Andycap, the lift points came from a 1967 Century Resorter . They are the same as the ones on my 61 Resorter

Good eye lakeracer69. The shear was actually glued 13/16 higher than the photo. Another layer of the breasthook was not in place yet.

Well I started back at it a few weeks ago. I built a eng. mockup, drilled prop shaft hole and dialed in the engine location. Made some new engine mount blocks at 14 degrees. Old ones were getting bad. Also finished up the boat dolly for the flip. I will be mounting prop strut on the boat and drilling shaft hole soon. Then its painting the hull and flipping for engine install.

Prop shaft hole is drilled. The bit drifted off a little to starboard side but I'm still good to go.
