Finally Got It In The Water
« on: September 08, 2017, 07:03:59 PM »
Still have a ways to go but it felt really good to try it out. Had this thing for over 10 years & I have either not had the money, time, or both to fix er' up. Over the last couple of years I have had a little of both & have made a lot of progress. Still have some smaller things to do like install the wind shield, glove box door, small trim work here & there. Oh & then there is the trailer I had to purchase. It still needs to be painted. Might tackle that over winter.
New engine is running great except for the Holley 4 barrel still needs some adjusting. If I can get it set correctly all there is to do next summer is enjoy the thing!
Already getting some compliments... "that's a great looking old boat!" Hard to believe it is going to be 40 years old.

Lookin' good, glad to see you got her back in the water!  What made the decision to use folding fishing seats in lieu of the usual captains chairs or a solid bench across the back?

I'd like to ask how the stringer outdrive is working for you. They can be a "problem child". The build looks fantastic!!
I said, GIVE ME THE ROPE!
