That would be a big lathe. I gave my ski post a quick polish last year and plan to give it a complete polish this spring. I have a chemical sealer somewhere on a shelf. I will have to dig that out and see if I can use it on the ski post.

Holy nuts! What the heck happened to that tracking fin? They cost a ton of money from places like Eberts and Glen-L. Hard to find random tracking fins for sale. You may see if your friend at the machine shop can get it straightened and get out the bumps.

Hey Skipper, It was that way when I bought the boat but I didnt think it was that bad untill I took it off. I will take it in and see what can be done to fix it. If anything I will do my best and put it back on. If it is a little bent it shouldn't hurt any thing will it??

I took the bad tracking fin to the machine shop this morning. I asked if they could make a new one with the CNC. They said "Yes" but then Ed (my friend) spoke up and said I can make a sand casting of a good one( I have 2 good ones) . I think a casting of the fin would be better. Now it is time to wait and see what he comes up with on the new casting. He will make one this weekend. I will get some pic's.

Seat locking pin

Here are some pic's of the part we cut out of brass. I is a much longer shaft and alot easyer to get to when you need to move your seat back or forward. We made the end of shaft threaded and we cut a handle to fit. It works verry well and no more fighting for that little ball justto move the seat.

I talked to Tim C. ( from OJPROP'S) today on how the other parts are comming along for the boat. He said he will have them done the second week of Feb. I am ready to get the motor and trans back in the boat. Tim also put me intouch with Marine Machine based out of Grand Rapids Michigan to get the double end coupler made and a new drive shaft. I will keep you posted.

I found the center steering wheel cover. It was all black so I added some color to it.
