Default Spring projects done // BOAT STARTED!

Well after a busy spring, I have my new engine installed a running, re-epoxyed nosecone and painted outdrive, installed mufflers, painted dash white and installed a morse shifter to replace the old foot throttle, and fiberglassed a new side pannel to hold the throttle / shifter. Let me know how it looks. This should be a good boating summer after a 1 1/2 of working out the bugs. I might dip it in this sunday for the Metro Boat Show. Just a few bugs to work out.

Check out the first link / might have not been a dream boat if I would have gotten a survey. All jokes aside I still like the boat just took a year and a half to get back to boatable.

Remember it the Scarab CV that you walked me through the rotted transom last summer. By the way thanks a million to all members. You would know me better if I did not spend so much time working on this boat. I am looking at tech post for hours every day. Well I am almost done and it was worth the wait.

I remember that boat now. Have a blast with it, time to have fun. Looks like you did some good work on her.
