Thanks, its been really fun for the most part.

Ive gotten more work done. Im hoping to do a trial run on the river on friday, just do some testing, boats not nearly done. Installed fuel tank sending unit, But, I did install the swim platform for motivation. Used 5200 marine sealant. Here are some shots.





And I picked up the drivers seat. The image is smooshed, Im not sure why.



All the interior is being done in simple white. Im going for function over looks anyway.

Wish me luck tomorrow to tie some loose ends up and see if she floats on Friday!

Looking good! Hope everything goes well with the trial run.. Are you going to the Flint?

Got my carb rebuilt, water/fuel separator has arrived. All new fuel hose, vent, and fill hose should arrive tomorrow. Siphoned out fuel in the tank, then removed tank for a clean and pressure wash. Putting it all back together tomorrow. Fingers crossed, I hope to get on the water this weekend.

Well, I got more stuff done! Got the passenger cushions back, they look nice and feel really nice. Installed bilge, and blower. Still need a blower hose. I built a steering cable bracket, but need to adjust it. Its a temp bracket, i wanna use the boat and I will replace it with one out of aluminum soon.

And, I took her on her maiden voyage! Heres the video. Ran well without any issues. Ive been running the motor in the drive way quite a bit. On this run, I took it up to 2500 rpm. Im ready to get skiing!

Carpet, and finalizing the interior is next. Windshield as well. Ill be taking the boat down to the Suwannee river next weekend to do some skiing if everything goes to plan. Ill be doing more testing until then.
