    So after caping the sides and removing the pod on the deck it was time to start repowering this thing
    After Talking to my freind (Josh who is siting in the boat) for it would be easy to put a 550 jet ski motor and pump in to it (easy)....... after geting a jet ski and traking it apart found I would have to shorten the pump shaft to fit so we got to here.

    Well after that it was time for new stringer and motor mounts, so I make some rails to put the motor mounts on, and a braket for the electrical box

    Lookin good, Art! Its allot of little suff, huh? Its come along ways so far.

    Im down for a mini run, only you guys will have to put up with my "whacker"! I am only going to dream of a jet in mine, I would love to have it jet powered, but too many other irons in the fire to tear apart a working boat.

    We should do a minimeet, but how far spread out is everybody with a mini? Since me and Art are in the NW then its only fair that we have the meet here!
