Well I finally got Solitude home from North Illinois a couple weeks ago. The more time I spend rooting around through all the goodies the PO left in her the more I love this boat. Swear the PO must of owned stock in West Marine. I have a few little projects to finish, making the AIS of the new Standard Horizon vhf communicate with the Garmin, make a mast raising system and a little cleaning. Can't wait to get her in the water. Has finally warmed up enough that I think Ill try the V-bearth out tonight. Life is good.
