Neel, that's the plan! Taking her to the Evinrude dealer tomorrow.

I can't offer any new insight in WR-LPU. I have done the best I can considering the conditions. If I ever buff and polish it will be during the off season. For now, it is what it is.

Plenty of time to polish it at the end of the season. Looks nice in white.

Thanks, everybody. The boat is at the dealer. I saw the motor in its crate and it looks awesome! Ken, the rigger, has a template and he held that in place while I drilled out the mounting holes. Then I sealed them with some superfast epoxy. Ken seems to be a big fan of RTV sealant but I wanted the holes sealed with a coat of epoxy anyways. I spent at least an hour there and we went over everything we could think of as far as the installation of the motor, controls, and gauges. Can't wait to see that bad boy on the back. The motor is white and red and so is the boat. It won't be long until my hat's backwards at WOT.

They have quite the operation at Tom's Marine in Crawfordsville. They have all manner of BRP products which, I guess, is how a dealership that size survives in an area that doesn't have that much water. Anyways, almost everyone at the place came by to take a look at the boat. Several questioned how many hours I have in it. My standard response is that I have no idea but it's a lot. I don't keep track because this is all just for fun.
