Believe me, I know. I was doing the same thing as you and ended up putting a transom in it.
Cool boat though. Keep at it!

I did the same exact thing your doing last winter at about the same time. Refreshed the engines and boosted them up a bit, cleaned the bilge, added hydraulic steering, etc. It was a lot of work, then I had trouble with the engines all summer. Only ran the boat about 18 hours total, and missed the NYC Poker Run. A bearing went and I had hardly any oil pressure in the left engine...pulled the motor back out and sent it back (warranty). Now were just putting them back in, but I am definately keeping my fingers crossed. Good luck to you...I love that boat.
