progress, I think I've done it. One week and no section is totally flat. Hard to tell if there are some very tiny leaks but nothing that will fire off the soapy water.

and another big day. A bunch of pizza and 12 lineman from my alma mater and it went over in a big hurry. These two might be able to help flip it back in another 10 years.

This time it only took 5 guys and 6 pizzas

Next small detail is getting it back on the trailer. It's a roller trailer so maybe I can winch it on. I just don't want to hurt the new body work. Otherwise I have to wait a couple weeks while my buddy with the tractor gets back from getting married and honeymoon.

A momentous day today. My Zodiac outboard bracket arrived. I never thought I would find one and building one wasn't going to be fun. But here it is with the fuel tank I picked up also.

This will hopefully save me weeks or months it would have taken to fabricate one in my buddies spare time. And he just got married, bought a ranch, and it working to move his new wife's business up here....

Looks like you're going to be set up for twins!
(I know previously that you had mentioned going with a big single)
