    Going to get my Sea Ray from storage tomorrow morn. drag it home and pull the TRS drive off, check, grease or change the Gimble bearing ( cv joint ) probably put a new seal on it, boot and exhaust tube, change the fluids, lower unit, trans and engine. That ought to keep me busy for a couple of weekends. The Schiada just needs the battery cable hooked up, 1 header bolt put back in that actually vibrated out the last time I ran it and a NEW OWNER !!!! Still for sale with or without power. My fuel tanks should be done this next week for the Spectra and I have been buying parts and making stuff for 2 years. The only thing I couldn't make myself was the fuel tanks and naturally the guy jacked me around for 2 1/2 months on that deal. Hopefully the price will reflect the extra time it took, the guy has a small fab/machine shop with about 8 employees and has been pretty good to me over the last 3 or four years so I don't really want to" rock the boat" !!!! Once I get those tanks back it's GAME ON !!!!! If anybody wants a nice V-Bottom V- Drive I'm dealin'. I will be able to give test drives next weekend !!!!........................... OK Enough rambling !!!!!!!

    Didn't expect another sno storm, the reverse finally puked in my snow plow truck this week also, it slips like crazy and only goes 2 miles an hour in reverse. Seems like January again, cold and damp around here for the last 3 days. Probably will not bring the Schiada home for another two or three weeks. On a good note, my guy came through on the tanks for my Spectra !!!! Picked them up today !!! The bad news is they charged me a thousand bucks. I though that was a little steep, they turned out really nice and will be fairly easy to mount and plumb but now I'm busted discusted and can't be trusted for another two weeks or so until I heal up !!!! Should have them all installed in a couple of weeks. Couldn't get highly motivated in the cold this weekend. I'm anxious to check out those Hydrostreams !!!!!
