Count me in to this club! :) After all the disappointment last season, the boat ran great on the first trip out!  




Water temp = 46 F !! (Didn't have the new windlass line yet, so had to go old style and do it by hand) 

Post some pictures of your first day on the water here in this thread!!

    Shawn I keep mine inside for the winter at Bob's indoor, right by old JB's Wharf if you know the area.

    Mine comes outta storage early next week, and got a 1.5 hour cruise back up to Harrison Twp for the summer. B)

    I know exactly where that is at and live right down the street. I launch at the Wyandotte launch right next door and my marina is about a quarter mile south of there. Well my old marina (switching this year).

    Boat is in for me and had a 15 min ride that was cut short do to the wind. A few leaks from fittings, the starboard side tach is off by 1100 rep when synced.

    The one thing I wasn't expecting was how severe it list,  it list to the starboard side. Was a shock to see this. I read a few post prior to seeing mine today and looked over a few things. It's less than a quarter I'm both gas tanks, I filled the water tank (port side) and the waster tank is empty. I haven't put my equipment and belongings in yet. Got on plane quick and easy but took some tyme to dial in the engines to get synchronization. Overall still excited and awaiting my next day off to get back at it. Happy Easter to you all and enjoy the day off, unless you an unfortunate soul like myself and have to work tomorrow. At least it's only 24 hours. Lol. This is at idle in neutral. The both reset to 0 when shut off and turned back on. Still investigating.

    Tach can be pulled out and reset from the back from 8 back
    to
    4 back to 8 again 
    check
    that all wiring is tight 
    thats a heavy list to star 
    any idea on the battery configuration ?
    have one person that's about 200 stand on port and look at the list 
    if improved then there are ways to help
    if not then it is how it is

    Yesterday was launch day for me. B)

    Had a perfectly trouble free 1.5 hour boat ride from winter storage to my summer marina. Cue the music, drinks, sun, and fun! :#

    Nice!!! @JoeStang what marina is that?  A lot nicer than the ones here downriver.

    @JoeStang - I'm just around the corner form you at MacRay. We go by your boat well when we take dingy rides over to Bumpers Landing. I saw an add for a well that is for sale at your marina and was thinking about checking it out. How do you like it there? Beautiful boat BTW!

    I'm up in Harrison Twp, just north of the Clinton river at Island Cove marina. I like it alot, ad its only 15 mins from my house, so its really convenient to get to.

    I like it quite a bit, and for the money I absolutely cannot beat the view from my dock. If I didnt eventually plan on buying waterfront I'd buy a well, and I still might regardless if the right one comes up for sale.

    And Bumpers is my spot, I'm already angling for a seat license at the new bar inside. :)
