If the shaft log needs more than screws there is something very wrong.

Looking like you are making some progress John.

Don't you just hate cutting into the good wood after all that hard work?

Nice work, including the neat workmanship on the frames too. The sheen gives it away. 8)

You did well. I got mine from the repo man but still had to pay more than that.

My new (really new) stainless shaft came today. Only problem is their was two of them and they were both too long. It looks like my order got the wrong shipping label. The company is fixing it today. They intercepeted mine and are redirecting it and giving me 15% off. I guess I'll work on the trailer for awhile.

LOL, Maybe the guys know that you are just passing through on this boat on the way to another one and wanted to make sure you had all the parts ahead of time for the next one. :lol: Remember buy double of what you need now and the next one that you build will cost you nothing for materials and the wimmin like to hear that too. :lol:
