There will also be a stamp on the transmission to determine gear reduction or not. Will say 1.52:1 or 1:1

Started the tear down process this afternoon on this crisp 100* day. Got all the floors out to better assess the stringers. As I got to digging in it was clear that someone had attempted to patch the floor before when I saw saw marks down the outer stringers. Luckily it must have been in the last few years because the wood is still solid and it makes saw dust instead of saw mush. Might be able to save them but the inside stringers are totally gone.

Hopefully pulling the engine tomorrow and getting the rest of the carpet off so I can get to cleaning up and getting stringer surgery going.

For the record it isn't a powerslot trans.

Yeah I should be able to have it back in the water in another 2 weeks or so.

Actually the jaguar is going to be my potential tow rig. I'm going to paint it the same scheme as the boat too. It has a v8 and plenty of towing capacity as supports a 150lb tongue weight so I figured what the hell.

Mounts are cut out and got them sanded today. My help to lay down the glass wasn't around and that's not really a one man operation. Hopefully tomorrow.

I am no pro with the fiberglass by any means but it is my understanding that you will need to grind the areas where you are bonding the fiberglass to the existing poly with 36 grit grinding wheel. Just a word of caution, I would hate for you to spend the time that is involved and not get a proper bond. Looking Good! Looking forward to more pictures, good luck.
