When head north to the big lake for a full day or two, put it out there. Ill check my calendar, Sandusky Bay is an hour by sea and 90 minutes by land.

That's awesome!

I am picking mine up on Saturday after getting one of the trim/tilt assemblies replaced after it began to stop working on last day of 2018 season.
I had sold my 2 spare midsections to TomB a month later (not knowing I would need one), and he gratefully offered me one and dropped it to the mechanic on his lake last week where the boat was.
$310 later, and I should be on the water in the next week or two when I get a free day.

Season is almost upon us!

A shot w/motors full up.

That puts prop shafts 1 up from pad (where it will be) and I have 2 more on motor side should I need it.

Wow, I suck.
Almost a yr later and this all ive accomplished

Actually, finally making positive headway. After a yr of grinding and glassing, grinding and glassing.
Ugh.

Since last ck in:

Both motors now have new impellers, rebuilt carbs (both are now 225's) and new ignitions.

Bracket is done and installed.
It came out really well and Im very happy w/it and how it looks on the boat.

Some of the stupid projects I didn't know I got to do........

Orig bow hatch had a vee'd front and I replaced it w/a more modern, square Bomar.
The deck has a profile molded into it for the vee'd hatch, not a square one.
Ugh.

Three through hulls leftover from the I/O that I no longer need and now need to fill.

Still need to get the fuel sender mount moved on the new tank.

No walls for cabin.

W/engineering the new cabin entry door, that means the helm/dash goes bye bye.

Heres some pixs that are fairly self explanatory:

*Just renewed my expired membership and its not recognizing and pixs on my lap top to upload. Sorry, I'll try it tomorrow.*

Had a great day yesterday and celebrated at the end of it

The silver motors look better on the boat than I even hoped.

Still tons to do but makes for great motivation.
