Whaler fans!
What is everybody doing this weekend?
Any plans for whalering?
I would love to hear what everyone is up to.

Running it up and down the river, if the weather's good (a big if, unfortunately), maybe going on a more extended jaunt. Taking the kids tubing/hydrosliding and maybe skiing or tubing myself.

Of course, I also plan to make a few small repairs and improvements (install hatch lid cover, clean up a few little scratches in my teak; clean the boat).

Challenging Puget Sound's lowest tides of the year(minus 3.4ft)fishing for King Salmon which, so far, has been the best in recent years.

I'm going to bring my 18' outrage in to the evinrude repair shop. I think I have some sort of electrical proplem. It will probably rain most of the time anyway.

What is up with this site the last couple days? Slower than hell. [What's up with your ISP? Probably as his reverse DNS all screwed up. That's why the response is slow for you. Call your ISP and ask them to fix the problem with their reverse-DNS. See the META Forum for more info--jimh] Anyway, if ya read my post on SW FL that is what we are doing. Going to a beautiful beach with aqua water and drinking some coldies. Just had my big "Whaler" decals put on the side of my Montauk today and they look great, and big. Hope to see anyone from here, there! Nick

Finally putting the new rubrail on my 1970 13 Sport, my very last step in this project- and then maybe I'll sneak down to the marina and take a little illegal, unregistered test run.... I'll write my next post from the county lock-up.

As I write this, we are socked in with fog. I am hoping that it burns off tommorrow so that I can chase stripers on the falling tide. If not, time to swap out the bilge pump.

Well guys tomorrow here in sunny Puerto Rico it's St. Johns The Baptist Day. The tradition is to walk into the water at 12 midnight backwards and dunk yourself 3 times
your then supposed to have good luck for the rest of the year.

I'm taking my Montauk to the southern part of PR (2.5 hr drive) with my wife and overnight on the boat so we will make sure to take that dunking at 12 midnight.

Quite simply it's an excuse to party and have a lot of fun with our fellow boaters.

I plan on fishing for fluke and bass in Long Island Sound. Caught a nice size fluke this evening -- for dinner. Saw a 1972 21ft Outrage -- a beauty.

Soap on...Soap off.

Charge on...

Getting license (expires this month).

Generally getting ready for the next fishing trip.
Also double check of safety equipment, batteries, wiring.

Why do you need a licence?
To drive the boat or have the boat on the water? Sorry for the questions!
Does anyone else require a licence? How about you Fred in PR. I dont in the UK.
In fact I could (if I could afford it) go tomorrow and buy a 200' 50mph motor yacht and drive it while drunk at full throttle anywhere I felt like without being convicted. Strange considering I cant drive a car after two pints of beer.

All boats in Washington, and most if not all other states, have to be registered and renewed every year. That is the "license" I was refering to. They expire in June here in WA. Actual "Driver" licenses are nor required for pleasure only use. They are required in Japan where I just moved back from. I could run my 17' jet boat myself but had to have a "licensed" person in the boat. Licenses are issued there after attending a school and passing a test. Cost is about $2,000.

Cleaning two years of filth from the teak and tracking down gremlins that may appear in the electrical system when I put the batteries back in after prolonged storage.

Their are no requirements here in PR to drive a boat other then the boats Lic number.

But $2,000 bucks to be able to drive a boat in Japan is totally out of sight.......

Something like that here in the states would cause another Boston Tea Party...........

This weekend: get boat out of storage, park in front of house; watch it rain...

Actually, forecast is for fair weather. Might get some stuff done!

landlocked this weekend. Boat is at dealership. I never realized how short the summer was until I got a boat!

This a Honey Do weekend for me. Got to finish a small remodel project I have been procrastinating on.

Well, The fog didn't lift, so I replaced the bilge pump and and installed the new 28 gallon Tempo on the Montauk. Hoping for better weather tommorrow. Might have to bite the bullet and go to the lake. So boring!

Got the Pate tank installed and just before it started raining again.

Tomorrow we are having company & a small cookout so I won't be getting on the water.
Hope to get the trolling motor batteries & maybe the charger installed in the morning.

Hooray! Nice sunny day Saturday. I got the entire Mills Canvas package installed. That's flying top, windshield, side curtains, and drop curtain. That was a job! Took all day. And I had already had the flying top on last season.

After I got the last piece installed, right on cue, it started to rain! This has been a strange summer. Just a shower, so should be fair weather tomorrow.

Next, maybe get the old depth sounder transducer off the transom and yank the cables out of the tunnel.

Well, I spent the day putting carpeted bunks on the new boat lift we got this year. It would have been a lot easier to do when it was on dry land, but I love a I did it chest deep in the water. The Whaler is much happier now that it isn't resting on the keel.

I had so much fun doing the lift that I decided to put my new side rails on the trailer too...only took me 3 trips to the hardware store.

I was going to put on the Doel-Fin, but I ran out of steam...maybe tomorrow.

Went cruising on Lake Erie with my English Setter Mandy. We cruised from Conneaut. Ohio to and around Ashtabula, Ohio. The Lake and weather was beutiful and felt like cruising. Put on about 50 miles and my Currituck and the 85h.p. Johnson ran great, had a great time and even chewed the fat with the local Coast Gaurd. Regards-Jack Graner.
