Yeah, right... Got a parachute?

It'd be interesting to know how well the transom stands up to this kind of abuse. Is it me or is the hull bowing under the weight of the engine on the stern rollers?

I think I saw that the first time around, not sure all the mistakes have been found yet.

"Enough" and "Good Luck" both seem right though!

That one has been on there for ages. I looked at it for a moment and then decided that the transom would fall off it pretty quick even if i'd put a smaller engine on it
