Sorry. I should clarify - the u bolt has six inches of thread, so it is welded through the cutwater but the threads pass through it and through the stem, secured inside the boat. The screws shown on the cutwater are just securing the cutwater, not intended to secure the ubolt.
Got the cutwater back with the u bolt welded into it. A couple of hours sanding and polishing later it was ready to install. After that I was finally able to install the gas tank. Not much left to do before I can't go any further without an engine.

The other thing I did was epoxy in a couple of pieces of plywood backer on the inside of the bow, so that w...

The fish camp motors mentioned earlier in this thread by Biss were a great deal, however Mercury's exemption from the China tariffs expired on Jan 1 - and because these particular motors are big imported fro...
decided to finish the bottom of the windshield with stainless - looks good from a few feet away, so passes my test. Have been out in Las Vegas the last few days, joining my mrs on a work trip, so no progress beyond this.

Agree on the fuller bits. For lubrication I dipped the tip of the SB screws in epoxy.... Seemed to work for me. Just make sure you don't need to take em out.
