Cal and Frog,
I am glad I live just far enough south of you guys to miss the snow. Today in La Crosse it was about 40 and raining. It is going to be in the mid 40's and sunny for the next 2 days, and in the 60's on Sunday ( I will believe that when I see it ). My wife thinks I am crazy when I sit in my Thompson in the garage drinking beer and making motor noises. I don't see a problem.
Cal, I am in the process of installing the single cable steering system from your nephew's boat. When I picked up the 1150 Merc he asked if there was anything else I wanted before he scrapped the boat. I am glad we took some time with his Sawz-all and grabbed a couple of freebies.
