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
Not sure if your familiar with a product called "TEF-GEL, but we use it in my business here on the gulf coast exclusively for anti-size and thread lubricant to keep SS-bolts and nuts from galling. We even use a thin film of it on the flair and flair nuts for A/C flair fitting connections.
Really good stuff!

thank you,
been keeping an eye on yours as well, my boat has some spider cracks on the deck same location as yours (right at the fairing)
and my boat is cored there. i'm convinced it's the sharp turn in the glass rather than a more gentle curve.
like a sharp turn on a road thru a cornfield some where, every now and then there's a new set of skid marks going right off !

gmsinc,
thank you for the compliments, but in truth i'm just an amateur.
heading up to west marine today so i will try that teff gel thank you.

so my friend jeff, with permission,
driscoll's auto interiors malabar fl. specializing in hot rods, private airplane interiors, and boats. in business for close to 30 years.


the only request was keep the lightning bolts, it can have more seams than frankenstein, i don't care !
it's his calling card and in my opinion, the end result is awesome the material is nice,
it's really gonna pop once it get's installed. couldn't be more satisfied with the quality of work.

it's 6' 6" wide by 5' 4" long, all 1 piece so i guess that made it a pain, plus no staples in the nidacore.

painfully slow rigging, everything gets drilled, dry fit, masked off then 5200 or 4000 applied depending on where it's located.
every nut and bolt got a swipe of some special anti sieze lubricant called tef gel, that was recommended by member gcmsinc,
awesome stuff, everything goes together very smooth with it.

had help for some things this weekend because 1 person can't reach both sides of the nuts and bolts.
transom assembly almost went on until it was learned i have the wrong exhaust block off plate.

big reward tho, with the hatch and bolster installed it looks good, fits good and leaning the backrests at 6 -7 degrees make it
very comfortable to stand in w/ lots of leg room and room for footrests. the back rests are w/ in 1 inch of the original height
and have 2 inch foam on them now. calling the bolster a win.

alot is going on and getting done but they come apart alot easier and faster than they go back together, so it's painfully slow but moving

^^^^^^^ thank you, wish mine was going as fast as yours !

here's a day, 24 holes drilled for ---- 4 snaps, 18 nuts and bolts, 8 are back out so i could 610 the big holes for the steering column.
so 16 and 4 snaps are in w/ 4000 and 2 have 5200.

homemade backing washers where their needed behind the dash, front gas tank bumpstops are in,
and the fill / vent cutout got 2 layers of 1700.

steering and grab handle can go either port or starb, the throttle assy is reversible.
have the option of either 2 single function sticks, or the dual function w/ trim button that's installed.
they all use the same bolt holes.

floor opens up a mile, should be able to put the tank in without taking the floor out.

What diameter pipe did you use for rigging tubes? Any goals for a splash date? Warm weathers around the corner.

made a 24 degree cradle/sled, it's flat side to side where the engine sits for sliding, wiggling and shimming into alignment.
in the pics, the engine is within 1/4 inch front to back of final install, and within a 1/4 below the correct elevation.
tomorrow the coupler goes on then i'll start shimming.

looks like the seastrainer can get mounted inboard on the starb stringer between the rear mount and starb tab pump.
also looks like the drive trim pump can get mounted inboard on port stringer between the rear mount and port tab pump.
both of which would go a long way keeping the rigging clean

meanwhile the 496 is getting some attention as well, once it's done and the boat is 100 percent ready for it, those pics
will go up.

( hint the complete remote oil filter head, oil cooler, pwr steering cooler, the air system, all lines and bracketry
along w/ the aluminum exhaust w/ stainless risers and bellhousing will be in the swap shop before this week is over )
