When head north to the big lake for a full day or two, put it out there. Ill check my calendar, Sandusky Bay is an hour by sea and 90 minutes by land.

That's awesome!

I am picking mine up on Saturday after getting one of the trim/tilt assemblies replaced after it began to stop working on last day of 2018 season.
I had sold my 2 spare midsections to TomB a month later (not knowing I would need one), and he gratefully offered me one and dropped it to the mechanic on his lake last week where the boat was.
$310 later, and I should be on the water in the next week or two when I get a free day.

Season is almost upon us!

A shot w/motors full up.

That puts prop shafts 1 up from pad (where it will be) and I have 2 more on motor side should I need it.
