I normally don't create a new thread about my projects until they are begun. I am pretty excited to get this boat and motor to work on. They are still in Florida but I will be traveling down there on the 22nd to bring them home. The boat has no trailer, so meanwhile I will be working on a derelict trailer to bring it home on. The boat need a transom but the gel looks good in the pics, hope I can save it. My previous projects have all needed paint and all the wood replaced. Here are the "before" pics. This motor won't require any attention from me, fully restored. Usually I am fixing old junk.
