Recommended Posts

Well I always wait till after Easter to take the covers off and start getting things together, not this year!!. Weather man forecasted, C-2” starting at 5:am and over by 7:am morning commute might be slippery but not impassable. Hmmm I do believe that this might be a tad more than I ever knew called the Onion snow.B8476077-A74B-4866-A93C-8B678BD8BEA0.thumb.jpeg.f8669fe8e6e60ccec47a7bc6f36cac6b.jpeg As you can see I have my ladder resting against my Ny boat99105777-FEDB-43CD-8377-CCD0AC5DE6A2.thumb.jpeg.6f38ab5dde8d90c3e0cf260509b0cbf6.jpeg getting a head start on things.         :lol:0077C6E2-4955-4DE5-98ED-60EFBF53F500.thumb.jpeg.ee41a94da91b4938995e079112a2e81e.jpegB83B4635-BC0D-47FD-B111-D301698BB164.thumb.jpeg.ccd1b3461593e632e221d5d66a78ac0b.jpeg

The only reason I'm not extremely PO'd right now is because my boat wiring needs a lot of work. I ordered another 6 circuit fuse block for the helm and a 6 gang switch panel to clean up the wiring nightmare that previous owners created.

 

I've never seen so many ground wires spliced together with at least 7 or 8 of the blue fold-over wire connectors. I have to fix all these connections with heat shrink connectors today, and replace other wiring while my new parts are being shipped to me.

40-60mph winds??? Holy crap that’s a tree blowing over recipe if I ever did hear of one, we had big winds a couple weeks ago and the ground was saturated and the white pines came down with vengeance, we actually had to lend my 2 generators out to family members as we didn’t loose power. So I was running around at 2:am filling gens. With fuel as they only run 10hrs depending on the houses demands, my father in laws place, he passed away in Nov. so we just have a cousin living there, and his sister who is in her late 60’s those were the 2 I had to take care of. You guys are going to have a mess till this is all over.:tmi: :flower:can happen any time now.

Don't take any more covers off. Looks like more crap coming in the end of this week as well as the next couple of days. Freezing rain here tomorrow. Oh joy. 3-6" of snow forcast for Friday.

Be checking out how many wrecks the id10ts can cause .

Where is our summer?

Actually where is spring??

Winter wants at one more shot!

Thanks for the info. I'll see if I can locate that fuse while I have the helm partially dismantled. I hired a marine electrician to help me rewire my last two boats. He's no longer in the area, so I am doing my Sabre by myself. I'm glad he taught me what he was doing every step of the way. It's paying off big time now.

Yupper more snow in the forecast for Friday-Saturday, all next week below “normal” temps ;( :puke:

 

February was warmer than March. At the rate we're going now, February will be warmer than April.
