    Yep, just this past week I was thinking about getting the boats ready for the season, good thing they are still wrapped up and under cover, another week or two and things will be looking up.

    I drilled out the oil holes in the bar tonight after cutting, they were pathetically small, less than 1/16" but drilled them up to 7/64`s, they will flow much better now.

    The EPA mandated rules make some sense sometimes but other times it makes things nearly unusable until modified. I have drilled out bars for many years now and should have done so before using this latest GB bar, all fixed now and no damage done.

    Picked up several bars that were barely used with tips scattered and can only be from low oil. I know it wasn't the saw as they replaced the bar and all is well.

    Been too wet here lately to run saws, woods is terribly saturated and is running like a river, will take many days to dry up.

    This wet weather is getting a bit monotonous now, need a canoe to paddle about cutting trees. St John River has flooded above previous years levels, evacuation orders given.
