Can't believe it's been so long since last update in July. I lost my job in September and had to slow down on the boat. But I'm back with some progress. I have the engine assembled and in the boat. I'm going to be adding pulleys and alternator, the. Start to run wiring so I can run just the engine to break it in.

Just read it again from the beginning. Do not stop! Love this project. Is your uncle still around? Taking him for a spin would be sweet!

Yes he is still around, I saw him at a recent family reunion last summer and we talked. He hit me up for a ride. I keep in touch with him when I go to Port O' Conner and sometimes I pick his brain when I get stuck on something.

Thanks for the words Jeff, I have a job right now just to bring in some money for bills and stuff. But I will be back into my field shortly.

Been a bit again but I'm still at it.
I did find a job, been hard at it for two months. Managed to get the exhaust on and front pulleys. It's slowly getting there. I have the heat exchanger in and will try to install it this weekend
