What Work did you do on your Mastercraft Today?

Finally got my exhaust system renewal done. I don't think it had been touched in 29 years! It has new risers, new paint on the manifolds, all new gaskets, new hoses and clamps. Now I just have to run it and check for leaks. Might do that today. Of course being an old boat it threw some stuff at me along the way. One of the manifolds now has four helicoils in it. It was the one with the bad riser gasket leak.
Edit. Ran it today. On the hose. No leaks. Yay.

Finished my wax job. Two coats on the hull and I think I my top speed will increase by 2-4 mph as I have such a shine in place the water won't actually touch the hull,lol. Seriously, I do not plan to pull my prop before storage and some say to "grease the stainless shaft". I have not done this in years past but what would I use and how thick?

I use "Antiseize" compound whenever I re-install a prop. They seem to come back off a little easier.
