So, I have had to cancel so many times, I forget how many times I have tried to go lol.

So, was about to go to Port A last weekend, but the friggin bilge pump died... was dead.. who knows. I was updating the Garmin. I got a low voltage alarm. I was bored, kicked on the bilge to take out some water I had seen there and "blip!"... short.

Tracked it down. It turned out the 17yr old aft bilge pump was shot/seized. Well, after 17 years, I guess it is allowed to do that lol.. but, no larger pumps local so.. cancelled the trip. Was not going to haul it down there without a pump.

So, did research and went on Amazon and got a 2000gph Rule to replace the 1700 Attwood.

It arrived the next day. Replaced the pump as well as the float and all I need to do now is install the 15amp fuse, vs the 10amp that was there.

I have a couple mud dauber wasps that have taken up residence behind the captain side cockpit panel so.. sprayed the living [censored] out of the gunnel, fogged it a couple times, next, going to put a blower up the gunnel to drive them out heh.

Anyway.. heading to Port A on Saturday. Since Snapper season starts Monday.. I broke down and decided to stay till Tuesday evening.. heh. Not to worry, I kept the following Saturday night slip reservation too :P

I do not care if the boat runs or not now.. by God I am going fishing this weekend lol....but.. I think I have it ready, minus the wasp and the fuse :P

I will. Man, never thought planning a trip would be such a pain.. heh...

So, now wife wants to go, this weekend...but only one night. One buddy bringing his boat as well, plans to go at least two nights. Another buddy has to be back Monday.

I have off Mon & Tues but do not care to be down there by myself so.. lol....

And then, was planning on going back the following weekend... albeit I have a friend down there that said I could leave the boat at his place for the week so there is that.
