 :tickedoffI hate it too...
 Sorry to hear about your losses, our prayers are with you. We lost my wifes Mom JUST before the Pandemic. I think it WAS covid but no one was testing for it yet.
Had to sell her house in the hights of the Covid, what a nightmare. We got what we asked and it only took 3 months for the paperwork to clear. How you get some relief soon. D

I still check in almost daily. Just too busy/tired to respond. Still working 7 days a week. This Covid thing has life really screwed up right now. Very understaffed at work. Hard to hire any help when folks can sit home and draw un-employment + covid releif and bring in nearly twice a weeks pay when working.
To complicate things, We lost my Mother in law in Nov. and My Mom in Dec. Neither Covid related.

We had a little "Set back" yesterday day.

After a 1 1/2 hour drive in the thick fog still black as sin we pulled into the dirt boat ramp on the Missouri River. The thermometer on the truck said 4*. Rafts of slush ice flowed past us at the ramp. A few whacks with a spud bar broke most of the ice OFF the dirt bank we were using as a ramp, the strong current flushed it away. We backed into the black water, the boat instantly froze to the carpet-covered bunks, first thing this spring we will put on roller bunks. We had the air-cooled motor running wail we loaded and got the boat ready, still running in the water. I helped the motor get the boat broke free and about ready to turn it loose. it died. We hit the key and it would not turn...



Dang, we drug it out, trying to jump it off the trolling motor, no good.



Upon the flat, we unhooked and mover the truck around and put the jumper cables on it, and let it charge for an hour. it fired right up and we got it in the water and off we go the sky was light by then we felt good. About 5 miles upstream it stumbled and stopped running, and the batter was dead as it can get. it is an EFI motor and the computer will not let it run or charge if there is no battery.



This battery is buried in the bowels of the boat and extremely hard to get to. We could not get the other battery into its spot and the cables were too short, jumper cables would not stay hooked up.



Now what? We walked back to the truck and got the truck battery that would fit and walked back with it and some proper tools. About noon now and it had warmed up to about 25*. We drove the boat back to the ramp put it on the bank put the truck battery back in,  the trailer in the water then wrestled the boat in to the trailer and hand-winched it up. WOW, what a hunting trip. Unloaded our gear out of the boat, and home. Here there are no "Mud buddy" dealers or workshops. We found a place that checked the charging system and battery. It is charging fine but the New batter with under 10 hours on it was junk. We got two battery's one for starting the other is for trolling, lights, and fox pro but it WILL fit in as a backup for the starting system. "MUD BUDDY" Wii be paying for a new battery, but we are back up and running for the morning...
