2nd weekend on water. Replaced the almost new attwood fuel hose that may have drained my fuel tank with a new quick sliver fuel hose. No sign of leakage.

Tachometer falls to zero at 3/4 throttle. Emailing Mfg trying to figure that issue out.

Got an email today that the bases for my couch are arriving tomorrow. So hopefully in another week or so I'll have all the seats in place.

It's been a good almost 2 months now on the lake. Finally got the boat to mechanic for the first real engine maintenance in 10 years :rofl

So last weekend was the first without the boat. Hope to have it back in the water this weekend.

It's been a great summer of boating. When winter comes hope to work on some winter projects/improvements.

My wife really wanted a pop up changing room. We talked her out of it with the promise of one of those portable pop up changing room tents. And she really did like all the extra couch space it ended providing. Well the pop up tent did not meet her fancy.

Taylor made makes an end lean back seat that would be just what we need. (but my word they are proud of it at $850+). Sure wish there was a similar option in the deckmate lines (with a more affordable price). :prayer

Every woman I've ever known can easily slip out of a bra or bikini top while wearing a T shirt. If she wears a one piece, just have her go to the back corner of the boat and stand in front of her with a large towel to block the view of others on the boat!
