In less than two weeks, all my traps have been set and are baited for a long soak over this weekend.
The boat price officially dropped to $2.00 a pound and I have already dealt with a breakdown. My automatic bilge pump failed which allowed a bit too much water to rise in the bilge which then got into my starter which left me dead on the mooring. Translation, a lengthy and tiresome process to pull my starter out of quite tight quarters to clean things up. During this repair session, my cousin who is a marine engineer noticed that it was clean to replace my expansion tank.
Breakdowns are usually quite costly and I'm sure that my earnings yesterday won't pay for my repairs, but that's the nature of the game. I hope for a repair free remainder of summer and am thankful that Scott could get aboard the Ducks and Bucks before our early 4th of July weekend.
|Won't be doing this for a few days|
Judging by how my hands, arms, back, and hips feel, I certainly can use a few days off.
Enjoy your weekend,
