I have been so busy at work that my transom assemblies are still in my garage. They will be droped off Monday to be sand blasted along with the rest of the black parts that hang off the transom.
The boat should look like new this year when it hits the water. I hope to paint the pieces next weekend and then put it all togeather.

Steve, got the bearings at Lane. $37 out the door. Valako had a set of HP bearings he said he'd sell me for a good price, but even spending $20 in gas to go to Lane's, I came out quite a bit ahead.

It's all buttoned up. Need to put the crank pully on, flywheel, bell housing, carb, and then light it off. It will be IN the boat tomorrow afternoon. I'll have to do the rigging at home in the driveway.

Mike, you going to need the brainbox? I'll run it to you in the morning if you need it. Sorry about the bearing deal. I'll make it up to you. I'm assuming you've got all the test-run gear from Dyno.

The boat's been sitting in the driveway for two weeks now and I still haven't been able to touch it.
The weekend I got the boat out of storage I went on OT (65hrs/wk) so by the time I get home it's to late to start anything. OT should be done by next weekend so I will have some time then.


Foul ,
What's taking so long ?!?!? You just had to do a ring and fling right ?
I had to change a oil pump (something stuck the bypass open) last year , started at 8:00am and (the drive was already off) and was in Muskamoot bay by 3:00.
I know what your going thru , it seems like when your pressed for time , everthing goes wrong.
Good luck and I hope you make it to LOTO.
