Tried to tinker with my boat yesterday; marina operators couldn't even get the lift into the boathouse because of THE 2 INCHES OF ICE STILL ON THE GROUND!!!!!........Sh!t!!!

I will be installing my amp tomorrow on the 197.

I will make sure to post pictures Saturday night

Maybe even a youtube clip of me jamming out !!! :headbang:

no fishing though, I'm sure I'll get the 197 wet in the end of March

I helped captain a 38 foot bertram to the stream Sunday. Met the guy at the dock at 2am, piloted out to the South Ledge, trolled for 4-5 hours without a knockdown, steering goes, pump up hydraulics with new fluid, troll some more, engines start to overheat, fixed belt, engines back on track, trolled for nothing, listened to radio complaints of no action, bottom fished, loaded up on Triggers, some nice bottom dwellers (blackfin on squid bottom rig) and a keepable grouper (can't recall the name) started to head back, port engine goes hot, try to fix it to no avail, limp back on one engine with a rudder that is like it's on an elastic band, get back to the dock at 1am and drive home.

Yikes! I guess you had a fun day down in the engine room on that trip :shock: At least you got the boat home without a tow :D
It doesn't sound like that Bertram's been getting much in the way of routine maintenance and TLC.
Next time that guy calls for a hand I'd ask him if all that stuff's been squared away. If not, I think I'd stay home and organize my sock drawer or something.

P.S. Being on "big boats" sure does make one appreciate the simplicity of the little Cape Island sometimes

That is one reason why I don't own a big Bertram :lol:
