I’ve been thinking about it all day and I can’t beat topwater.

I will congratulate you on avoiding a few serious perils over the last solar orbit...
1. You didn’t become bear food
2. You aren’t orca fodder yet
3. You didn’t become decoration on the exterior of a moose
4. No Russian hit men received “the contract”.

Hopefully the next year will be as fortunate for you.

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

The flu and life in general have slowed down boat work for the past week. Speaking of work an old buddy asked me to help him out by running a piece of equipment part time for him. Do any of you guys know what it is :doh:

I'm thinking a pile driver or a drill, but looks like a pile driver.

Dang Cape Man you hit it on the head :wink: Fallguy was close too. It is an old log skidder that has be converted to work like a dredge. There is a layer of gravel about 40 foot thick under the water out in the swamp. My buddy is trying to mine the gravel in an environmentally friendly manner. He has a concrete company and needs the product to feed the plant.
Not really a boat deal but it will provide me "free" boat bucks :D

I have been bad about posting updates, sorry :oops:
I spent some of my dredge money and got new top mount controls for my Mercury. Got everything hooked up and working except the trim. Trim works back on the motor but not at the console :doh:
