So excited, she's in the water and ready for me to play. Water leak, check. Fresh bottom paint, check. Rub rail repaired, check.
Things still on the list, new cockpit hatches, new cock pit steps, update the batteries with battleborns and charger, new GPS/radar, new stereo and canvas needed. All those will be done off season, time for me to play until the rain and cold arrives.

Heading out today for a little run. Looking forward to getting some water under the boat and beginning setting it up for a great fall. I have several projects scheduled but I will not be taking it out of the water anytime soon. Love fall/winter boating.

You may be my C-Brat doppelganger. I too am in Bellingham. I too just sold my very old C-dory (1982). I too just bought a 25 with a water leak. I too am going out today for a little cruise. I'll look for you on the water, so if you see a 25 foot C-dory cruising right towards you...it's just me!

Ran the boat up to 4K RPM. Everything running well decided to run WOT to ensure itís ready for some longer trips. Then the RPMs drop significantly like it was starving of fuel. Decided to turn back and replace the Racor as it didnít have a date written and unsure of last replacement. Hoping with the limited hours I donít have to go any further. Next step fuel filter then finding a way to remove 50 gallons of gas.

Don't forget to replace the 2 filters in the engine. They're small and tend to clog up earlier.
