I shall do some more engine shots when the boat comes back from the upholsterer ,seems like a bit of a cop out as everything else I did myself ,but I don't want to do it.
Allan I might have to do the decibel test as I don't think it is as loud as most of the other Ford and Chev V8's on the lake .

went to the upholsterer over a month ago, well he couldn't fit the boat in his shop ,so we took all the bits to be done out and I'm waiting.
So in the meantime my stainless rub rail arrived ,six month wait?,and I decided to make a new inlet manifold with longer runners(from 2'' to 5.5'') to increase torque and move the peak power down 1000rpm

Not only do you sculpt boats but also engines. Looks great, I know it will perform as good as it looks :)

While I have been Hibernating I have sanded off the botecote clear which turned out to be a matt finish and terrible to apply and was never happy with the finish.Had a mate spray the boat with auto clear ( spies hecker hi solid clear) very happy with result .
Also have upholstery back from trimmer (long wait) and finally rub rail arrived so here are some photos .
still have a few finishing jobs to do on the interior but have been waiting to get upholstery done before I tackled them

WOW Pete!

Big improvement on the finish, I thought that you must have been going for a Matt finish with the prior coating, but that looks a million bucks!!

One day all these Aussie boats will make it together for a meeting.
