Stopped by the Boat yard today and they had the ignition switch installed, the digital gauges installed and the throttle installed in the console and were hooking everything up in back at the motor. Should be done tomorrow or Saturday morning.

Very good looking console! If you got little kids/grand kids they could play all day flipping switches and turning knobs!

The motor installation is complete, steering and gauges are installed and the trailer bunks have been adjusted. A couple of small issues. First the knob on the steering will came off due to a defective weld. WIll have to figure out who can weld the interior bolt back on to the steering wheel or come up with an alternative solution. The spare tire holder does not provide enough clearance for the tire to be mounted while the boat is on the trailer, rendering it ineffective. Again, trying to figure a workaround.

The boat just barely fits in the garage now that the motor is installed after moving some stuff around to give it some extra room. I definitely will not be able to walk around the rear of the boat anymore.

The adjusted bunks make the boat look way better on the trailer.

Tom, I believe the power tech propeller that the local folks are recommending is the MQF3R19PYM90. How does that mesh up with your preliminary thinking?

Jordy, your boat looks incredible, and finished in only 1 year, pretty impressive. I've enjoyed following your build, and look forward to seeing it in person one day, possibly at the October meet. Also looking forward to reports on performance, I know it will exceed all expectations. Mike

Still got a bunch of fairing, sanding, priming, painting, and installation of hardware to complete. It is almost done. Could be used for performance testing if necessary, but probably will not run tests until everything is finished.

Look for a “wheel spacer” to move the spare further out from the frame. Pretty common in off-road and small car customization to allow wider wheels.

Browndog the MQF is the same as the Mercury Black Max and is pretty much a straight forward prop with out much rake or cup. I was thinking of the RED3 http://www.ptprop.com/index.php?page=shop. _details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=63&category_id=24&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=46 the NRS3
http://www.ptprop.com/index.php?page=sh ... &Itemid=46
the PTR3 http://www.ptprop.com/index.php?page=sh ... &Itemid=46

These are the three I am thinking of for you. It will depend on what you are going to use your boat for. They will all work, but the Red3 is probably the best all around prop of the 3. A 19 pitch would be fine if your on the light side of my weight calculations. We will know for sure when we get the final weight calculations done.
