Lol! The yellow really does look awesome.

Ill never forget the day after I got mine painted, there were two big bubbles under the paint that formed while drying that looked like tumors that really pissed me off

Nice neat wiring and rigging. Certainly a project to be proud of!

Thanks guys
appreciate the moral support, the last push was tough.
A week ago i was ready to part it out, the aggravation mellowed into just getting rid of the engine
Today its running, fingers crossed the fun work of testing and propping it can get started.

I don't get it either! why so close to the end you would want to part it out? i can lend you my untouched chriscat project so you can remember what you have been thru and I'M sure you will suddenly say , hell ! I'm almost boating so just keep it up !!!

Nothing really happened, it was the last few items and several small details that needed ironing out all the while
soaking wet with sweat, slipping and sliding all over the boat, constantly wiping everything down
followed by about 4 oz of power steering fluid that squirted out of the cap all over me and the floor
while turning the steering wheel on my knees.
Getting in and out a hundred times for a metric deep well, what i was supposed to be installing
or to get dry clothes towels and more water
4 1/2 days of looking for an electrical problem that didnt exist, i left the big 'go no where' wire harness
On the top of the engine off and it wouldnt start. In fact now im wondering if the ground ring on it should attached
it looks like it was.

All my fault, but today with a hose in a 5 gallon gas tank on a ladder next to the boat the engine
is running smooth, sounding good, pumping water very well and has good throttle response.

Boat is looking great! All you have left is the the fun but annoying stuff. Much better to cean oil and Chase wires than grind and sand glass all day
