Got a lot accomplished today. Got the engines set in. Had to spend quite a bit of time aligning the the gimbal bearing into the coupler. The outer stringers were replace so no holes were drilled. Had to get everything aligned, bolts tightened and C-clamped the mounts to the new stringers. then drilled out the holes.
Now need to plumb the new fuel system, wire the whole EFI system in and freshen up drives.

This thing is looking awesome and has been a great thread. I'm really looking forward to seeing it completed and in the water.

Slow progress. Realizing that my engines were originally out of my Panther I needed to build new engine wire harnesses, order all new Gaffrig senders, run/build all new oil lines and fuel system. wired analog/digital systems. (EFI) also new gimbal bearings. The rigging is so time consuming now that everything has to be wired nice and neat with proper planning. I bought so many -AN brackets, couplers, zip ties, hose/wire holder thingy mounts... I'm also moving batteries to level out the boat. It lists terribly to the starboard side. I plan to work on it all day tomorrow and maybe Saturday. Should be able to hopefully fire them next week.
During this time Valako (JimV) and I also moved out of our shop.

I have more pics of progress I'll add.
