Default Winter 2019 Project Thread

I have enjoyed reading the last couple of years of these, and every time I find many new ways to spend money on the boat (like I needed that MORE things to spend money on).

I THINK this is the third annual winter project list... so share the fun/cool and otherwise totally unnecessary projects you will be doing this winter while we wait for the lake to warm up from "OMG cold" (at least for those of us in the northern hemisphere).

Mine are:
  • Install bow safety strap (have the parts, just haven't installed yet). Blows my mind that a brand new boat didn't have a safety chain or strap...
  • Install autovent kit for my rear plug and play ballast bags. Two seasons of burping ballast bags has awakened the lazy in me.
  • Install back up camera. I am pretty sure the wiring and software are already there, I just need the hardware that will allow me to see the my surfer on the command center without having to take my eyes off the water in front of me.
  • Find or fashion collapsible steps from trailer to bow. I have already taken one fall from off the freshly waxed bow trying to get into the boat over the bow when launching). Im thinking something like this : https://player.vimeo.com/video/268032121
  • Obligatory full detail (gives me the excuse to do some driveway boating on one of the bluebird winter days we get in CO when the temp goes over 70, but it is still too early to launch)
  • Already completed : fix the big scratch on the starboard side where I had a dumb sh*t attack whilst trying to be a good samaritan). Boat is purdy once again.

I have a few things as well:

1. Fix whatever blew apart at norris on Labor Day. Mechanic thinks housing for water pump

2. Rear sun pad wood needs replaced

3. I want to add a tower so need recommendations on what one to get (266br for those that don’t know)

Will be following...

Looking for a bit of land north of me... with the idea of building a boat garage (tall enough for me to park the boat without putting the tower down) with a one bedroom studio attached. I want a place close to the lake where I can park the boat (as well as winter storage) and that I can stay for long weekends until my wife and I both retire. Then I want to sell out current house, take the proceeds and then build our final house next to the boat garage.

I have this creepy feeling that the project will be more complex than I want it to be...

Looks nice and level. How far is this from the koa where you were?
Is there municipal water and sewer availability or doing well and septic?

Since adding bow filler cushions, it’s quite difficult to get into the bow storage due to the way the bow cushions hinge. Since we never take the filler cushions out, my project is to change the way the cushions hinge so that the storage can be used with the cushions in. I have seen people take the hinges off altogether and screw some sort of alignment pucks to the bottom but I like to have the cushions attached so they can’t go flying or missing.
Other than that, we just can’t wait to enjoy the new swim platform I installed last fall.
