I probably should have mentioned earlier and photographed the "C" Chanel that they mount into. It's in the boat shed as it's 2 8 foot pieces and I don't have room for them in the house. I got it as a gift so I don't know the website but i will post as soon as I find out. It was created for boat use. I have the instruction sheet somewhere I'll look it up and post again.

Why no comments on the stereo ?? Lol

I have the same stereo, it is a really nice unit, you will like it. As far as the lights you are probably better off wiring them for just dockside use.

A toilet and hose -- man that's my kind of stuff! Santy Claus brought me a water heater for the boat, so I'm right there with you. He also brought some goose decoys, a ghetto blaster conversion for my iPhone, and assorted AR-15 parts to go with my (5) finished-at-home-so-you-don't-need-no-stinking-NICS-check 80% lowers (I stocked-up so that if I don't move from the People's Republic of Maryland before I die, I can will them to my children). Then my wife wondered why I didn't have a muzzle loader. All I could say was "Because I haven't been to the store today honey." So the Mrs. kinda got me a 0.50 cal break-barrel muzzle loader with a nice scope that I immediately put to good use.
I needed a less expensive hobby, so I bought a boat!

boston terrier kisses from maccabee before i left for my trip.

a 16 hour layover in an airport hotel near chicago o'hare.

a really long lingering hug and a kiss on the left cheek (face!!) from a marine HMX-1 (nighthawks) pilot on said flight to chicago o'hare. i'm still perplexed how i earned that show of affection. (thank you for no more DADT)
(i even got a squadron patch)

purser pay for all the 'first time flyers' i had to deal with on a 4 day trip working on the airbus a321.

a starbucks card from my nieces and nephews.

nothing, not a DAMN THING from 'you know who'

a package of jammie dodgers (think doctor who's matt smith) from a first officer i fly with frequently. no strings attached either.

a huge bill from johns hopkins telling me i still owe them thousands of dollars. and that's with blue cross/blue shield.

oh, and a lump of coal just to round out the season.

Good to see you here, Aaron! You know my opinion of you know who. Other than that, you sound good!

yes nancy. i know. HOWEVER, though i 'sound good', i'm far, far from it. there is a ton of stuff hiding behind the 'sounding good/looking good' facade these days. i'm masking a great deal. believe me.

Well, we'd rather have you here masking things than not here at all. Glad you're back. :D

Sorry to hear there are still big challenges, Aaron. :( Shoot me an email if you want. I'm a good listener. :) In the meantime, I'm with DH - glad you're checking back in here. You were missed!

Update: Installed Christmas stuff..... new stereo, Trim Tab LED lights, and speakers pics below. After looking into it I decided not to install those mast lights.

I take it you're talking about the antenna lights? What did you find out?
