Another update. Put the decking on and the dash. I also filled the screw holes and put a coat of resin on the deck. :D Gotta work fast with the resin, today reached 91 deg :!:

I have two older evinrudes that were just completly rebuilt from the prop up. One is a 6hp, and the other is a 8hp. Im going to try them both out to see which one works better and gives the best performance.

Have you seen the You tube video with the little girl in the Pee Wee or the other one on muskoka sea flea site?

I have seen them both. :D The one with the little girl rides a lot smoother than the other video. The muskakoa video rides kinda bow high and bounces alot. Both are great videos showing how the peewee looks and rides. And how differntly you can finish the peewee.

Splashed the PeeWee this past weekend. :D My son demanded :lol: that we give it a trial run before we put the window, lights, and hardware on. Ordered some seats today. Its going to have a 8hp 2stroke with foward mounted controls and steering. It got alot of compliments and photo's taken from on lookers. I will send an update after everything is installed.

Looks fantastic, well done. I cant believe how quickly you've completed it.

Ive slowed right down on mine as we are coming into winter so nothing is drying very well.
