Good looking boat.

I see you used tile spacers on the deck. Great Idea! Wish I had thought about that, as I have some varying widths - not noticeable from a distance, but there!

What was the 30 seconds from the $300.00+ ticket?
Some mornings it just doesn't seem worth it to gnaw through the leather straps.

Hello,
Thanks for the nice comments!
She goes roughly 30mph with just me and about 26mph average with me and my girlfriend.
The 30 seconds away part was because I launched the boat before it was registered. First time in the water, so excited, then bam! some coper ruined it for me. It was a rainy garbage day too. I was the only guy out there. $305 tho. I guess I learned my lesson?

Keep the engine topless and make some pipes for it son!

I have really no idea how to make them or put them on. Quincy welding used to make them variously around town. But that was way back when. Personally I am getting an older Yamaha 25hp and converting it to a remote steering outboard, since it already has electric start. I am putting high performance heads on it to gain 5-7hp and adding a nose cone to the lower plus going to try to make some pipes for it. I'll let you know how it goes probably in the winter time.

And another engine I am restoring is a Merc 20hp tiller style though from my family. Restoring it back to original though so I won't be putting any sort of pipes on it.

Your Mercury looks fine the way it is. Looks great actually.
