    its that time of year.

    i hate this time of year all the summer toys have to go away. my car, my new to me motorcycle, and my jetski go into winter storage. i dont have any winter hobbies but it does allow me to tear into things for the next season. unfortunately my ski is just going to get some mild prep work this year like carb rebuild. next winter im gona do a complete tear down and redo the hull. this year the motorcycle is getting rebuilt from the ground up.


    what about you guys what do you do when you lay up your summer toys? any winter hobbies?

    No unfortunately if my interviews with BOA dont work out my boat will have to be winterized too I don't miss the cold, although riding in 34 degree water with 38 degree air temps is def a story to tell....

    Yea, I bought the house in April. Then we got remenants of the Hurricans that dumped 9+ inches in a day on us, water started coming in from everywhere. My house is old, but not that old. THe problem was not water flowing in, it was water getting out. The house was retrofitted with a sump like 5-6 years ago (according to the son of the previous owner), but whoever put it in never put a check-valve on the discharge tube. So when the sump would kick on and dump, when it turned off, over 3/4 would come back down. 10 seconds later it would kick on again. The sump just could not keep up...So water would back fill

    But since the finished walls had been already soaked a few times from flooding, then its time for everything to come out. So the walls will come down, which will let me pull the ceiling down. I can recondifure the walls, run new electical and plumbing, so that in the spring when I need to I can do my stuff upstairs and its prepped ready to go...
