The golden had surgery to get the mass removed. The surgery wet well and they got it out with good margins. Further testing on the mass revealed that it's the type of tumor that is least likely to spread or redevelop so his prognosis is very good. Everyone is relieved and happy about that.
My electrical gremlin with the skiff returned. Turned out to be something in the wiring harness between the motor and the ignition. Harness replaced and all is good with the skiff.
Been grinding out slow trip after slow trip on the downeast this summer. Most days the catching is good, but the keeping, not so much. We did put 5 keeper fluke in the icebox on the last trip, so that's a step in the right direction.
One of the 2 VHF's was not receiving so I sent it in to Raymarine for analysis. Too much to fix, so I ordered up a new raymarine that replaced the older one thinking it would be a plug and play deal. Not the case. I have exposed some pretty shoddy wiring with the old radio that all needs to be fixed. Hopefully will be getting that done tomorrow. Taking the boat to Block Island for a week on the 25th so I want things to be in the best order possible.
