I hear you, but you are sorting it all out! It only gets better. Pulled the thru hulls and the core is bone dry, good news there. Your boat looks great, even upside down!

Great news!!!!!

I need to do Thru hulls but not sure I can get to them with motors in. I am a pretty small guy but tight fit and long reach even for me. May just put some sealant around them this fall until I have to pull motors for some reason.

Did some more buffing and waxing on the interior. Almost down to just the nonskid to get cleaned up and sealed.

Started fixing more Mickey Mouse shit on the boat previous owner thought this was how to splice speaker wire

Yes that is twisted together wires covered with duct tape. Because who would wast time or money on heat shrink butt splices :censored:

Then found this

Lesson learned. Ice jackets don’t go under dinette table even temporarily for a couple days to remove smell from under l shaped seat. Ran for 4 hours yesterday with no frost after deicing and getting water cleaned up
:banghead:

I do believe that I have gotten the smell out of the cabin between pumping out the head and plugging off the front bilge and cleaning it to get rid of the oil residue from precious owner neglect. Thanks MatkT for the suggestion.

Did the life jackets block the air flow? I am looking at ice correct? Where did you get the boat from? Must have been a big duct tape state! :lol:

Mark yea they must have blocked air flow. Yes it iced up the ac unit. It has been running for a couple days without ice since I put them away.

Boat came from Florida. I was so pissed when I found the duct tape :banghead:

Will be fixed tomorrow though

Oh how our love hate relationship continues.

Replaced this ground cable today for the house batter. Made a big difference :banghead:
Positive is tomorrow had to wait on red cable

And figured out why the throttle on the haunted port motor wouldn’t return to idle you had to quickly raise and lower the throttle to get it to come down

Hope to be on the beach tomorrow
