I need to get over to my slip and set it up before the boat hits the water. Got into a wider slip this year... Hopefully it'll be easier to get the boat in and out now!

People been boating on the river since the ice melted. Mostly fishing boats and toon's (outboards) but lately I've seen a increasing number of I/O's out since the temps are "normal".

Drove out to Portage yesterday to start working on my boat. Surprise: opened a can of worms as usual.

tore up all the wood floor which was my intention for going out to the boat. Some dummy put in actual hardwood. Double stick tape and nailed down to the fucking fiberglass. it was so rotted i literally just pulled it out by hand except a couple pieces with excessive nails. Well, the floor under that was wet which i expected. NOT going to pull all that out, way too huge of a project. Drilled 10,000 holes to dry out the wood. Soaked it with a whole quart of acetone to help drive the water out. Coming back next weekend to fill it in with thinned epoxy. Deciding what I want to do from there though. The floor is pretty uneven and i don't think the thin vinyl plank tiles i wanted to use are going to work. I may lay a sheet of 1/2" ply over the existing floor to make it flat, or glass/epoxy over it and put non skid down. trying to keep it cheap.

The second, less fun part of the day. Rotten rear bulkhead, which is the wall between the engine and the rest of the boat. i started cutting the rotten floor sections out last year and it was a little soft when i got to it last year. The freeze/thaw of the winter must have absolutely destroyed it. i was able to push my index finger through a 3/4" piece of plywood...



took a circular saw to the spots i could reach and the rest i cut out with an oscillating saw. i have to cut all the way down to the stringers when i go back next week. theres so much rotten wood i can't get to.

really impressive to me that they're getting 1.0 mpg out of something that big at 32mph with i/o sterndrives and it'll run nearly 55mph overall.
