Motor is in, aligned, and bolted down. Thanks BGIII and Tinkerboater for all the help tonight. Couldn't have done it without you guys. A few things to be done before the back seat goes back in and I should be on the water Wed. or Thursday.

Default I was flipping through an old

Hot Boat magazine the other day and saw a picture of your boat in the Stern Drive Tech section. I thought that was pretty cool. Good luck getting that new motor dialed in. Normally I am doing the same thing, but no major changes were made for this season so all I need to do is go boating. One of these days the weather will shape up so we can get out and rip it up. Let us know how it does.

My boat is currently in the drive way. I've been pulling the cover back over (loose) with a small electric heater under the dash. It doesn't get hot under there, but it's warm enough to make it bearable. Those FRS radios sure are handy when I need that one part.
