A quick update here. The insurance company has my money, I am waiting on the title from them. We have cleaned out most of the old gear no longer needed, vacuumed all the standing water out of every void I could find (many of them) and started work on the motor change oil etc. I will need a new starter which I plan on buying and installing in the next week in order to start the motor. I am apprehensive but the experts say not to worry, its a diesel and it did not get water in it. This weekend I want to really concentrate on the topside and rig. I have a stainless steel rod rigged boat, that could be good or bad, I have read it both ways. I want to identify any soft spots in the deck and get them taken care of this spring.
