Got my boat out yesterday!!!! Big deal since it has not been out for 1 1/2 years and the cool part is as soon as I touched the key, that motor started right up!
I also have some electrical issues with this place on my back side of the house, like lights on my porch and lights pointing out at the yard. This same breaker also goes down to my boat shed as soon as we got the boat down just enough to get it out of the slings the breaker flipped again. So will have to get an electrician to re-do all my back deck area and will change the power for my boat shed from the house to come from my boat house sine I have plenty down there now there is no reason to bring it all the way from the house again!

So happy to get my boat out, yepiee!!!

That's great news! (except the circuit breaker, of course. but that's easy to fix; have him put the boat house on its own circuit).

Now get out there and fish!

GREAT NEWS SKIP, you got the boat trailer all ready incase it looks bad again. hehehe So glad you two are back on the water. Now to get the eletrical problems taken care of. Those are minor compared to being drydocked.
Give me a holler when you are ready to set some brush and I'll give you a hand. I'll even bring the pontoon if you have lots to set. Give me a call when you're ready. Ferdi aka Fred

It sure is good to see Toledo is up 7 feet from last Fall! I'll be there soon.

Only one problem my friend. That boat is in your backyard instead of mine. Way to go. Fish had better watch out for Skip now.

Thanks guys!

Fredi I will be sure to let you know, it will not be long as I am only waiting for my willows to start their leaves coming out and I have lots of limbs that need cutting.

Tracker, TB is up over 168.25 and rising still as of this morning so that is about 8 1/2 feet since just before Christmas. Probably will keep coming up for a week.

Ship man sorry you are without a boat! You should live closer so we could go.

Congrats to Skip, man that was a long time without a boat Ouch glad all is well now. Relatives up in Gilmer reports lots of rain as of late waiting now to see if those brow pastures will turn green hoping the cows pasture grass comes bask or they are out of business.

Thank you!

Hope they turn green Jack! I have Been to Dallas and back the last couple weeks and got to see more green than I have in a long time, still seeing the dead trees lost to the drought, but lots of green fields and lots of wild flowers Si things are getting better. This lake was down about 13 feet and now less than 4 feet and still coming up.

The fields around Gilmer should be getting green too!

Great news I've been waiting to hear, I know you're a happy boy. Pictures of fish please.

I would be sure and check the circuit breaker, that could be your problem, sure would be an easy fix. The reason I am suggesting that is that I had the same problem and a $12 circuit breaker fixed it.
