Summer is on the way...

Fantastic day today, the weather is stunning.

Spent the afternoon trying to get my boat started. It's been in the water all winter and it wasn't looking good, not enough power to raise or lower the engine, let along turn it over. That was odd since I had had the battery on charge for two days.

Eventually tracked the problem down to a heavily corroded contact by the power cut off. By-passed it with an old nail and some gaffer tape and it started almost immediatly - result!

Took it for a spin out into the sound and after most of crap was scrapped off the bottom it was flying. Summer is here! Now I need to get a wake board
