I hope we get to see you guys soon.
Let me know been a long time!

Update.....as of today (5/18/2023) the Stainless Marine engine bracket is finished and being shipped to me....Finally we can start getting this boat back together. It will take some time as I am changing a bunch of the rigging setup that was in the boat originally, changing gauges, painting the deck, and fixing some minor chips on the bottom of the boat. Hoping for a June 30th completion...we will see. I will add photos as me move forward.

Chris, you are going to love the Stainless bracket compared to the Gils. I did the same thing on my 33 Sonic years ago and it was so much better. The flotation it adds to the stern and characteristics of getting on plane will be drastically improved. I like what you are doing.
BTW, did you sell the 225 ProMaxes already?

Charlie, yes I’m excited for the changes. I’ve heard a ton of positives regarding the stainless bracket. Those old Gill brackets had to go. The one 225 block was toast. The other is still at Dave’s shop in Florida and I’ll get back from him shortly. So I’ve got one 225 newly rebuild power head which is definitely for sale.

Looks good! I had issues with those SM access covers leaking on my previous boat. I was going to install a one way drain plug but I ended up not keeping the boat.

BTW, I heard that Specialized was for sale. That would be a cool boat to own too!

Dave, I also heard Specialized was for sale. That would be a cool boat to own for sure. Hope you’re doing well.
