Default Never again, probably !

So a while back i was all geared up to sand the bottom of the race boat (see other thread) to chase down a 1/2 mile an hour.
all of the sudden it occured to me this thing runs great, it met all my expectations, i love it and the absolute last thing i want to do is take things to far and go all crazy pulling strings and setting up water levels, this of course would have happened after it was partially derigged and off the trailer, because i could see getting carried away with it.
(self admission of stupidity). Thankfully none of that happened, and that thread will get an update next week or so

then stupid kicked back in, this followed me home and it went all plumbbob waterlevel and string pulling



Bear with me theres about 100 pics coming

Swear to god 50 pounds of grinding dust was swept out, probably another 20 blew all over the neighbor hood

Didnt come with the engine/pylon mount, stupid kept rearing its ugly head.


Temp tabbed in just to set width because of engine/pylon mount connection with the easy bake oven measurometer and 3 layer 1708 thickness test.
