    Oh, forgot, you have V-drives so have different Tabs than I do with Bravo 3's. Mine are Bennetts, 12" so we're talking apples to oranges? Of course mine is leaking after I put some down force on it accidentally..

    The clean tab is from our 23', different size/set up. Both work excellent.

    NMEA 2000 Bennett trim tab upgrade done, was a little worried about the electronics end but lowrance made it a cake walk. I used the longer set of indication rods in the old pistons.

    Hard to see the point with the boat on its' side, but probably a good idea to stay off the water without a steering wheel on the bridge.

    1982 28' Long Cabin "Molly Brown" anticipating late Spring before early Summer as temperatures are rising. SUP paddlers are starting to come back.

    Note to self: turn boat right side up before launch.

    Manifolds drilled and tapped for full fresh cooling, treated with ospho/phosphoric acid. Should have done a pre treat/post treat picture, the acid wash almost makes them look like they got a coat of primer.

    Read about an “epoxy in” composite bearing that I want to look into so next time it can just be heated and slipped out. Even with heat and penetrating oil that thing was in there!

    Wow, nice press you made! Beats the redneck way I did it, sawzall and a cold chisel. Great work!

    If anyone needs to borrow it to pull a prop or a cutless it’s available. Weak point was the split piece of steel, upgraded it to a piece of dom I machined and now the weak point is the 5/8 all thread.

    I know it’s easier with the shaft out but I really didn’t want to do that... again.

    Made a switch panel out of aluminum, and here are the bezel labels I found custom on eBay. Started to make it out of 18g stainless but let’s just say that thickness is a pain with crappy drill bits...
