Looks good. I will have some lead left over if you want to get some extra weight to put in your bow.

I am hoping to pull my boat out next weekend and start it up. We are Powell bound end of month.

Chad,
If you get the tire monitors, Please give us a review of the +'s and -'s.

I have looked at many different brands and am very confused if I am ok with the cheaper ones or do I need the more expensive ones.

Thanks in advance,
Joe

Replaced my footrest treads with SeaDek over the weekend. The originals did not appear factory. They were a hard vinyl diamond tread and the adhesive would slide on hot days.

Also replaced bilge blower vents. this has been on my list for a few years now, as they were cracking and breaking. Had a hard time finding them. After much searching online, came across a place called ReplacementBoatParts.com. They specialize in hard-to-find boat parts. Very fair prices, friendly and fast shipping. Anybody looking for discontinued items should give them a try.

Let me know about the lead... Given how much the 22 like bow weight, it may well be a good idea.

My memory is starting to go... boat goes to Tommy's tomorrow afternoon for a Wednesday summerization. Wish I could say I was going to get mine running next weekend, but it isnt going to happen - Daughter and Son in Law close on a house Friday, and since she is in "delicate" condition, he and I will be doing most of the moving work. Maybe a weekday evening outing a week from today???? Supposed to be 67... that is warm enough for me... not sure about the rest of the family.

One last whine... Forgot how much BIGGER this boat is than the Crownline, until it is time to wax it. Or is it just that I am getting older... a bit sore today...

Replaced all 4 of my trailer tires over the weekend.
We’ll see how the new Endurance tires fare.
The original Marathons were 9 years old and the tread looked great but I figured it was wise at this point to just do it as PM.
Will be interested to see if it pulls any different. They are E rated 80psi vs C and 50psi on the Marathons.

Off season projects so far.

Gel coat touched up where that pontoon blew in to me last summer.

Full stereo system replaced.

One of the little things I had on my list. Having a completely separate house and engine battery, I had no way of checking the voltage on my second battery short of putting a meter on it. So, I added a dual voltage indicator right next to the battery switch. Now I can check both batteries by just turning the switch on.



Still to do -

trailer guide poles. Wife liked them on our crownline trailer, and since we're towing instead of docking this year, I'll put them on.

Swing tongue put on trailer. House we're looking at has a 30' garage. I should be able to get under that.

Replace battery trays/batteries with bigger ones. Boat came with 2 series 24 starting batteries. The one being used as a house battery was toast at the end of the season. Wrong application for that battery. Will either replace with a series 31 deep cycle, or replace both with AGM batteries. Either way, I'll replace the factory trays with something bigger to give me options.

Hmmm... Interesting idea!
