Got all the divers painted and rigged...
24 blue bills - 16 Drakes and 8 hens (10 magnums)
6 Magnum red heads - 3 and 3
6 Magnum Cans - 4 and 2
3 scooters - 3 and 0
6 golden eye - 6 and 0
5 Mag buffies - 5 and 0
And some mallards for fillers.

Just have to get the blind back on the boat, and all is prepared and ready to go.

Got the 45psi wash down pump up and running this afternoon. The housing is cast iron and a little rust froze up the impeller. Took off the Impeller cover and oiled behind the impeller and the pump housing, then cleaned the cover surface where it meets the impeller with the dremel and a buffing wheel with a little bit of grease. plugged the pump in and ran it without the cover for a few minutes with some corrosion-X on it. put the cover back on and she's good to go!

**Edit to add...
We pull water from the bayou to washdown the deck, boots, the gang plank, boat, etc....even works awesome on the decoys too!! Best $40 bucks we've spent yet on the camp! :thumbsup:

To haul some dirt to certain spots and the duck blind and many, many, many more projects around my house.

I am always debating between a compact tractor and skid loader.

My buddy down the road has a excavation business and I have access to all that equipment (when his dad is at the bar or vacation) but having your own is always a plus.

Not yet brotha, you forgot the motor?!?
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

True. Low on paint and didn't want to pull the engine off to de-grease, prep, etc. I am sure it will get painted in the next year or so.
