Default HART THROB resto / upgrade

theres some buttoning up of a handful of things before the hole cutting starts.
before we start here, i wanted to thank some people.

steve abott who built and raced the boat back in 96, sold and trusted me to take care of it.

glass dave who's threads posts and advice to me and many many others who did there own work is what got me this far.

class 6 who offered some good ideas along the way and made me a custom 3 foot long alingment tool and who is making me some custom exhaust tails for the cmi 496 plus 6 exhaust that's on it's way. he does some very good and unique fabrication, welding and machining of custom parts.

many other oso members who's build threads / race boats / etc. etc. and those who asked and answered posts over the years.

heres what it looked like the first week it came home

thanks,
the engine hatch was extended about 21 1/2 inches , it's 65 inches long and 75 1/2 inches wide.
the engine room from transom to bulkhead / firewall is 64 3/8 inches long @ crank cl.
it's bigger than the cabin under the cockpit of my old sea ray

Default the dash

the dash was v shaped and had an aluminum cap on it, and parts of the deck unerneath it were cut out to rig it.

i bonded in a nearly full beam piece of ply with a filler piece in the middle so the face of the dash was flush.
the ply was pre drilled so after the back side was ground flat 2 layers of ounce and a half mat went on the ply
and it got screwed on, the screws got removed and holes filled a few days later.

the cutouts were cleaned up and then cut divinycel for them as well as the hatch opening and f1 style dash.
gauges and indicators go in the center part of the dash.

i have an idea to put basically bow flags on the dash w/ the blue and stars in the center and stripes going outward

Default engine room and transom

engime room isn't finished, some grinding and glass but all the holes are doweled and glassed. paint will happen after the alignment is
set and the rigging is figured out and the new holes drilled.

the electric hydraulic and steering goes back where they were, theres about 20 pics of the original rigging along with notes
about the various clamp sizes and locations.

1 of the bilge pump overboards was put half on a bulkhead fillet and didn't tighten flush, so this was one of the
many little details that got some attention
