Working today. Sea trial on a repower we completed. This one's kind of neat for me. Same model of boat I once owned. Took out 250hp Detroit 8.2 l engine and replaced them with Cummins 380hp 5.9 engines. 

Photos to come later. 

You all have fun and be safe.

It’s been pretty busy already. Friday I took the day off and we picked up the grandsons and went to Knotts Berry Farm.  This morning it’s the whole grandkids fiasco of breakfast. In between installing a new faucet, electrical outlets. Next up will be the garbage disposal. After that I’m going to have a one on one with a gopher that building a freeway in my back yard.  We’ve got Silvia’s son coming over Sunday for his birthday. Smoking some Tri Tip and ribs for them. With a Knotts Boysenberry pie for dessert.  Everyone have a safe weekend.

how much do you need to remove? I ask because im ready to do my floors.i just figured open the 2 main slides,disconect some plumbing from the island counter then unscrew the island and stick it the garage part along with the couch and 2 seats from table.ones that's done just pull up the carpet and vinyl floor and that's about it.im planing on doing a full vinyl sheet from Lowes or home depot.my buddy just did the 12x12 stick down tiles and just in a few months hes guessing sand has got under a few and thay are lifting in the corners.i think sheet is the way to go.

Fine tooth combing and detailing my 2011 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited. Putting it up for sale hopefully this evening. Don’t think it will last long and I need to make room for the Gladiator so it’s got to go. 
I normally keep it pretty spotless, especially for a Jeep, but my last ride was out across the desert with NotARubicon and 70 other Jeeps. Had my doors and we went through several miles of talcum powder dust. That Crap is in every nook and cranny, even after having taken the leaf blower to it four or five times. 
Sure going to miss ol girl but I think the Gladiator is going to be a much more comfortable ride for this old body.

well I went around shopping for a New sxs.. Just looking at this point but drove to 3 dealers all the same Dealer markup BS. The SAME 2021 XRS RR Max that I had a few friends buy back in Nov for 36k OTD is now 40k OTD.. I was like Thank you but NO. One dealer told me well we are only doing a 3500 dollar markup and NOT 6500 like other dealers. I understand that this covid BS has everything messed up but geez..So ended the day taking a walk through the neighborhood when it cooled off..

Went and looked at motor homes/toyhaulers. Looked at 5, crossed 2 off the list. Bought a 400ex for my son/spare for me when my 250r  is down. Grilled up some steaks and veggies last night. 10 hours OT today.

Give Florence Motorsports in Oregon a call. They are great to work with. The problem is there's no inventory and the demand is high. It's probably going to even get worse as the plant in Mexico caught on fire yesterday destroying a lot of cars.

The pricing is going to get worse too.  Can Am had a fired at their plant in Mexico that cooked several units.   If you don't mind driving the dealer in Lake Havasu was much cheaper than any of the local dealers.
