I picked up a nice spare Cobra outdrive off of eBay and have been collecting Cobra parts over the past few years...trim rams....steering actuator...exhaust Y pipe..Cobra parts are surprisingly reasonably priced...

Yes they came way down didnt they. I am about to do the same with mine. Get them while the getting is good.

I think there are guys out in fresh water parts of the Midwest parting out rotted boats and there is a treasure trove of nice fresh water parts. Here we are all salt water so for me its a no brainer to collect stuff I may need since I can always ebay it if I sell the boat and didn't need it. But it keeps me from losing a season if I need something that can't be found around here.

I just got all new rollers, shafts for them and marker lights for the trailer. In anticipation of spring. I would post pictures if the site would accept them with out 15 tries to get the exact number of pixels it wants.

I checked the engine bay for a noise it developed after a 70 mile run to Sarasota and back to Charlotte harbor. I can see some belt dust on the stringers so something connected to the belt is not correct. I called my mechanic. I also cleaned the seats and measured the rear storage door slam locks to order a new one. The old lock is broken.

I got a prop it was the wrong pitch so I sent it back today. Last night I re-ordered the prop I wanted from a different place it should be here in 2 days.

Mach3 Express 14.25X21. Prop number 6 lol. I got a bunch.

River is flooded. That means boat season is getting closer.

The right prop came a few days ago.

I put the new trailer rollers on. The new prop today.

Tomorrow new plugs in the motor. Trailer marker light. One of the yellow guys is burned out. Put the battery and gas in the tractor.

It is getting close to splash time isn't it guys?

Well I tried 4 different ways to post a picture this site needs to get a grip as far as pics go. IMG tag dont work. URL dont work. Post a image it cries it isnt the pixal count it likes. LOL I tried.

We had a couple of warm days now back to damp and cold. Got a couple of projects on the old boat before I launch it this year. Have to fix some rot in the starboard combing panel wood and while I have it off I will finally install the new control I bought like years ago. These panels are a real pain to remove so I waited till it really had to be done, I did the port side about 2.5 years ago...then a little upholster work, new accelerator pump for my old Quadrajet etc.
