Stairs re-built Boat in

Posted on

Stairs re-built Boat in. I’m ready for another season of sailing on Lake Fanshawe. A little late getting going but I’m ready. I’m the 2nd boat on the lake! Yes 2nd! and the club has been open for a month. I did see another member that said he was putting his boat in today.
I took mom (Aka Grandma) and Jasmine out for dinner tonight. We had Cajun and it was very good.  https://youtu.be/xU3tWQUR_3k

Siren Strip and Re-Finish.

Posted on

Siren Strip and Re-Finish. I got it stripped and that took longer than expected. The stripper said that it was to be diluted 4 to 1. After I stripped the topside that way I thought I had done the hull enough. I hadn’t… When it dried I tried to give it a quick wet sand and found out how hard the finish is. It’s too hard to wet sand. So I used the stripper full strength. That works much better!
Once the boat was dry I put the same finish back on.
It looks great! https://youtu.be/WhoRfgha2Rw

Back Home For Mothers Day

Back Home For Mothers Day. I made it back in 3 hours. Only stopped a couple times for coffee along the way. (The only 2 Tim’s along the route I take.) It was windy coming home. Small craft advisory windy. Even on the highway!
I took the girls out for dinner tonight. Pizza.

It runs! Now Pack.

Posted on Updated on

It runs! Now Pack. I got the OB going. It is running great now.
The car started making a new noise today… I thought that it was the front differential (The one with the plastic cap in it…) and decided to change the fluid to see what I could find. Nothing…. No trace of the cap or any fragments of it. Then I put a magnet in… Nothing. No bits of anything. So It’s not that.
It only makes the noise when I accelerate.
I’m taking it to Wiarton tomorrow with my toy boat. I may bring an extra tool kit… https://youtu.be/jYaeK44aSQw

Dock Re-float

Dock Re-float. It’s back in place! Just a little messing about (3 days) and it’s ready for use. I’ve chosen to only use 2 poles instead of 4 and see how that goes. One of the long poles was lost in the flood. The other long one was bent a little. Nothing that I can’t bend back with my pipe bender.
The 7.5 Johnson…. Is driving me crazy. It won’t suck or pump fuel…. https://youtu.be/4UL2xb4IhpI

Dock Wrangling.

Dock Wrangling. Just that much closer… My dock took off and I had to catch it like a wild steer. I got it on the 8th or 9th try. (You count and leave the # in the comments.) https://youtu.be/VRyIpB-TNk0
