?

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
