What's on your to-do list?

As we come down the home stretch of February, I realized that even though we're stuck in a pretty good freeze at the moment, good weather is not far off. Which made me think about everything that I have left to finish on the boat before it gets warm. Surprisingly the list isn't too bad for me.

- Install/modify ballast system (Pro X 750s in trunks, Rule 3800gph pumps to feed them)

- Clearguard the trailer

Things I plan to add this year:

- Another pair of tower speakers

- Mirror arm

- Small surfboard for myself & the boy(s)

- Foil rack (probably Samson's)

- Possibly a full boot for the bimini & tower (just that top section where the bimini sits)

- Possibly a towing bra, or some sort of modification/addition to the towing cover

Things we've already done over the winter:

- Stereo

- Installed a second snorkel tube into the heating system

- Installed the LED lighting like D-GOOSE has

- Installed the Racor LG50

And of course all of the basic maintenance that goes along with it. So how about all of you?

(1) Re cover trailer bunks

(2) A more factory look for my iPod/mp3 connections,in and outputs.

(3) Complete detail and thorough going over in the garage for a couple of weeks.

(4) I have a very slightly used JL 12" W-7v3 sub sitting on my work bench that I haven't found a home for yet.

It's too big to fit in my truck and not sure if I need it in the boat yet, I'll have to do some garage tests.

Laugh it up college boy...Who's on the pick slip for the boat you use? :lol:

Besides, since the wife thinks that DD’s are on the way out and can’t get much for it, I told here therefore we can’t afford a new vdrive… So she’s stuck w/ our current one. Yahoo.gif

The person who is on the pink slip is also the person who pays for gas, insurance, maintenance, storage, and any problems....I will gladly keep my name off of there for a while...its a free ride Tongue.gif
