You haven't met my 3 wrecking crew boys yet LOLI'm selling this as a kit and I believe they have a 150hp to bolt on. The transom is rugged but it's easier to over build it now than repair it later, once the knee's are all fastened and glassed into the bottom, stringers, and transom then glassed again into the deck...she'll stay.
Looks really nice.
Are you still going to build the engine well?
Is the hole in the deck a standard size for a deck hatch?
Does the fuel fill hose get closed in?
Looks too pretty to give to the boys LOL
