    The boat got wrapped and ive been working inside. The bulkheads are filleted in , sistered a pc to the center bulk for strength and to help hold where the single exhaust will Y into and ive got a few layers of 1708 on the fuse box cutout on the house bulkhead. I tried to put one a large single sheet of glass where the motor cutout is, it didnt hold and all hell broke loose trying to deal with it, live and learn. 20171125_143008.jpg 20171129_102720.jpg 20171129_102758.jpg

    I pulled the clean-out port, prepped and polished it on the drill press.

    Also picked up a wheel on the cheap, turns out its 1" tapered instead of straight shaft but i really like it so i think ill have it bored and the keyway machined in if its not to much money

    And got this hauler and a hot coffee from a nice lady nearby, for a few bucks. i bench tested it and it works fine. Not sure the maker, and never seen one like this but it looks like an Electradyne with regard to the parts. Theres a little wobble between the gear and backplate that needs to be shored up, otherwise good shape. I polished the face plate too.

    How do these electric hauler get mounted on the bulk wall? Does the gear and drive get pulled off. Looks like the drive shaft gets pressed on

    Dang...that's one tightly enclosed boat wrap! Probably a lit pack of matches will heat it up now.
    Looking good! Back out to my leetle project now.

    Making some good progress and the ability to work "indoors" will sure help. I hope no fast moving plow trucks make a habit of throwing snow over the side of that bridge. :eek: Hopefully your boat is out of range for a slush party.

    Fiberglass dust is highly flammable and using an open flame heater like a torpedo heater in a small tented space like that can be really dangerous. A Pelonis radiant heater a better option and will do a great job heating the space and most of them run about $60 or so at HD.

    Thanks for the insight! Not much dust in confined winter work.
    Thank you.

    I missed the itch, so went ahead and removed the previous transom repair.

    Just some updates, not to much to see. Fuel line chase, engine cutout fairing

    I'm 99% sure the motor & gearbox are from Electa Dyne, look for the allen head set screws on the couplings. If you need parts just call Judy or Larry at ED they will fix you right up.

    At least you got something going. Thanks for the fix/update. Can't get my arse out into the boat with 7 degree weather.

    Worked on prepping the transom skin for reglassing 20180120_153820.jpg 20180120_141612.jpg
    And tried few ways to get the cutless out but no luck. And stripped a set screw in the process.
    So i pulled the housing, which was probably a good idea anyway, and ill do it on the bench

    But if you had a press you wouldn’t have had to engineer your contraption

    Close to laying out all the under deck items, then gelcoating up the bilge.
    Shaft and prop are ready for pickup from Hale Propeller
    Ill be installing the cutlass back into the tube tomorrow
    On the hunt for some decent $ seacocks and adding mounting pads for those
    Things feel like they are moving quicker with the project finally

    Frontier, I was mistaken about max tank size that will fit under the stern cap. Max is 106 gal not 90. Tank measurements as follows:
    106 Gallon - 72"W x 19"H x 17.5"D
    92 Gallon - 70"W x 18"H x 15 &7/8"D

    - Dave
