Skeedeen Phase 7-9
Once the mechanic was done with his engine maintenance work inside the shop, I moved the boat back outside so that he could run the engine and finish the winterizing with antifreeze through the system. I left the boat resting on blocks, but still on the trailer, while Bill finished his work aboard, then pulled out the trailer and finished setting up the boat stands.
Afterwards, I reinstalled the two vertical frame supports I’d removed to allow engine access, then installed the aft section of the new cover. These inside photos were taken before the lines securing the cover tightly were installed, but give an idea of the fit and padding from within.
Finally, outside the boat I finished up the cover with the various lines to secure it and pull it tightly.
