4-19-2009 Garmin GPS 178C

Out at boaters world today and purchased a Garmin 178C GPS / Sounder. Unit looks pretty cool. Can't wait to get it on the boat and see how things work. Assuming it works as advertised I will have to add the InLand Lakes CD from Garmin as well.

April 11, 2009 ON THE WATER

Made it to the water today. Boat ran good, however, it has to be warmed up or it will not run! Ran it for about an hour today. Maybe a little longer. There is a leak some where. Next time will have to take a flash light and poke around some around the engine areas to see if I can see where it is coming from. Hopefully something obvious and easy.

April 4 Update

Well I had hoped to have some photos of it in the water by now, but the weather in OK has been crazy. 6" of snow followed by 70F weather. Anyway, with that going decided to go ahead and replace the carpet in the cabin. All of the parts came out easy except the floor. Ended up cutting the floor out. The new floor went back in with no problems. Also the side boards and bunks are back in with new carpet.

Installed the rub rail insert today. It turned out to not be to hard but lots of tedious work. Looks great, had gotten use to seeing the big gap in the corner etrusion, so to have it filled in with the correct parts is really nice. She is truely ready for the water. Just need warm weather. On that note today was 77F. Tomorrow will be 45F.
