It's not what I did, it's what they are doing. Getting it ready for me to pick up on Tuesday. Tinted the windshield, next is sea trial, adjustments, new bow roller and pack it full of the crap I bought along with it. Just stoked right now!!! Damn salesman is trolling me with pics. Driving me crazy!

That Yamaha Blue kicks so much ass it hurts!! Damn fine looking boat. Be sure you get to keep the shipping cover for Winter Storage in 'Sconsin.

We should all be glad the temps stayed up today. This two day rain we are getting was originally forecasted for 15" of snow!! Rain will rinse down the roads real nice.

Definitely a sweet boat! Congrats. As for me, I ran mine from “F” to “E”! Wish I could have grabbed some video of three skilled jet skiers playing off my wake. Lots of air!

Make sure you get a couple of those black Team Winnebagoland shirts when you pick her up next week. Hopefully your delivery day is warmer than mine was last Friday...

Just finished the oil and filter changes, installed new plugs, and got her detailed up. Hopefully get to put it in the water this weekend.

Picked her up from storage today. Fixed one of the forward trailer marker lights that was out due to connection corrosion and replaced the little tether for the coupler locking pin.

I somehow managed to get my wife involved with the detailing. She invited a friend over for wine and a few hours later the boat was clean. I didn't have to lift a single rag or spray bottle. I even pointed out a spot she missed and didn't get the laser eyes.

Installed batteries, started both engines, full detail and clean inside and out. Rain was moving in so had to cover it up. Bought the Yamaha mooring cover over the winter so unboxed it and put it on. Fits very nice!

Tomorrow is wax time. Bought Rejex earlier this week based on some threads I read. Also have a new bilge pump and float to install. Gotta pick up some hose, wiring, fuse and thru-hull piece but that’s what’s next.90C5F017-8B30-4DC2-A231-E8DF3BD4CDE7.jpeg

Understand that. We used ours the last two years and really did not do much except gas and oil change. So a little love this season. Finished the stickers. New graphics below the rub rail and then new "word" stickers above the rub rail. Little dull in the photo as it need to polish after being stripped off for the stickers and hydroturf. Words are close to original Yamaha font, but got these down local. Cannot get a complete set of graphics for above the rub rail, so ended up just leaving them off. Not really into the decals, But I thought I would try and stay original at least once.

That looks great! I have to wait till next year to order my seadek. I've already spent way too much this year.
I'm in the same boat (lol). Spent so damn much this off season getting my new to me boat up to snuff. REALLY want seadek but that'll have to wait until next year or later.
