I don't understand why it's so difficult for me.

Any tricks os suggestions..

Thank DD
Frank,

Its easy for me to get it re-aligned because of the lines in the carpet. I set the motor box in place, lay down the floor piece and before I press it into place I line up the carpet lines. Also, the only screws I have are the ones attaching the motor box to the floor piece. Mine never had any screws attaching the floor so I am not aware if any go in there or not.

This picture kind of shows you how the carpet has lines from the back seat.

DD, those look sweet!

What did you use to get all the glue/gunk off?

I pulled the old speedo pickups off today and can't put the new ones on til I get all the glue off. The PO replaced one and think he used an entire tube of sealant on this one.

I tried soft scrub with a no-scratch pad but did not get much off.

Pulled the boat out today and was like, "wow, looked alot better when I put it in storage...lol"

Anyways, pulled the gas tank, drained the 2 gallons of gas and 5 gallons of stable.

Cleaned outside of the tank all around, check the exhaust hoses which were fine and put the tank back in place.

Wiped down the battery cables and re-installed batter. Anyone know where I can get one of the plastic pieces that you put on the top of the battery to secure it along with the 2 metal brackets that are held to the floor and then attached to the palstic piece?

Installed new A/C outlet behind steering wheel.

Removed old speedos and drilled holes for new speedos. Need to get remaining glue off before final epony.

Replaced exhaust flaps.

Cleaned out bilge and replaced wires going to alternator.


Up this week: paint pivot tongue, get bracket for safety chains, install driver seat and wash dghouse and replace.

I used mineral spirits to soften the crap, then I 'carefully' scraped it off with a puddy knife. Be careful...

Got both fuel filters replaced and got water pump with new seal reinstalled. Hope leaks are resolved when I fire it up soon.
