Anyone else up late working on boat?

Question

I sure am. I am going cat fishing this weekend with a couple of buddies. It is weird, how every year when you open your boat for the season you find a ton of things to do. By the ever growing list of post's that is impossible to keep up with, many people are getting boats ready. I can not begin to list thing's I have done to boat this week. Well, I rewired a new master switch panel. I cleaned battery cable end's and sealed. I did full tune up and fluid changes to motor, charged batteries, put new tires I had on. Repacked wheel bearing’s, fooled around with a trailer running light ground issue, some what cleaned boat (I figure going to the river does justify full cleaning) and much more I will not list. When opener comes, all problems seem to work out. Oh! I did do test run on local lake with the kids yesterday. Every thing worked out great. I think I am ready with boat, close to a month before opener this year. I am proud of that. Not every year it happens this way. Well going to head to bed and let the battery charger do the rest of the work for tonight. Good luck wished upon all who are going out this weekend.

Dream's do come true. This is America! I have had good luck buying a cheap boat and fixing up over the years. If you work twords it, it will come true. Every one who fishes need a boat (of sort's). I shore fish just as much as boat fish, but perfer boating way more. Buy a cheap boat and every year do something to it. In about 8-9 years, you will have a great boat (if they do not outlaw 2 strokes). If this occurs buy a 4 stroke for it. Good luck and hope you full fill your dream.

I thought cleaning the garage was part of the whole getting your boat ready process. You know - clean/organize the garage so you can get to the boat and get it ready for the year laugh.gif

I have a couple late nights ahead of me in the coming week. I will be picking up my new boat and didn't have them rig it for me. Really looking forward to the challenge. Could be interesting!!

Got mine home two days ago, and I've been up til 1am organizing, installing/moving new and old fishfinders, connecting batteries, cleaning terminals, oh the list goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on shocked.gif. But I love every minute of it as I'm sure the rest of you do as well. Only a couple more things left to do, and she's ready to go. I might even be able to get the boat out tomorrow, the ice is just about gone.

A clean garage is good for your hart and soul. My life seems to run smoother, the cleaner my garage is. My garage is the most center point of my house. It is my office, my work shop, my repair shop, my fab shop and my entertaining area for guests. Mostly the one's who smoke and drink (card games and in-laws). I love my garage and if you love something you treat it good. Thanks for the compliment!

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.
