    A few pics out with friends, memorial day weekend...3rd run
    After looking thru almost 700 pics that my buddy from portland
    took on our memorial weekend outing, finally have a few to
    share...

    getting boat ready for launch, not bad for making a new canvas top
    to go on my frame



    Travis Double checking things inside for me




    while getting boat ready to launch, Everett police performed a
    safety inspection, I happily agreed and passed with flying colors !




    backing the boat into the water (so much better with power
    steering that WORKS)




    Warming up the engine, getting ready to go...



    out into Port Gardner, and off into the sound we go!! Got onto a
    plane much easier after tuning it better!




    happiness shared with an old friend from Portland! This is on the
    way to Shilshole marina to pick up a 3rd friend....



    without wipers, had to stop once and have Travis do an E.V.A. to
    clean the windows off...this was in the middle of the sound hehe...

    part 2


    Picked up Hans while at Shilshole marina, here is his opinion of
    how the boat he helped rebuild was working...



    On more of Than, holding his hair down for the pick...but I teas
    him that he is "primping" for the pic This was about 10 mins
    after leaving Shilshole



    A good view of the Lady Washington and the Hawaii Cheiftan on
    the way back into the Everett Launch



    Docked and waiting for my turn to pull the boat out, I am off
    getting the trailer... the Trophy on the right of the pic had a rough
    day...60 miles out of Everett, and their main motor died....8hrs
    limping back on their kicker :shock:





    We had a great day on the water, and only one issue which has
    since been fixed (developed a leak on my exhaust riser gasket)
    Regards,
    Will R. Everett, WA.

    Nice work Will looks like you guys had a good time. Nice looking
    water too.

    It was a great time, the best part was that I got to share it with
    good friends! There wasn't much in the way of sun that day, misted
    and light rain on and off...but the water was mostly perfect all day
    aside from being on a ferry that was the farthest offshore I have
    ever been...still looking forward to the next outing which as it
    looks like now, will be just into July...will definately break out my
    fishing gear hehe
    Regards,
    Will

      I have no idea what an E.V.A. is, but your friend Travis there wiping down your windshield looks just like the guy looking for a buck who washed my car's windshield when I was at a stop light on Hollywood Blvd a few years ago! HA!

      Looks like a great time out on the water with friends, Will. Re-posting those I'll bet got your fire stoked a bit more to get your boat back out there, eh?!

        Tim,

        I love that pic, in my album it's titled "wash yer windows mister?" .The definition of EVA is "Any time an astronaut gets out of a vehicle while in space, it is called a spacewalk. A spacewalk is also called an EVA. EVA stands for extravehicular activity." And yes my friend, it does have me stoked to get back out there

        Regards,
