Sunday, the weather is nice and Jill is feeling pretty good. I ask her if she wants to go boating. Jill says "yes" and I go out the barn to get ready. First time out this year. Climb up the back of the boat to remove the battery tender. On the 22SFX, there is a panel in the starboard rear corner that has connections to the battery that I hook the tender to. This allows you not to have to remove the top of the battery box to get at the cables. When you use the jump connections, I found out that the battery switch has to be on to get power back to the battery. So last year I raised the sundeck pad for access to the battery switch. When removing the tender, I looked at the raised cushion and thought, It will clear the trusses but I should lower it. It was in front of the Bimini. I would have to crawl under to get to it. In my stupidity, I decided to deal with it later. Checked tire pressures. Hooked up by myself. Slowly pull out with the windows down to hear. Get a huge bang and bump in the boat. Forget to lower the sundeck cushion and it did not clear the door opening. Hitting the door frame levered the cushion until it ran into the lowered bimini. Damage: Tears in the big sundeck cushion and a tear in the small cushion. Destroyed the hinge cross-brace. Destroyed the 2 hinges. Bent top rails of the sundeck enclosure. Bent 2 bimini struts. Have not opened the bimini yet to check for additional damage. Destroyed my day to have to tell Jill, I F'ed the boat up. Spent the morning, removing parts and using bottle jacks to move the rails back into a workable repair. Stopped being mad at myself and got the boat into shape and told Jill, we are going to the lake. Had a great day on the water. Cesears Creek in Ohio finally has a marina. 8 million dollars builds a really nice facility. Boated for the afternoon and got ice cream at the marina and had a great day. Just got off the phone with our dealer and ordered the parts I needed. Just hope repair parts don't take forever to ship. I just need them to make a couple extra parts for the next 22SFX going down the line . Morale: Don't be lazy and lower something with you see it in the barn.
