Finished reattaching the tubes and flipping her back over this weekend. We are now trying to finish up the wiring of the console and A-frame and should be ready to launch on Wednesday lots of work ahead of us though.

Shyt... My boat list is about 50 items long, and there's nothing wrong with it! My Better Half is constantly amazed at the amount of time I can spend doing "nothing" out there! Meanwhile, the "Honey-Do" list on the fridge just keeps getting longer!

Im a fitness trainer so I work early in the mornings and have most afternoons open. My girlfriend is not very happy with me right now, she doesn't like how much time I spend with my "other girlfriend" as she calls it. I haven't been gettin much sleep as of late, I was up wiring up the a-frame and console till 11 last night. Can't wait to get on the water.

A man and his boat

I tend to think most women will never understand the male boat owner dynamic, I own a house but am much much more concerned about the boat overall, not much worried about the homestead really.
Your boat is looking good Thing one and two, I am sure you will be terrorizing the Chicago waterfront and general boating populace of Lake Michigan shortly, I'll give the Coast guard a call to give em a heads up!

I'll send you my ex's phone number. She's starting an "ex-RIB-Spouse" support group. Don't worry Bryan, she'll come around once you get her out in a good gale and scare the beJeezuz out of her!

As I explain this to the "New Improved" wife-to-be, our lives might depend on the state of the boat, whereas that is not likely to be the case with the house! She almost went for it until I spent most of Sunday afternoon waxing the hull and swilling brewskies...

Oh boy, does that hit home! My wife is constantly harping about the condition of the house, yard (garden for our British friends), etc. I have to take care of the RIB, our sailboat, her racing sailboat, and various other sailboats I race on. The yard has steadily gone to pot over the past few years! The RIB is the most insidious offender, as it lives beside the house, none of the other boats are quite that easy to waste time with. Mess about with boats, or do house/yard work? No contest!

Fortunately, as she's a sailor too, she sort of gets it, but it's not the same!

Console is all together and in the boat again. Satellite radio seems to be working well and it's nice not to have to deal with a head unit. Just a small hidden amp and a portable XM reciever. The seat has been covered in Hypalon, which should be pretty sturdy. Going to put the A frame and engine back on today, let some sealants dry and we should be back in business for this weekend

Now clean the tubes, take the "Whaler" sticker off the trailer, polish the A frame & transom plate and....

Ah screw it, go RIBing!

Nice work.
