After getting most of the stuff back on the boat and stowed away, Anchor Girl got the inside of Boogaboo all spiffed up and I got the heavy grime off the outside. Now all I gotta do is get both engines to go into forward gear. D'oh!
Well, at least the new dinky motor is running well and performing as expected. Just couldn't wait get it on (the motor, that is) and try it out. Unlike it's owner, this thing is very quiet and smooth running;
The crowd gathers down by the river to see all the exciting action;
Graham & I checking our portable radios. Funny thing was that if I got into trouble, how was the radio gonna be of any help :-)
As I wanted to see how the motor would perform with two people in the dinky, Anchor Girl 'volunteered' Sonia to go for ride with me. The result was that the thing gets up on plane with no effort at all - just what I was after. In fact, much like it's owner, I had to actually back off the throttle to maintain control;
Saturday night's fire. Alas, nobody wanted to stay up with me at the fire much past 10:00. Seems all the excitement of the first weekend might have been a bit much for everyone. Or something like that;
The very first official sunset of the 'On Water' season. I'm certainly looking forward to many, many more of these. It's gonna be a great year. C'mon FRIDAY!!
