In the near-term she'll be on the gulf coast of Florida.  She might make it into Lake Michigan one of these summers... but that's a ways out!

Still off-topic.... but this is what it looks like when three guys drop by to do a little servicing on one of your 1200HP engines!  Shocked

No pictures (but I can get some upon request)...

I had to fix a lot of muskrat damage to The 'Blocker this year....  Angry

Aside from that, the only major change or addition that I made was a ballast system.  I added additional flotation to the stern of her a couple of years ago which changed the center of buoyancy for the boat.  After that, when people would congregate at the bow (common) during a cruise, I ran into problems plowing the nose into wakes and rollers.  The only solution was to force folks to the stern.

So I added a stern ballast system.  I can now flood the rear pod (21" in diameter and about 10' long) which can put up to about 1500lbs of ballast behind the center of buoyancy.  I built the system using a "Ballast King" style reversible ballast pump.  The "tank" level is instrumented and I connected that sender into the NMEA 2K backbone, so the level can be displayed on any of my helm gauges.  

It all works quite well in the driveway.  Getting a late start this year due to the Florida activity.... so she hasn't gone into the lake yet.  Planning on doing that tonight.
