hmmm.

    Repair the tachometer
    install the new garbord drains
    get brakes for the trailer
    fix the leaky bolt holding the strut
    get my prop re-pitched
    make my new wooden flagpole with the lamp at the top
    re-align my steering cable stand-off so that my steering wheel is not at a permanent 60 degree angle

somewhere in there, I need to have my "official" launch...

I think I'll be ready.

Bruce what kind of steering did you use???I forgot.

If it's teleflex rotary,you can just unwind the cable out of the head,turn the wheel appropriate amount of turns,and re-thread the cable back in & repeat til it's centered.

Off topic already....

Thanks, Warren. That is a great idea that I had not thought of.

Because I have an "old school" steering column, my teleflex helm is behind a bulkhead, way in the bow. I have access, but it is very awkward. It is easier just to unbolt and slide the stand-off at the back. Access is simple.

Dwain... you must have missed it...

Go to You Tube and google "Chelseacoachworks"... you'll see a few videos of the great work that Hot Rod and his friends did for me.

We are "back in business", and starting to tune those two props you sent me. I believe they are a 12x15 and a 13x13. I am thinking I've now got enough power that I will want a little more bite.

(what are you running on yours?)
