Looks like fun! You may want to put a bilge plug in between the forward bilge and the e/r when you clean that up. Keep the funk out of the cabin along with any odors.

To quote one of my favorite movies:"remember, you wanted this".

Did you install an additional bilge pump in the cabin then? Wouldn't this reate a danger of water in front with no pump?

and yes I did which is why I haven't started cussing and throwing stuff yet just drinking lots :beergood: :drunk:

I don't know but I think the First Mate should be elevated to Admiral. This is 39 years of wedded bliss talking!
I put on 8 new motor mounts, after 20 years they were shot.

Couldn’t afford to do all 8. Did the two that had to be done to get alignment right. Didn’t pull the motor or all would have been done

Changed the oil. Port motor filter had a date on it. 2012 :banghead: :censored:

All good now though. Everything is working as it should
