Went waterskiing Friday evening, boat worked really well. We'd had earlier problems where the battery was toast, and had replaced it, and while replacing it, had discovered that the wiring harness was also toast, and patched it together. So, we ordered a new wiring harness, and it came and Ken installed it today. It seemed to start and stuff. We didn't actually drive it around, just started it. Neighbors came to go boating. The motor behaved terribly for them. Started ok, but very rough when running. They came to see if we'd done it. Ken doublechecked his work but couldn't see how the wiring harness for starting could have anything to do with making it actually go. So, we're sad, because it might take forever to get the shop to look at it. At the end of last season it was behaving terribly also, and we took it to the shop this spring. The shop couldn't reproduce the problem, just cleaned everything out and all was well again. Temporarily, I guess. So sad. I hope it gets fixed before our big party in 4 weeks!
But we got the rest of the dock in, so that's all set. Still need to put out our duck-repellent netting, because the ducks have been having a field day, ew.
