today i managed to knock a couple projects off the boat to do list.wired up another volt meter in the dash for my rear battery,so now the 2 fronts and the rear are metered and good to go.pulled out the aerater switch from the dash and pulled apart the 3 way switch that came with my minnkota anchor winch and mounted it in the aerater spot,saved me from attempting to cut out another slot.no need for the aerater switch,it's illegal to transport live fish in my area so i turned my livewell into a big ass cooler and plugged the overflow with sprayfoam,so the switch was redundant.next up is the rear battery.i switched my camper from group 27 deep cycles to group 31 agm's,so i have 2 almost new trojan batteries.one for the truck and one for the boat.i just have to pull the battery,pull the tray and relocate the kill switch,but it's just too hot to muscle those things around. get one thing done and 2 more show up #-o

got my stereo installed and the speakers mounted.what a pain pulling the wires.i thought the cutting holes thru the aluminum for the speakers were going to be the hard part,but no.still haven't gotten around to the battery and tray yet.had the 4 year old grandson helping me since thursday while we waited for his new baby brother to arrive.we couldn't get out in the boat due to the heavy rain we had over the weekend.next up are some trailer upgrades.

the wife got $750 worth of gift cards from cabelas for her 20 year anniversary at her job on friday so we hit the rv show today then stopped in and picked up 2 springfield seat sliders and an assortment of yeti tumblers and mugs.those seat sliders made a world of difference. now she wants better seats.

Wow! That was a real bonanza!

I've heard that Cabelas kind of looks like BPS these days?

i wouldn't say that.bps is much bigger sq. meter size and has a huge boat/motor department,at least up here in western canada.

Truth be told, while I order stuff from them, I've never actually been inside a Cabela's. Nearest one to me is probably Reno. I had read somewhere that the inventory was changing to kind of line up with BPS. Glad to hear if it isn't happening as I like having options.
