Looks like we have a break in the swell this weekend. Anyone else heading over to Catalina? Iâ??m taking the Horndog out Saturday afternoon with a couple of friends to see if we can get into some of this squid. Maybe some hooping, but definitely some fishing and just plain all around good fun.
Iâ??ve been working on the boat for so long now I just have to get it out on the water. I have finally got my hydraulic lines hooked up for my top station and autopilot. Just finished my new cutting board equipped with drink holder and all. With a little insight and info from Mark Wisch I am almost done with a battery compartment in my Parker that will be the home of 4 six volt golf cart batteries. Waiting for the weather to warm up a little so I can finish up the fiberglass work. BTW thanks to the Allcoaster that pointed me to bestboatwire.com. I saved half on the wire, breakers and switches I purchased.
I heard Mark on the radio last Saturday. He is going to have his Parker at the Fred Hall show in March. Mark was gracious enough to take me down and show me some things on the boat and I would recommend every small boat owner check it out at the show. He has tons of great ideas and he has set his boat up very well.
Anyway lets go get some squid. Give me a shout, I'll be on 72
