Serviced every year. On a 238 trailer. I've never even been invited on a boat like this. I'll be happy when the numbers are on and it's mine. I really love drag/hotrod/daycruiser type boats, but I'm 49 and so is Momma, we have adult kids, and eventually we'll have small persons again (not soon!), so I decided something deeper with a windshield would be better. Momma and I grew up on the water, and I really miss it. I've been hitting it really hard for several years now, and circumstances have put me where I can do this, so we're gonna give it a try. When it gets legal, I'm getting a new cover and an (ahem) upgraded stereo. Eyeing some groovy new style trailer mods to flex my fab skills too. Thanks for asking. Hoping to go to Beaver Lake/Table Rock/Pomme de Terre Lake later this year.


Looks like a petty racey boat to me. Should be fun.

Yeah, I don't know. It sounded like the paperwork has to go from the dealer to Helena and back to the county. I had to make damn sure they got the right county because our address is one county but we actually live in another county. The nearest PO is in the next county.

All I know is the car dealers are or were sure doing a lot of business in 2020 despite all the pandemic nonsense.

Re: What did you do today not on your truck...

OK, slightly amusing, and any time you want to stop reading because your eyes glazed over, I will understand.

Had to call the dishwasher repairman, through the store I bought the dishwasher from. Washing dishes for a week, by hand, we all thought we were going to die! I went through all the troubleshooting routine, and still ended up with "clogged drain hose". Pulled the thing out from under the counter, cleaned the filters, drained the drain hose that goes to the break at the sink, etc., even tried to pull water out of the drain hose with a shop vac (that was, of course, unsuccessful). Well, the tech gets here, looks it over, takes a part out of the air break, and the thing starts pumping water out! Turns out that it's a common problem for the air break to get clogged. Since I had pulled it all down and water ran out into a drain pan, I didn't figure that that was the problem. The guy was in the house maybe 8 minutes. I wish that whatever was clogging the break hadn't gone down the sink drain. There is a filter, well, more than one, in the bottom of the dishwasher, so I'm confused on how anything could get up there to clog it. Then again, I found unpopped popcorn kernels below the filters. Something is amiss in the filtration system. I'd like to go look at a pump diagram, but I'm betting money that it looks like the insides of an automatic transmission, with looks like magic, anyway. If water wasn't such a precious commodity around here, I would just take the dishes out front and hose 'em off. Then again, maybe I could leave them in the back yard where the dogs can't reach them and let the neighbor's rats chow down. Then take 'em out front and pressure wash them. Plastic bowls blowing down the street, where they belong!

Thanks Leon and Boog! I hope it's as fun as I have built up in my head.

Beautiful! That thing is breaking the speed limit, just sitting on the trailer.

Re: What did you do today not on your truck...

That's an SPX. Mine's a 225BR. Same-ish boat, mine's Slightly tubbier. If I was better at it, I'd put up a pic. It's wrapped up in storage right now. 6" or so of snow in the next 5 days. Ugh. Thanks for the pic!

Dang, that's a lot of wood! Reminds me of childhood. We hauled it in a 67 Camper Special, 327/TH400.

I'm kinda obsessed with firewood . Right now it windy as hell and about 21 house is a toasty 74 . I have electric heat and I would have to sell off a few trucks to pay the electric bill if it was going. I have a honey hole for wood friend owns a horse farm with about 60 acres of woods with trails . He has me keep the dead stuff off the trails and cut whatever I want to . But I mostly take dieing ,leaners and lots of blowdowns.

He called me that 3 huge oaks had been blown down so I'll be getting them in spring . I have about 15 cord cut split and stacked . And 30 in log length the oaks should be another 10 . But if the trunks are nice I'll mill it
