    I thought a current thread should be started.

    I have a few minor things that have to be done to my gal but I am sure some of you have some things that would be worth sharing. Let's keep this portion of the forum alive and fresh shall we :).

    I need to look into my on board battery charger needing a new cord do to the original wearing out. I am sure the charger is still ok but the end of the cord wore out with plugging in and out over the last few years.

    I have sloppy VHF antennae as well that needs looking at.

    I had Moose Marine Electrical redo my back deck light switch and it is working awesome now!

    I've already cleaned up my wiring, adding positive and negative bus bars to clean up the cluster f**k on my fuse block. Next up is adding a Garmin 18HD radar dome. I've got all the bits and pieces now just have to find some good days to take the cover off the boat and do the install. Biggest issue will be fishing the wires from the cuddy cabin up through the windshield pillar on my Striper's Alaska Hardtop. Going to have to install a couple of large ports in the underside of the top to help guide the wiring and through bolt the radar mount.

    Taking the 3 carbs off my 200 Yami and checking for worn needles and seats...I think I occasionally get a float that sticks and floods a couple of cylinders.

    Carb rebuilds on all 4 of them off my 140 hp Johnson. Probably the carb on my Yamaha 6 too. Maybe ditch my small roof mounted arch and go with a gunnel to gunnel over roof setup

    I plan in having one 8" deck hatch just over the sending unit. All the fuel lines were sealed in with 3M 5200 (still curing) and after I cut the 1/2" ply it will be glassed then a layer of CSM will be glassed in and finally the marine vinyl. SO much more room in the Double Eagle!

    I have to install a battery, bilge pump, fishfinder and i have to re-fibreglass a "knee" that is attached to my deck and the inside of my transom. Once it gets warmer in the spring i am going to sand and paint my deck and my seats.
    Also, i am going to sand down the metal parts on my trailer and re-paint them, get new trailer wheels and put on a new trailer winch.
    I am also installing inspection ports, more rod holders, a downrigger and i have to get lettering to put my boats name on it.

    I have to install a new rubrail as well since I damaged about three feet and can't find a replacement piece.

    Gungadin where are you sourcing your rubrail?
