I sure that I am not the only one that puts off little thing that need to be fix on a boat. I had to replace a steering cable (wanted to go hydraulic but cost did me in) . While at it I fix my water pressure gauge hose, till and trim switch, clean all the gunk from tilt trim area and the gunk from the bilge. Replace a gas spring strut on rod locker ( needed that two year ago). Now I really ready to get back on the water.

On those days when you think that you do not have much to do go out to your baby and take care of the little thing..

I’m doing that this weekend. Plugs, water pump, lower unit oil, and a couple other things that been needing done. Feels good to finish it up!

It is amazing the can of worms that opens when you start a simple job on a boat. Been there done that & hope it doesn't stop! thumb

I gotta replace the bushings on my Ultrex again. I addressed the trailer clunk today, I have a remote drain plug that is stuck. I have to finish the carpet installation around the cockpit area. I have two broken windshields. The boat cover has rips in it. I bought the fabric, but haven’t commissioned the sewing part to get it done. My yard needs the leaves raked, but that’s gonna have to wait! cheers

Yeh. It gets that way.

But, the boat repairs come first. It just seems like they are always expensive.

Getting ready to replace the seals on my tilt and trim. I am tired of adding oil and having to keep a drip pan under the boat. I replaced the seals on my hydraulic steering last year. Might as well put a new water pump in while I am at the back end.

Funny how we put things off and create more work in the process.
Did get the rod box lid fixed, don't know how many time it got my hand and a few time it tried to eat the end of a few rods.
