i did put it in gear just to see if the transmission worked and got a metallic banging sound. i quickly turned it off. I will try it on a lake soon to see if it still makes the MC hammer sound...

Metallic knocking???? Better check the prop nut and make sure it's tight. The squeel is most likely the strut bushing being dry like No1 said.
I checked the nut, it tight. the sound was hopefully coming from the fact that there was no pressure on the prop like it would be in water. I'm almost ready to take her out. I need to wire up the Motorhome so the reverse signal goes to trailer.

Question While cleaning I noticed this Safety issue...Pics



The previous owner said I should always use the rope to tie the boat don, but the boat is not far forward enough? He also delivered the boat without any rear straps. I bought some today but what do i do know...lol

(I thought i would ask first before i drop the boat or something...)

Got it---->





All fixed and it looks like this:



Yes that nut on the bottom was used replacing the rod to the rudder...

You should put it on the trailer far enough to engage the Boat Buddy (the gray plastic covered part with the steel pin that's supposed to go through the bow eye and snap closed. Trailering straps are cheap but you should use them at the stern, too.

While at the MC dealer I picked up Safety Lockout

looks like this...



i still need to make a cable for it, instead of the wire tie

Yep, I'll be removing the Nickle and tape soon...

Also, I checked the master cylinder and topped it off with some dot 4. it was about a pint low! DOH!
