    It is amazing what a little elbow grease and some hyseas boat soap will do[​IMG][​IMG]

    If you take that kicker bracket off you might have enough room to put your kicker right on the transom.

    It is deceiving from the picture, plus opted to get the tiller handle, bracket is coming off for sure, not going to trust the new one on there... I have solid mount coming ,

    I probably have few chipped props you can have Jeff just as spares there from my envinrude same vintage... That motor cowling looks like my 89 VRO I had... You look like you have the manual tilt one as well... If you get some extra cash if you put a roof on it look like different boat.....

    Your boat would look sweet with an oversize canvas on it.. I paid 1600-1700 for the entire thing, poles, slope back, and it came with an additional drop down curtain... P4182598.jpg

    Looks like you could get a few inches more head room under the existing canopy by moving the center support up the rail a bit? Although if you have side windows it would impact the fit.

    Is that wire tinned? I picked up some PICO wire at Lordco and the label specifically said "boat wire". It's quite a bit more expensive.

    I picked up 25' of red n yelllow #8 tinned they were out of black in # 8, all my battery cable is also tinned wire.. Does 100% of the wire have to be tinned? I i figged 14 gauge would be good enough for anything with not much of a load,both my deeplines have pre-made harnesses with tinned wire also...lots to go in yet.. [​IMG]
