I got a ton of work before I can get out on the water this year. I sold my old boat which was turnkey, my new boat needs two engines installed, some fiberglass work, electrical work, and trailer work. I am going to start prep work for the fiberglassing, it is on the inside where the walls intersect with the hull, shouldn't be to big of a deal. I also have some minor things to do to the engines before I can install them, they are in my garage. The electrical work is going to be the worst part I am thinking. None of the exterior lights work, I have to install some electronics, need to change out the thru-hull transducers, I am looking for a radar unit to install, not sure what route I am going to follow on that yet, I am thinking of a few options. I also need to install some new hour meter gauges. So much work to do, but this is my dream boat so to speak so once I get it going I will be very happy, now I just need the gas to do down a few dollars a gallon and I might be able to afford to take it out of the harbor.
