Out on the creek. Jimmy and I working the water ways with Becky and the Boatress bundled up

We did it. Boats are in, Faribault blankets are out, and smiles are a plenty. The water is crystal clear, the “Trusty  Van Ness W” started right up and ran like smooth as silk. It’s supposed to be around 70 ish here in Reedville this weekend, so hopefully we can get the Trusty W broken in. Man oh man, a simple 15 minute ride can clear up so much winter blues. Woohooo!

Ok, maybe its a tad chilly! And yes, thats a snake

Sunset Snake

This thing was on the seat burred between some Florida stuff. I know where it came from though, and I will just say. Paybacks are hell!We do need a name for it now though!

    Again 2 cold chicks in the back alone. 2 men in the front. Guys you’re letting the magic slip out of that relationship. Think I’m going to have to come down and keep them warm. That snake looks like it’s guarding some forbidden fruit, maybe you should name it Lucifer.

    AWESOME to see WECATHCUM in the water!

    I am just waiting for my dock guy to launch the float and Gottago will be floating in the river. Now I have to get working on American Beauty.

    Looks like Squigly enjoyed the ride.

    I love the worn steering wheel. It my favorite part on your boat. Perfectly old boat worn in patina. Don’t mess with it.

    I launched the Coronado last night and put on 3 hours on the clock, just puttzin around Spring Lake. AHHHH, I feel so much better now that I got rid of that “cabin Fever” I have had the last month or so.
    For Michigan, I have to say this 70 degree weather on April 15th is VERY RARE. So I will be back on the boat today and Sunday.

      I respect patina, but Matt, you and I seem to share the same steering wheel, and I did dome work on mine with the following result.
