Looking really good, Phil. The freeboard of this boat always amazed me.
BTW: Yellow is now a premium paint choice, with most supplies stockpiled at Ray's :D

Thanks guys no engine pics yet it is just sitting here waiting to be disassembled and rebuilt I have a bottom end that I'm using to make the engine mounts and do the alignment. I'm going to build the deck up higher similar to the original it shouldn't look so wide and flat then.

I guess you're turning it into a crossflow ..... removing the plate and making dividers up to go into the head etc.
