I think your boat looks great. I just wish that I could afford all the work. I seem to only be able to screw it up when I try to do the work.

Thanks y'all, almost done with her. Took it out last night and had a blowout and the motor kept backfiring out of the flame arrestor? Is that common for engines that have been sitting? Hopefully it's not a valve issue. I hate taking the exhaust manifold off. The pylon will probably remain janky, I've got a fly high pole that goes over it. I still need to put the underwater LEDs on and some new gauges and probably by then it'll be back to motor work lol

If you backfired through the carb, you have most likely blown your power valve- unless you have done the update. Pull the bowl, remove the power valve and check it out. Then check the routing of your plug wires. If they all go to the correct holes in the proper order, check the timing. Hopefully on of those issues and not a flat cam.

I'm sorry, I haven't the slightest clue what a power valve is. Could you fill me in?

Can't wait to see the finished project! Just a suggestion: even though you plan to use a fly high I would redo the pylon now while you are working on the boat (will make it easier to sell)
