would be great if you dug up some pics of yours, did yours have a cabin as well as the cockpit bathtub.
powering mine with a 496 mag ho, X is 17 9/16 square method, so prop should be at 4 1/4, and i'd be happy
if it ran a well mannered 70, with a mirage plus (pitch to be determined)
go up to 181/2 planes off no problem

the transom is already cut.
2 layers of 1700 around the opening and it starts to go back together.

Default glassing the cutout

after 4 days the patch was cut out and the hole cleaned up, the transom assembly went on for a look see, and i think there is
enough wiggle room to ensure it goes on plumb and on center once it goes on for good.
so while the weather is good might as well glass it.

when the cut out got it's hot coat the bolt holes were taped off and all 8 got filled with 635 epoxy
10 minutes later the tape got pulled and mess cleaned up.

the cutout got 1 layer of 1700 in 635 epoxy, the second layer just made a mess, so it had to come off.
if it's critical the opening needs another layer i'll grind and put another layer on, anyone ?

good spot, the steering arm gets cut off.

hardware for engine mounts won't be here till the 10th -11th, so all the little side jobs are on deck
plus i think upholstery will be done today, early next week at latest.

hey, it's january, we had a couple weeks of sub 70 degree weather and it might have rained 4 times this month !

bilge is all painted and ready, all transom thru holes got epoxy soaked.

kplanes, backing plates, backing washers, imco driveshaft, battery box, and misc. stuff all painted
floor and tank bumpstops, etc all the hardware is here and on deck.

went to nut and bolt company today, got everything but 4 bolts

went to hydraulic company today, brought in a pipe plug and h20 sensor, said i needed a reducer
the guy never picked it up, just went in back and brought out the correct part.
obviously i found the right place, they make lines and have every fitting you could ever want,
even tho i have no idea what it is, but jic, an, npt, swivels quick disconnects, you name it.

ordered the gas tank today, 65 gallon bolt in, .125 thick t-5052 h32 marine aluminum, no idea what that all means,
w/ 2 1/2 pick ups, and a mechanical sight gauge
some special non carbon insulating hi density rubbery something and all neccessary hardware, hoses etc.
not the 3/8 supply hose, i'll get that local.

the transom assy, drive, exhaust, all of it in the house, stacked up / lined up ready to go
can't wait till the house is a house again

so a couple errands for 610, 5200, 4200 and some more 4000 a another can of phantom black for touch
and some special antiseize and it can start getting assembled, weather permitting
