Well finally got the motor back in the boat and fired up last night. Just need to weld bungs on valve covers for breathers and she should be ready.

Added some tie down hooks to the trailer. Previous owner said he never ran rear straps but I definitely prefer to.

I got the u bolts from Amazon, only 10 bucks for 2. CP and west marine wanted like 15 each. And they are stainless. The stringer washers I got from summit for like 1.40 each.

Thanks bud, you've got some great looking floats yourself.

Got up this morning and installed some new hoses and got them sorted out with some trick dividers from Earls Performance

Finally got it back from KMG... very pleased with the work he did... the fade on the deck is nuts in person... looks like the stripes are floating on top.
