    That's awesome, lot of fun with the little ones as helpers.
    Had the my little guy in the boat with me yesterday installing a new hatch lift, he was my button pusher.
    Nice job on the plate, looks good!

    You'll be glad when it comes time to clear the impeller. I used mine twice already. Once just last weekend. Picked up a little piece of wood and it was cavitating like a big dog. Pulled the cover reached in and found the lil bastard, plucked it out and went on my way. Nice........

    I personally can't get enough of the little guys helping out. If you start them early enough, they will have the confidence and experience to dive in deeper than you might ever imagine. Here's my little guy and my grand-little guy building a new circle hull from scratch. It hit the water running last year at this time.

    The best things in life aren't things!

    I used to love to get in my dads way, was the only time we ever spent time together. I spent countless hours running him wrenches and learning some great new words that got me in alot of trouble at school
