I said "hit" the water.. but I was a little premature with that statement.... I have a few more things to do....... The transom is missing all the hardware bolting it to the aluminum.. and that wood really needs painted... #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o so I think I will pull the engine today so I can paint and fix that shit up right... :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$

soon... soon we will take it out to highline for a test run.... \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

it's actually a 70 mustang color.. The one I painted last fall.... told me the wrong color and we ended up with about 2 gallons of this... "extra" Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink

So yesterday I got the wood sanded and filled some imperfections... Then I epoxied the whole thing, about 4 coats, like primer.... Let it dry last night, got up this am and sanded it with 180.... da 180.. and then put one more coat of epoxy on it, like sealer, and a bunch of single stage over that... =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> I will RTV the crap out of it and in the screw holes around the outside etc... then put the screws back in securing it.. I better let it dry a few days... That engine had really dug into the wood.. :-k :-k :-k :-k I think I will break a peice of aluminum to go down the outside over the wood... Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink

^^^^^^^^^ Yup,and put a safety cable attached to the motor and a strong point on the boat hull. That way when the clamps loosen and the motor comes off.....it won't sink to the bottom of the lake. :-#
