Finally got home and opened some packages. Going tomorrow to see the boat.

The Teague billet trim pump reservoir and drive lube reservoirs are very nice pieces!

Will have more pics tomorrow.

I had to go out of town before going over to the shop but he sent me some pics of gel coat. The yellow in the flag is getting replaced with white so he sent a preview of the one check white.

Whipples havent delivered yet but should be soon. Heads are getting ported; Dart race series heads.

Interior is getting really close. Gonna save some pics of that for when it's totally done.

Some more updates, progress has seemed slow because of holidays.

Heads are back from cnc shop and now we gotta order the Ti valves.
Blocks are at machine shop.
Checked fuel tank and put new sending unit and putting new fuel lines. Cleaned and drained it.

Trim tabs havent delivered yet. Maybe today.

Most don't recommend Titanium valves or retainers in Marine/Endurance applications FYI. Much more brittle of a material and tends to have develop fractures faster. Titanium doesn't match the longevity Inconel or Manley Supper Alloy exhaust valves or a good hardened stainless steel intake valve. Tool steel retainers are preferred. Titanium is used in mostly in drag race or short track applications where engines are frequently rebuilt and are not held WFO for miles at a time.
