Put some carpet on the trailer bunks. Pad my hull and move it out of the second floor "boat shop," down to the ground to its trailer.

While all this is going on I'll also be entertaining my GF, fixing us a few great meals, and driving about 60 miles to visit a young relative in county prison.

If I get the urge to go a'huntin' I'll grab my Lumix and shoot a few pics for the collection. ;) I've been wanting a shot at Rocky, the racoon who lives somewhere on the property. He might be under the hot tub or he might be in the derelict runabout, up in the bow. I feed him scraps the cat (nor I) will eat. He's getting a little too friendly, though. A few nights ago he tried to follow me back into the house. :)

Bought a new boat today for my charter business. She's 7 years old, only run 50 hours, kept indoors in rack storage, and serviced once a year by certified mechanic. Got all the records, etc from the original owner. Looks showroom fresh and I stole it. There are great opportunities like this in Florida if you are watchful and have cash. Many people retire here, buy a boat and never use it. Maybe Momma doesn't like it, or the grandkids stop coming, or they have a bad experience. Anyway, I'll be giving her a deep cleaning and a fresh coat of wax. Other than that, there's little to do.

Fri - umm, that's now - just finishing off my third report for the week. Another hour or so... should be done by lunch time.

Sat - cleanup. junk throw-out time, probably do some project car welding too

Sun - Yahoo... pick up the new boat and engine. Bring the engine home to play with, take the boat over to Bazza's or Steve's to finish off and build a trailer for it.

Somewhere in there, gotta tell the wife I've bought another boat......

SWMBO and youngest offspring are at a swim meet.
Eldest offspring will be watching her cousin at women's Uni Rugby.
I will be burning some more 6011 and 7018.
I might cut a big dead ash firewood tree.
I might also put some .22 longs into some targets.
I will definitely be getting dinner for my own self(often involves ordering pizza and buying beer).

Ha!We've got two,as well as a pile of steel.
I'm learning from my friendly neighbourhood weldor/fabricator/machinist who's about to retire and doesn't want to leave us hanging.

Make sure you put those 6011s in the right way. Put 'em in upside down and you got 1109s and they won't work fer sh!t. ;)
