Green river to Moab and back. May 25th
West coast of BC leave Colorado August 10
Yankton SD to Kansas City October- ish

I'm trying to get all my projects done before the first trip of the year

Wag bag style toilet under high deck bench made from aluminum (trash bag and kitty litter when not in a state park that requires an approved method)
Air powered stomp grate
New Garmins, just got this done today
Install new XM weather antenna
Turbo impeller
Hard side windows
Drill out every snap rivet and replace with longer length rivet.
Powder coat trim tabs
Cut out side exhaust and weld side back in
Add hole for anchor winch line to go through
Hold open latches for front doors

That's all I have to do. What modification have you done to your boat that you don't want to live without?

If anybody else would like to join for the green river to Moab run that would be great. The scenery is pretty wild, check it out on google earth. Here is some info on the trip. http://friendshipcruise.com/

How close are you on the Turbo Impeller?

Front impeller now fits over the 2" shaft. Next step build it up to the right OD. Turbo 274 here we come! :Drink:

More machineing done today. If you're thinking about doing this yourself, don't. Send it to Rick...
