LOL....just saw in the painted dash pick I have that sqaure gauge painted red...LOL!!!!! It looked to be some kind of depth gauge and was faded to hell and back and the screen was cracked. I was going to put a gauge cover in the spot but it left a big square whole so I just painted it and stuck it back in the panel until I can figure something better out to put there. It looks like chit, but believe me it looked worse before...I am embarrassed about that pic, but what the hell. Like I said earlier this isn't a new fountain, skater or mega high dollar boat.

I forgot I also took the gas tank out and had it cleaned and replaced all the fuel lines and vents in the boat.


Feel free to point out anything I may need to address.

Who ever took the motor OUT did it the Hard Way. Un bolting the mounts & Belhousing from the Bock. There is No harder way.

After doing putting it togethor I think your right! That's how it was when I got it. There is a TON of work that went into this boat!!! Many many days and nights my girlfriend and I worked on this boat to get it done in a timely fashion!! I really pushed to get it done so we could use it for the remaining of the summer. Last year I bought an offshore center console at the end of the summer and we got stuck fishing offshore in the winter which turns out to be good tuna fishing but horrible weather patterns!!!! We got beat up everytime but caught tons of fish!

I'm so glad it's done and running. A couple times I was ready to turn in the towel as it was a major pain in the a$$, but the last two weeks have made it all worth it!!!!

Nice looking boat. Great looking crew! Try and keep them that way and do everybody a favor and dont run with ANYONE on the hatch cover. Good Luck and be safe.
