    Ok, finally got over the Anticipation and took the boat up to Lake Winni over the long weekend. For those interested:
    *Yes the trailer held up and did beautifully. I need to investigate why one tire is losing pressure gradually, but we had no problems.
    *The old truck did fine, with it's (almost) bald tires, after a visit to the shop. They replaced the serpentine belt and idler, and got rid of the buzzzzzzz.
    *This year my first mate and I were able to rig up the mast with minimal problems, no bent or broke equipment. We did as Wayne from Fays one technical question (Wayne: thanks for the help!). Boat was launched with no problems.
    *Motor, oh yes. I had taken the motor over for service, and it started right up. About half way to the mooring, it decided to act up again. I believe that we are having some gas issues, maybe ethanol issues with a 23 yr old motor? Wish I could locate a list of non-ethanol stations. Do all marinas have straight gas only, no ETOH?
    Funny story: I pulled up to the mooring facing a stiff headwind and pulled the ball, grabbing the lead and hooking it to the front of the boat. After I was sure that I was on, I went to the back, cut the motor, and noticed that the bow was turning away from the mooring ball. I had hooked the end of the secondary line to the front of the boat, and it wasn't connected to the ball. Started the motor (again, whew!) and pulled up to the ball, pulled it again and found the primary line, checked the connection to the chain, hooked it to the bow and waited until the ball moved with the boat motion before cutting the engine.
    Now to work on the gas/motor problem next week.

    That's great! Hopefully she majored in something OTHER than what we ended up doing for a living!

    Give her and your son my best

    ...Yard Sail or Yard Sale?

    For what it's worth, I bought a 1953 Lightning class sail boat a couple of years ago with the hope of restoring. I have been thinking of selling her because (insert the excuse of your choice here). She is all Mahogany with the original wood mast. Also a yard sail/sale special...TG

    My Cat-Beavis

    Good luck with your cat. We also had a cat named Beavis - he was a Maine coon cat that weighed 20 lbs and the best cat in the world. Unfortunately he got really sick and wasted away till he was all skin and bones and could hardly move. We had to put him down and although I didn't think it would bother me as much as my wife, it was horrible. I hope yours gets better!

    Introduction-Hello from Nicole

    Hi Nicole,

    Nice to meet you. It was an interesting story. As the Blogs grow I am not sure how often I will be able to read all of them. Enjoy the Lake and lose the stress.

    Have a great season.

    Dave, can one ASSUME that your rates for typical maintenance/repairs on a Harley would be somewhat less than what Meredith HD charges?

    good luck to you & your family Denis! I'll be stopping by next time I'm out that way.

    I have also just started a new "side" business. Nope, not giving up my day job, still have a few more years I want to do before I retire...but I am bored doing "details" and wanted to fire up a Company I had a number of years ago.

    In out first month we've been booked solid. But as t he dust settles I may be branching in to some ancillary side work over in the Winni area...it will be in the installation, repair upgrading of Marine & tow vehicle electronics.

    Anyway, once I get the kinks out of my website and loose ends tied up, I'll be making a splash & be pulling an Ad here with Don....

    Oops, I got sidetracked....but isn't that what blogs are for?

    Once again, good luck Denis!

    Interesting area: A milestone day in our family today

    Hi Skipper-Congrats on your daughter's great accomplishment-you both should be very proud. Isn't it amazing how fast time flies? It has been 15 years since I graduated college-boy does time fly.

    I too am excited about the blog. I look forward to blogging and reading others blogs as well.

    Less, you bought my boat. I've been looking for that boat forever. Please let me know when you want to sell it, I'll give you $250 for it, what with depreciation and all.

    Hi Skipper,

    Congratulations on your daughter Lauren's graduation from college!! I'm sure you are very proud of her and are full of good thoughts for her future success in life.

    Like you, I have never posted to a blog before so we are both trying this out for the first time.

    Again, congratulations! Quilt Lady and I extend our best wishes to Lauren on her considerable accomplishment.
