Shake Down Cruise

Been so busy with work lately due to "weather events" didn,t have the boat ready 'till noon sat. Took the wife as it was her birthday and she,s a good boat steerer. Went to West Alton Marina, dock closed. Ames Farm, closed to outsiders. Gilford Town Docks, can,t afford their parking tickets. Fays Boat Yard,finally yes! Noticed brake fluid leaking out of trailer master cyl. and missing tail lite lens. No big deal. Both motors ran great and it felt good to be back on the water but no hits, so tried the radio, nothing. Found the coax came apart at the radio.Fiddeled with it for half hour. Gotta solder it. Nearly lost a rigger overboard when the cable caught a 2by8. Then finally got an 18in. salmon on a copper redhead needlefish at two colors.Released unharmed and a good day was had by all. Cal P.
