looked at it and started wondering why I started the project when it was a perfectly good running boat before

Picked up the boat from Quicksilver arts last night had him put some CF numbers on it with a little bit of pinstriping on the scoop

Your green boat reminds me of one I saw in Hot Boats magazine. The name of that boat was "Money Sucker". He had inlaid hundred dollar bills in the very back on the floor. It was gorgeous just like yours, gorgeous.

Being a procrastinator sucks! :banghead:

Leaving for Laughlin in the morning. Pulled the boat out for the first time since last August.
Put steering wheel and rack back together.
Washed, lubed, check for leaks, made sure water lines were tight, charged battery ... I'm tired.
Still have to wax and polish and pack  :P.

Thought I'd pull the loader from the Canyon and check it out since it hasn't been out in 20 years. It had 1/4" stainless bolts in it...... I got 2 out. The other 2 broke the bit on my impact driver. Wound up drilling the heads off to get the loader out. Vise grips did nothing on the first one but make a mess of what was left above the surface, so started drilling a pilot so I could drill it bigger to thru bolt it. You know what happened.  :banghead: The ONLY good part about that is it's one of the pads I can get to from the backside to drill it out..... with a right angle drill. The other bolt I drilled a pilot, collapsed the threads and got it out.
So I now have three 5/16" holes to thru bolt it, and waiting on a right angle drill head and pilot bits due in tomorrow. Doesn't get any better than this..... :sly:
