    Yep, me too. Went and hung out with Rob B. and seeing his winter project, made me want to uncover my boat and start getting ready. Going to try to hit the shrimp opener, but Apr 15th seems like its never going to get here!!

    You have no idea how bad I want to get out there!!
    Need to install the espar D4 first, and swap out the lights to LEd's, and install rear deck speakers, and.....
    Went to the gun show in Palmer today and talked with Matt from Aquatech (PWS transporter) and it really amped up the urge.
    Been out back sitting in her for the last hour just looking through stuff.

    I have the itch in a big way! Have to finish wiring in my windlass and do a half dozen small things on the boat. Then time to load up and hit the water!

    I think itch is an understatement. I have the burn!

    Uncovered the boat yesterday, got it mostly ready to go, and wouldn't you know it, it started snowing. No worries though, going to Homer as soon as the weather is good enough, hopefully get some blood on the deck

    went to go pull the boat out but seen it was snowing, so ive been messing with fishing gear dreaming of all the adventures to come. I dont think that the word itch can describe it, I can only go throuhg my fishing stuff so many times

    Looks great. I can't wait to see your fish table. I'm wanting to make one myself.

    Its amazing how little can get done when you go out to "work" on the boat sometimes.
