Well I have hardly touched the boat in the last week or so, but I did make up my mind on the motor support and picked up this..



I listed the other bracket for sale cheap and have someone wanting to pick it up tomorrow. I know I will be much happier with this one. Now to just find a motor to put on it.

I'm betting you will be a whole lot happier. The boat will certainly look better.

Yup, just a bit. Will be worth it though for the savings over a new one.

So another busy weekend with not a lot of progress on the boat. My main focus when I have a few mins lately has been putting together a supply list for wiring, pumps, lights and anything else I can think that I'll need to finish up. It's about time to spend some more money.

 I did however manage to get the bracket sandblasted down and sprayed a coat of primer on it. Once I settle on a motor I will get the matching color sprayed on.





Looked almost new once I got all the old paint and silicone off of it.

Oh, I also still have the old fiberglass bracket if anyone has any use for it. Someone was supposed to come get it but never did. $200 and it's yours.

Ordered a truckload of stuff last night that should keep me quite busy for a while. All the wiring, rubrail, lights, switches, and a bunch of other misc things. I will say I enjoy shopping for boat stuff more than grinding glass!

I also have an eye out for a motor and trailer if anyone has or knows of one. Thanks

I find rigging the boats to be one of the most fun parts. It is a whole bunch of fun to order parts and then button up all systems that will become what makes the boat great. Lighting has always been fun for me, installation comes with the immediate gratification of knowing you got it right. Good luck on the motor and trailer hunt. Both of those things seem to be a whole bunch easier to acquire down there than up here.

Mike,

What did you have in mind for power. I am finding myself scanning for all things these days and will keep an eye out if I see something that suits you.

My first choices right now are a Yamaha or Suzuki 150. I thought about going brand new but there are quite a few used ones around. Problem is most people seem to think they are still new when pricing them.. Thanks for looking out

It is exciting to see the end. Though I would be a little more motivated to get out there and work on it if we could get out of the 90s every day. I do love summertime but I'm about ready for a break

Once you get it rigged and an engine on it, there are still plenty to do to be finished. I still have a few, like get my old cover modified to fit the new configuration of the boat (added 8" offset of the engine), badges, etc.  I still need to buy a trolling motor that I built the support (both structural and electrical) into my rebuild. The one I planned is like $1800. now.

For sure, Rick. I have a feeling that the punch out list is going to be pretty significant.

I did manage to get back out there a bit this weekend and got the console and leaning post installed. It only took a few hours but it was nice to be back on the boat, and it looks like I actually did something.





The pile is growing by the day as well!



About the only things that I have left to buy are the motor and trailer. I'm got a few in mind so hopefully that will be purchased soon as well.
