Yes the bolt patterns are the same, I made a cardboard template and matched them up that way. Very relieved as I didn't want to be drilling and filling the transom.

The teak came from a large shopping centre hand rail that was replaced with glass. It was 50 years old when I got it 10 years ago. I got a lot of it at the time, it was all going in a huge skip.

Yes Orwell Boy, i cut it all down so it was free to me, although there is £30 worth of epoxy holding it down and £100 worth of polymer sealant inbetween each plank serving as grout.

If i had to buy the timber i dont know whether i would have done it, there was so much waste to rip it down to the correct size for each plank. I does look good though and should last forever in that boat.

Well done ,that is real recycling ,what it should be ,i guessed it may have been ripping down a piece or two from the "shed " thats just so satisfying !,your post sparked me to look at prices of timber on ebay and my conclusion was "i must know somebody who has a chunk or two from yesteryear in their shed

Lovely build, keep up the great work.

Does your engine lift fully up with the rear chair in place?

Thanks, yes the outboard I took off went all the way up no problem. The reat seat is a good 350mm forward of the transom. Tomorrow I shall measure it.

Old outboard was a 60hp Mariner, replacement is a 90 Yamaha I think they are a similar size physically.

Great, thanks for that. I have an sr5.4 with a 60hp Mariner Bigfoot and would like a rear bench seat. Keep wondering if Iíll have room to trim the engine up though. Looks like I may well do though. 🤘🏻

You do see the teak from the other side, although the fuel tanks will be in there.

You have to write something here or it won't load.

A picture tells a thousand words...

Work is progressing nicely on my refurb.

The engine, so far, seems good and starts on the touch of key.

But I am wondering about the water stream from the cowling.

It generally pee's water like a Grand National Winner which is great but it carries on after I switch off the engine. Why is this?

This is the 3rd Yamaha 2 Stroke outboard I've had and probably the 10th outboard I've owned and I don't remember any of the doing this. It does it on both headphones and when it in a bucket.

Hi James, great to hear from you.

It's not draining, it's still under pressure and peeing.

Great idea to meet up, I'd love to show you the boat.

Where do you launch?

Toby

As above mine does quite a bit of water to drain, I ran mine yesterday very cold day first time I'd seen water not coming out until the termostat opened nearly stopped it then the penny dropped

How much pressure? Dont forget itll be gravity fed so will seem like a lot. I keep the boat on a mooring. I now work for Chichester Harbour Conservancy.

The boat looks amazing btw. Loving the teak etc. had not seen that until today

I might be wrong, but I think there is pressure building up there somewhere in the water jacket system.

When I'm confident all is well I'll bring it down to Chichester.

A burn out together would be great fun. Where could I launch it?

Good to hear from you.

Toby
