Powerman on the steering I went with rack and pinion (teleflex) and made a connector from that to the original jet ski cable.

And went with a foot operated throttle which is real nice having both hands on the steering wheel...

Looking good , looks like some spare horsepower too ..got any detailed transom pics?

This is the back of the boat. I had to put a bell crank under the seats to reverse the steering with two cables. The box on the back is for the trim motor. The boat is getting there....

Ok Here are some pic of the boat in the water...I stared it on the traler and it ran good. But when i got it in the water it ran about 50' and would not pump gas to the carbs. So took it out and order a rebuild kit for the gas pump. The boat look good sitting in the water... Thats me in the boat and sitting next to my cousin Cj boat. A 24' Baja.

Sounds familiar I had all kinds of bugs to work out of mine before it ran right... How do you like squirming down into that little bugger..feels like getting into a go-cart to me...
