Just keeping busy on a Sunday afternoon

So what kind of things do you like to do on the first nice day in two weeks?
Sit on the dock with your friends, talk about boats, and drink beer? Go fishing? Take a ride in your kayak? Oh no, there are much more fun things to do!

Like lower your tender down on the dock, set it on your best cooler and a plastic step stool, remove the small electric motor that operates the hydraulic tilt, disassemble and find a broken brush spring, look through your spare parts but have nothing like it, ask your wife to look through her assortment of 25 ball point pens to find a spring that might work, cut to fit, reassemble and fill with fluid, and have it work just fine... Like I always say, "buy a boat and have fun"
Hopefully it will last until I can get the correct parts from the dealer.

We are the only boat at the dock and don't drink beer, so maybe I will just take a nap and wait for the next project to pop up.

Hope you at least took it for a spin.

Russell: It's hard to tell from that picture but if you wanted to, could you keep your tender there for a few days/weeks? Or would it be in the way? It looks like you're on a long stretch and not a finger.

South of Heaven,
I'm tied up to a float at a state park at Cornet Bay, Washington. This float is not connected to the land with a ramp so not to many people use them. But they are great for these kind of projects. Last season I spent many days tied to these type of floats when I was doing some waxing and refinishing my britework.

The rules say you can only stay a state park dock for 3 continuous nights.

Okay, interesting. That's very handy indeed!

I was ready to leave yesterday but have developed this problem with my hydraulics for the stabilizers. LaConner Maritime was recommended to us so hopefully I can get in there early this coming week. Kind have decided to not go all the way to Alaska but just stay in the north BC coast area again this year.
