Skipjack 24' Project Boat Update - November 2009

The last three outings have been trouble free.

It looks like I've finally gotten the fuel in the (80 gallon) tank
cleaned out.

The electrics and the sterndrive seem to be working ok

So I guess we have come to the end of the 'trial run' era.

I am going to start going on longer field trips and I feel that I'm now in a position where I can start taking fishing gear and tackle boxes instead of tool boxes

An afternoon cruise up the river, a game of pool and some refreshments (ice-tea) at Windmill Cove bar & grill was a nice way to wind down after working on Sat
