Update 8/20

Well back from dropping son off at college. Big Day. Took time to sit back and try to prioritize the next steps. So 1) had to adjust trailer ASAP cause it isn't a M/C trailer and the boat was maladjusted and boat had weight on the the front skeg as well as bout 1000 lbs on tongue weight, so plugged the rudder hole and took her to the boat ramp. Dropped her in., some leaking around shaft packing (no surprise there) and everything else held. So back on the trailer and all is now set up more correctly. 2) Spent rest of the afternoon, cleaning and stripping the rest of the stuff out. BLACK CREEK- One panels busted , one holding together. But its not very study- Will most likely cut them anew. Bought a Porter Cable buffer and started to figure out best foam pads , compound etc to use. 3) Called Viper to start the quote process for the interior. Received several endorsement and we will see if its possible. 4) Next challenge- Get the prop off, coupling separated and shaft out. Then 5) continuing to do research on the engine part. I'm pretty handy but thinking new whole shebang turn key- any suggestions are appreciated. MAXPOWER220- Sent PM to get phone number. polished the front so people will quit bugging me about how back it looks. That wasy they can see the potential. All for now.
