This morning I stopped by West Marine to get a hand bilge pump for the drift boat. While there I couldn't resist buying this years tide tables for our area. I also spent a little time going through the store with a wish list for things that I'll need or want to get the boat out of the construction yard and into the water this year. My usual first move would be to get her looking mint, and then worrying about the engine, but I know thats the wrong way to think. I am going to get someone who knows to look at her before I waste even more money. How much money have I wasted over the course of my 43 years of life? Its sad, but a ton. At least this 99 cent tide table book isn't a waste of money, I hope.
