I'm afraid I'll be starting the next trailer queen race. Here is how it all gets started. Once the engines are out, the transom assy looks like crap so I may as well take them off too, and maybe I should paint the engine compartment white. Looks like someone was murdered in there, and on and on and on.......

It'll sure be nice when I do get it back together.

New intakes will be really kool. They are the Merlin intakes for tall deck and 4150 carbs. (Marine versions with brass cladding in the water jackets).

Here's what an exhaust valve looks like after detonation and right before destroying engine. Got really lucky.

TooOld YOU ARE CHEATING!!!!!!! What is up with the voodoo magic BS and sending me rain!!!! Man that is so damn selfish I can not believe you would do that to me. Hey did you get through the burger recal yet????? That sucks that you have to send all the burgers back because someone found out they are all bad

7 hours HA!!!!! I climbed under the boat and used it for shelter and just sanded away. When the rain let up I sanded the sides, when it rained again I sanded under again. I got the whole starbord side sanded and just have the port side to do tomarrow. I buffed the outer bottom as well. I have some touch ups to do under one of the streaks then sand and buff, should go fast. What I have buffed out is looking good so far. I just have to show the guy that painted the boat how to aim his gun UP
