    Oh, way cool! Are the hawks real territorial... like do they dive-bomb you if you get too close?

    Happy 4th to you, Tim.

    I have not been attacked yet....
    They are 40 feet up there...
    She's eyeballing me though when I have the binoculars out.
    Waiting to see the little ones take flight.

    Lovely looking boat you've built there. Bimini's are ugly but skin cancer is one of the worst cancers down under....................

    You can build a sun screen using timber - though it is time consuming & complex!

    We were on the water by 5:30 this morning, and back to the ramp with our limit of Walleye by 9:30....
    Fish are cleaned and I am chilling for the rest of the day.

    Lake Erie was like a sheet of glass this morning...
    I was able to really let Sisu run for the first time...
    With myself and a 3/4 tank of gas I was running consistent 20 mph.
    This is with my Solas 11 x 9 prop.
    Came home with one walleye, but still a great vacation day.😎

    Great day fishing on Lake Erie yesterday...
    We got 8 walleyes... threw back a few 5-6 pound cats...
    Went out in 1-3 foot waves... headed back in once the wind kicked up and waves were building up in to the 4 foot range.
    I'm really enjoying getting to know this boat...
    Coming back in at 3800 rpm and about 10 mph was a nice, comfortable, but not too slow ride...
    There's no reason to run flat out all the time... she is quite happy and capable at the slower speeds too.

    Only came home with two fish yesterday.
    We ran straight out to 75 feet, ...about 12 - 13 miles I guess.
    I let my friend take the wheel to bring us back in....
    It was a great experience to sit back and enjoy my boat from the passenger seat.

    Lake Erie... just off of the Grand river...
    Trolling with dipsey divers.... orange and copper spoon is a good producer lately.
    56 feet of water.
    There will be lots more coming in as the weather and water cools.

    Fishing has been kind of slow lately, a couple of weeks we got skunked on our Saturday morning trips.
    But the water has been cooling off so fishing should improve...when we can get out that is.
    Rough water and cool water temps don't go too well together.
    So in the meantime I have been working on getting brakes on my trailer...
    All new electric brakes to work with my Ridgeline for now...
    I ordered a '23 Ford Maverick to replace the Ridgeline....
    It is a bit smaller, and rated for 4000# towing, so I felt brakes will be more of a requirement with the Maverick.

    Nothing big happening on my boat right now but the conditions on the great lakes is pretty wild....

    Storm to bring 20-foot waves to four of five Great Lakes; freighters batten down (yahoo.com)

    I will be in the garage....thanks.

    Hi Tim, My Ninigret is nearing completion, it has been a challenging two years but we can see the end.
    First, my sincere thanks to you for posting throughout your construction. I cannot tell you how many times I have gotten up out of the moaning chair and returned to the house to sit at the computer and see how you did it! Mr Atkins left a lot to the imagination!

    Second, I have a cradle that I built for the construction that I will have no use for in a few weeks when the boat goes on the trailer. It kept the boat level and plumb and is low enough so that getting in and out was not a challenge. It is free to anyone who would like it. I am on Cape Cod.

    Thanks,
    Jon
