Friday took Anytime out on Lake Erie, Saturday took my Dad's boat out with him for his shake down ride. Sunday, ran Lake St. Clair and Detroit River met, Dad and brother at Brown's on the Middle channel for a bite. Found out one of my exhaust tips had rotted through and was starting to leak into the bilge while out.

Monday removed all 4 tips and inspected any damage to transom.

Saturday Mrs. Ghart and myself spend the day getting ready for Sunday, when we had a smaller crowd this year, only 30 family & friends throughout the day.

Monday morning we cleaned up from the Sunday event.

In the afternoon we finally got to taking the shrink wrap off the Formula.

Took most of the day to get the boat free of the plastic, washed it. Started to apply some Race Glaze, great stuff by the way!

Engines started like they were run just yesterday!

Filled the water tank and pumped the pink stuff out of the lines.

Reinstalled the Bimini after the arch was well waxed.

Renewed the bird deterrents in the guide poles. They really work guys. You can buy 500 foot red & silver mylar from any wine supply site. They are used primarily to keep the birds off the grape vines. Very cheap protection from bird ornamentation!

Didn't get out Monday after the work done on the boat, needed to rest after all the activity of the weekend!

Weather looks to be wet & chilly until Thursday. We plan on making a dinner run to one of the multitude of waterfront restaurants near the house then!
