Opened up more docking on the river walk. Between LaSalle & Wells. This spot is less crowsed for now.

125 gallons of fuel and we are off … Temp sensor is fixed and its about time she stretched her legs again … Before I got her she hadn’t been out of her slip in 6 years #boatwithnoname

First fair weekend since fireworks have begun that there hasn’t been fog or fowl weather. Still cool but we will take it when we can.

I think I should just remind everybody that Albert is the Chris Craft master of the universe. Now that she's been in the water for a month, I sit here for HOURS every night in dead silence with no music listening for my bilge pump to kick on just to time it. (And I haven't posted the 'before' chine waterfalls and leaks that I inherited) The bottom of this boat is tight!! I'm going to have to get a bilge pump counter because it's just too painfully difficult to manually monitor when there is probably at least 6 hours between times it runs… I might hear it twice a day (verses before when I was measuring it in minutes) … I'm not sure if I mentioned but this boat had set in the water for 10 years without ever being hauled out.

I really despise these Masonite panels and have Marianne’s old canvas to use as a template or test run. Anyone have a ’67ish 45′ with canvas that you can post pictures???

Weekend project results from polishing everything on the port side. I took off the Masonite panel forward of the rail opening, and I think I like it better open. So do they make those cable connectors (third pic) where the cable connects on both sides? Where would I get those and some more of the cable itself?

So head #2 there's absolutely no instructions with this kit. I figure we just start taking apart and find all of the pieces in our service kit and replace those? The motor runs, just nothing happens in the bowl. And what does that lever on the floor do?? (Never had this model before) … update: think we found the problem (see pics)
