I wasnít planning on it Dan. Iíve always ran one and kept a spare in the cabin with enough hose to throw over the side in the unlikely event the main pump failed. Do you have a plan Dan? 🙂

Heath, Challenger has a 440 six pack in it. It will be awesome to see color on that boat. Are you still searching for a radar arch?

I finally broke down and ordered some aluminum, a friend of mine is getting the sheet cut to size as well as the plate on the bottom and the tubing. The hard to find part is the (about) 13Ē radius elbows. It took a long time to find those. Hope to get the material here in the next few weeks and get that tacked together. Also looking forward to paint. This is 4 years coming lol

Havenít got as much done the last week or so. Billy got the transmissions painted. Got the bellhousings, trannys, and drivelines put together. I had to get my friend to machine the transmission plates to fit the arneson driveline/double u joints. Iím gonna be slow for a few weeks. Hernia operation in one week. Itís gonna be a lot of fun.

Have several friends who've had hernia op's, just make sure you rest up properly before attempting too much.

We can wait for more updates while you recover.
