Going up in a little bit and put wifey's aunt/uncle's pontoon boat in the lake for the season.

Marty and I "rescued" the 10' fishing boat at the Cabin yesterday.  Eliminated one wasp nest under a seat and rebuilt the "stilts" that keeps it above the water when not in use.  The dock needs re-decking, and I think that I have enough White Oak for that.

Fun times are experiences that everyone is still speaking to one another!

An update on my boating adventures...
After the mechanic looked over the overheated boat motor, he said to toss in the towel - this ones dead.  It seems the cost to go through it would be enough that buying a new one would make more sense and he could not guarantee that rebuilding it would last anyway.   So The Skipper went on a quest to get another and came back with a new "used" boat. 

This one is about the same size but heavier and more "genderfied".  His wife is happy with the nicer finishes and he has even put it in the water once or twice. Crabbing - if he can get the wife's permission to take such a civilized boat on a dirty mission remains to be seen.  I have offered to take the old boat off his hands (without telling my wife of course) but he seems to think it has some resell value and isn't entertaining my kind offer. 

Hopefully after his annual week of family gathering and boating he will be more willing to risk the wife's ire and give it crabbing a chance. For now however I will stick to getting my crab fix from those little packages of Krab that is the byproduct of Alaskan waters.  It tastes good enough and is a great deal safer to get.
