Do it all except rebuild engines.... I'll pull them and put them back in, after attempting a rebuild, discovered it wasn't for me. Love working on them!

If I did everything(engines inclusive) I'd do it wrong.
I'll do minor stuff. But now I have to pitch stuff out to get done, cuz if i spend any more time tinkering... she'll leave me.
Somehow she notices me missing, more than she notices the $ missing.

I picked little stuff....but get a bit more involved in that. I've done everything on motors except bottom end. If it came to that, I'd hire it out.....no time or facilities to get in that deep. I had to take 2 days off to redo the top end last year...just annoyed me that those were 2 days i could have been on the water, if i paid someone a little $$ to do it. And, yes, of course they were 2 90 degree days.

I do pretty much most of it except internal engine/drive repairs. In my exhaust swap over after Gusman got the manifolds on I completed it including the silent thunder box removal and all the patching.

I don't have the tools to get into the real "invasive" stuff. Everything else I can pretty much handle.
