Jack went today to pick up some Glyde Slicks, which essentially are strips you adhere to your carpeted trailer bunks. They are designed to help your boat slide right off the trailer and into the water.

Every since we converted our roller trailer to bunks, we've had trouble moving that 6000 pounds of fiberglass. This should do the trick and they're very reasonably priced. Infact, comments left about the product insist they work almost too good. You'd better keep your boat hooked up to the trailer until it is over water. I am looking forward to the change. I have really disliked the transition to bunks. I never thought I'd say this at first, but I did like the roller trailer over time. The horsepower & rollers did all the work for me.

We're hoping that Jack's selanoid shows up in the mail by tomorrow. That way, Sunday afternoon, he can take the boat to the ramp and put on the sticks and then work on the trim tabs quickly before having to head back to evening church.

If all goes well, I'd love to head out fishing on Monday morning. The seas are staying approx 2-3 ft. Fishermen are heading out in droves tomorrow morning. Supposedly, red snapper are stacked up in certain areas. We just need to catch us a few and bag some to hold us through the winter.

And the timing couldn't be more perfect!! Gas was down at $2.16/ gal today. If there is a silver lining in this economic disaster, it is that gas prices have come down.

Pray for us to be able to get all this done and get fishing by Monday!!
