I'm also trying to mount TV and DVD player in "Chug" so we can watch movies while chugging down the lake.Wife took a picture of me napping one time.Guess going slow is kinda boring. No Titanic or Jaws movies tho! Maybe Twilight Zone as I'm there most of the time anyway

That's a bummer,folks."Chug" spent her summer in the water.Put JD Select bottom paint on a couple of years ago and she still looks good.Diddy-mo from the lake wouldn't stick.Took her out in the rough stuff a few times and know what I'm going to change on her.
Not yet.Been too lazy,I guess.Kinda cool now and skeeters would have kept me awake last summer.Boat is now on the trailer for the winter.Had to go wading off the end of the ramp as the water was low.BRRRRRRRR!Plan a few changes-maybe more enclosure canvass and less hard enclosure.
Went on last nice night chug of the season.Went up Bear creek for about 3 miles.Ran out of sunlight though so had to beat it back home.Pretty quite up there-a few ducks is all.
Theres a reef to avoid on Flag Island and a sand bar on one of the little islands and Brush Island to venture slightly in but they're threating 3/4 million fine if caught fishing or 1 million if bringing covid across.Yikes
