Back From Lake Erie

I had a lot of problems this trip. That slow oil drip I have had since the boat was new rotted the insulation on some of my wires to my power trim, and they cause my wires to my motor to get hot and melt the insulation and short out. If that wasn’t enough my bilge kept burning fuses and this was quite worrisome. I had a feeling I would have tire troubles coming home and sure enough I had a valve stem go out while on the toll-road. The fish turned off as heat and humidity moved in the second day and it was like that all week. I didn’t get much filming done because boats were always pestering me and I couldn’t shake them. I did get a lot of photos though.
