I can do work on a boat, too. Albeit my skills are far below those of hobiecat... I bought my boat without electronics because I figured I could save hundreds of dollars. I was looking at $1,200 for a modest fish finder and $400 for a sub-par battery charger. I got a better charger and a slightly lesser fish finder for $800. I picked up the boat Friday afternoon and drove through a snow storm on I-76.
I didn't go to work on it until Saturday evening because:
1. I hosted a mini homecoming party for the boat Friday night. It turned out well because my friend gifted me a fish finder that probably costs over $2K.
2. I procrastinated most of Saturday because I knew working on the boat would not be fun. There was always something that had to be done right this moment, before I get to work on the boat. Like checking fishing websites and such... And check those websites again because someone might have posted something new in the last few seconds...
Anyway, after 1 trip to Cabelas, 1 trip to Ace Hardware store, 1 trip to Autozone, 1 trip to O'Reilly, 3 trips to Walmart, and countless hours of hard labor, I finally got it done.
I just need to figure out how to turn my 4 pin trailer connector into a 5 pin connector now... I have an adapter on order. It should be an easy job for someone who knows what they are doing, but it will probably take my a few trips to some stores and countless hours of additional labor.
