Wish it would say in the instruction, "if you need to ask how much, you should not build this boat" ? :shock:

Re: Arizona Gentry build ?

The board that links the 2 lower transom boards will be replaced with the transom blank. And to get the 13 deg. angle for the outdrive it is moved into the hull. The transom blank will slot into the motor stringers.

Generator/blige blower would be in order! Maybe set it up to only run when the genset it is running? I would make it a "suck" system. My 2'c's. :wink:
