    I was too busy to take photos. Test drove a boat, worked on boats, saw 91į on the dial, sweated a little bit more, drove to MA to pick up more boats.
    Itís almost 10 PM, itís dark and itís still 79į. I guess summer arrived. Whereís my new plane?

    Aftermarket tires run outside of the factory ďparametersĒ. And of course you canít change the range of them, according to the dealer.

    Stuart & John's

    Roger from Stuart & Johns called me last night, hoping I had found a replacement airborne device to come visit them. He said they just installed a BIG windsock, the field is dry and the grass isn't too long. He seems to think that they have plenty of fields so not to worry too much about matting down his "airstrip".

    So basically he just invited ya'll to get over there anytime you can. He loves to see us there, and mentioned again how much fun it was to see "big" groups of us, which so far I think has maxed out at 4 or 5.

    If you go flying and have a moment, stop in and say hi to Roger & Ellie, have breakfast, lunch or ice cream if you have a craving. I think he's flying vicariously through us. Maybe someone with a side by side like Bowie or Tim can get him to go for a flight around the valley. I bet he'd talk about it for the rest of his life.

    So I get to the island and Bob say that the outhouse that his son Mike had built as a kid had gotten blown into the Hudson River with the big storm Friday evening. It sat behind the island house on the bank of the river as a reminder of Mike who died last fall.



    So.....guess who gets to go swimming in the Hudson to fish a strap under and around the outhouse.



    Got a little beat up but we made his wife Pat happy

    Had to pik pole the ice around the dock on Saturday morning. The water is deadly cold. One immediate project is to formally designate the seaplane landing areas to prevent those from away who tell everyone what to do from curbing activity.

    Yea, I didn't make it. Bought a boat on Friday in Enfield CT for $1300 that hadn't run in 5 years. Worked all day on it Sat, water pump and took all 3 carbs apart.





    Didn't have any parts left over so off to the lake to see if it's going to run

    Go's like hell 36 mph
