    Yeah, 100% agree on that one BB. Now that Dad is looked after, we've bought the house and moved in, and renoed the old apartment, I'm really leaning into Serenity again. At least a couple hours a day there.

    The binliner, and that 150 Johnson have been in Abbotsford for half a year without enough attention. I'm going to start making that trek. Maybe bring an overnight bag and put in a few 16 hour days.

    Anyone care to guess what she is? I have no idea.

    She's a right lot prettier than blackberry bushes.

    Is that a glass hull?

    Yeah. You can see the very heavy roving inside.

    IMG_20220517_095833567.jpg IMG_20220517_095821419_HDR.jpg Only concern now is we are going through a gallon/4l of 94 octane gas in an 8 minute trip at half throttle. I suspect the space under this sole is full of water, and the state of this prop can't be helpful either.

    Update. Lime has about a dozen holes in her bottom. Look like screws penetration from the inside out. Repaired, for now.
    The interesting thing is the replacement prop won't go on. Got the hub kit for a 70hp Johnson. Too small. Assumed I'd bought the wrong kit so. I bought another, also too small. Tried the hub kit for Serenity's 250HO, and it fits, although too long.
