So I've attached pictures of what we have for gauges. the ones on the left we don't need anymore because it has a different motor on it. The ones on the right we would keep the speedometer and the tach. We're going to cover this dash up with a piece of new aluminum, and right now we don't really need new gauges… but in the future if we wanted to go to something matching or vintage would they be the same diameter? I don't want to cut holes in her new dash that might be a different size then our final gauges. #rocket

Well, the adventure is officially over, Marianne finally got hauled out and put away

Well, the adventure is officially over, Marianne finally got hauled out and put away… she’s 58 years old and had 18 months of continuous use (probably around 8,000 miles total), 20 states, 5,418 miles around the Eastern US doing the Great Loop, hundreds of trips up and down the Chicago Rivers, she never missed a beat … I keep saying she’d been waiting all her life for that experience! But it’s time to let her have a break and get some well-deserved rest and maintenance!  All systems shut down. No immediate surprises below the water line. As was pretty much expected.  Spring will be more impressive. She will be show quality and ready for more adventures.   #MissMarianne

Gives the boys something to do on a nice day

Gives the boys something to do on a nice day

A boy his Feathercraft and a Kansas Sunset

Kansas sunset … And yes that’s his new boat with his feet sticking up… Cleaning out all the old unused wiring.

Rocket is going in the water

Of course the first day above freezing it has to go in the water

Headed to Pick up Rocket

He’s a happy boy!! 1956 Feathercraft. Heading back home, only 1,100 miles. I haven’t been above freezing since Texas. Crossed the Mississippi. #whatshouldwenameit #lovehim #merrychristmas
