I also added some supports to the back of the t top. It had a little bit of a wag in the back when I would hit waves and this stiffened it up a lot. I guess that's part of working with what you find versus having things custom built.

Hey all. Well I've gotten a few hours behind the helm and so far so good. I've made a few small tweaks here and there and it is really getting dialed in now. I ended up changing props again this time to a 20 pitch four blade powertech and I think it's going to be the keeper. The other one was good but would slip a little more than I wanted especially around turns. This one has a little better bite and hole shot and actually added a few mph to the top end. I saw 42 on my first test run on a crappy cool day.

Took it out for the first real trial this weekend. Took advantage of the nice weather and ran from Bradenton down to Gasparilla. I averaged a 30-32 mph cruise at about 4700 rpms and 4.5 mpg with five people and 20-30 gallons of fuel.

Made it!

Ah, commit that placid picture to memory as the deck becomes covered in blood, sweat and scales. :ScrChin:

Enjoy!

Thought I might get an up close inspection of it on Sunday out at Passage key. But I realized as we got closer it was a Mako redone quite similar to yours.

I've gone now gone through this whole thread piece-meal. Beautiful work Mike.

I'll be doing the transom on my 19-1 very similarly to how you did yours.
