    Haul out

    Hauled out this morning and fought a rising tide and breeze of the direction. Crabbing to tie up was a struggle. But to my pleasant surprise the 4 plus year old bottom paint was sound with no barrier coat peeking through. Shafts, props, trim tabs all looked great. Monthly bottom cleaning has been a good investment.
    The only minor issue was they hull screens for the salt water head intake was crust. But I have no salt water head system. My system is Vaccuflush fresh water. So those thru hulls are not used and have not been used since 1996!
    CLEAN YOUR BOTTOM BUT DO NOT FLUSH THOSE “FLUSHABLE WIPED”!

    Beware of conditions looking “too good”. It’s the corollary to “no good dead goes unpunished”.

      Pete- I think you meant “deed” not “dead” 🤣

      Did two coats and will be back in the water Friday.
      Survey went well with no major issues noted. OEM ice make non-op. Ready to battle insurance now.

        Ice maker is an easy fix.

          Uline ice makers have lots of service parts, sometimes a new unit is cheaper but both are options depending on the issue.

            I have become accustomed to purified water produced ice in my counter top ice maker but I suspect after pouring sufficient vodka the ice quality and purity is of less concern.

              When we got our 1987 4550 the U-Line icemaker would freeze but wouldn't produce ice. I pulled the grill off the front and found the wire harness was disconnected from the water valve. Plugged it back in and it started making ice right away.

              I found the original manual later and in the troubleshooting section it actually said to check that wire connector, so I wonder if it's a common issue...

                I’ll check that out. A P.O. Changed the grill out to a teak grill with a switch on the face. I’ll check it out again. Would make a nice spot for a 2cf freezer.
