Well TooOld it could be. I am still waiting for parts for Motor #2!!!! I will risk it if I have to to get up there and hope that some one has the hoses.... even used I do not care, just want to hit the water. I am not 100% satisfied with the boat right now, I am such a freeking perfectionist I keep seeing what is wrong and not how much better it looks. Oh well

I know TooOld I know. If some one else did the job I am sure I would not see any of these mistakes. I mean it is my first time doing a job like this anyhow. Even the taping with Gell should be done just a little different then with paint..... Stuff like that. It has been a REAL learning experience and I am glad for it. Most of what is really pissing me off is around the drives and such. I also over tightened the exhaust tips today and cracked the gell just a bit Oh well Live and learn. I will not to it on the other side that is for sure!!!! It will be a easy fix over the winter.

I don't know Jon. I'm thinking that you really could do a better job. I'd recommend pulling the engine and painting the bilge a different color.
