That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    I pulled the engine out and have it on a stand I made that will bolt right to the dyno frame. All the electronics and fuel system are on it too. I made a cart that goes under it and there are fork slots in the bottom too.
    It will go on the dyno at More Power in Sparta in another week or so.



    I think I'm going to sand and flow coat the floor in the boat.
    I did some small areas before with West system epoxy and it dried real shiny and smooth.
    Any negatives to putting epoxy over fiberglass ?
