Hey JV let us know how the point goes this year, last year you put a lot of time and effort to get that whole system working properly again.

Our lake opened up friday. I was looking at the piers thinking I could put those in today. Instead I made fishing jigs in the garage and washed the big trailer to put away for the summer. Can't avoid the job forever though. Tell you what JV you fly out here to help me and I'll do the same up by you :)

Why so late on the boat by the way?

Sled, I assume by "point" you me the water pump system. Hopefully i dont have to fix the foot valve this year.

Love to come to WI but not sure of the direct flight? It takes me longer to fly to the middle of michigan to see the inlaws than drive:rolleyes:

We have always done the first week of may for the boat, which still is about 4 wks early on our lake , i may try to move it up a bit , but we will be in Sunny South Florida the middle of April. So we decided to wait til we come back.:cry:

Look at it this way. If you stay in a hotel, no need to clean or make the bed as they have a staff to do it. If your neighbours are no good, just get another room. Go to a hotel with free breakfast and life is even better :D
