But its going pretty well so far, just a lot of work and time. Got all the ROT out and I am getting ready to do the real stuff sometime next week. It is good in a way...after the job is done and the boat is back together, I will know it inside and out. I'll post pics when its all done.

I gave the fabricator my tail pipes back in Febuary (the day before the blizzard) and ordered the drives in Febuary too.... I'm getting the run around lately.

JC is the only one who got something done when they said they would, he's good like that. Must be the NY mentality.

I've been busy the past couple weeks sizing up the cement slippers,,just need to test to see if they fit now..

Add to the list; moving into a new house, building a new laundry room for the wifey, painting all the rooms and molding in the entire house, building a sky-light tunnel etc.

Ahhhh, what a year..

Had the boat out twice so far. Had to rebuild both external steering rams (leaking), and the trim motor is lazy, so that's the next thing that needs a rebuild. Hopefully nothing major this year. Thinking about installing the KPM raw water pump Ive had for a year.

Thanks for the kind words.......Its been all paid for for awhile so Ive decided to keep it after all ......I thought seriously about a move up to a 35 but that would have meant a tow vehical upgrade too so that was the clincher in the end......it can get out of hand......when I pull the engines I want to redo all the bilge in white......I have a new purple dash for it......new rubrail.......my buddy does interiors.........it should run right around 80 and have some good midrange with the new motors......with the help of OSO swap section Im going to hang with it and have a nice older(1989) 29.......the old Fountains upgrade quite well.......my inspiration was the guy with that mint red and silver 27 Magnum......old but still a cool boat........

Engine off the dyno with some descent numbers. Waiting for the marine mechanic to get the other boats out of the way to make room for mine!

Hopefully in a couple of weeks. I might beat TBONE!!
