Gotta start somewhere, strip it inside, then outside for grinding and tear out?

Seats, side panel wood, vinyl for patterns & seat foam .. Nice !
Unless your not using the Back to back seats.

We are planning to use the original design on the interior. The fact that the boat was all intact is the main reason We drove all the way to South Dakota to get it when we already had one that was the same.

This is where the motors gonna sit
I still need to find some MerCruiser motor mounts so I can dial in the motor mount locations.

And I just found these on eBay, new old stock

MerCruiser 188 with the original logs is a tight fit, then with Glenwood Manifolds.


The MerCruiser manual states a minimum of 13 inches from the waterline to the top of the riser, so will have to see what it looks like when I get my risers on Monday.

The snails look like they are going to work very well, they fit under the original V-8 Engine cover, and the tops of them are about 15 inches above the waterline, plenty of clearance for manual steering although Im not sure the power steering ram and valve would fit.
Glenwood manifolds and aluminum snails weigh 22 pounds each, The MerCruiser log manifolds with risers weighs 60 pounds each, for a net weight loss of 76 pounds.

Could you use external steering ram's ?
I've seen them on the Teleflex/Seastar web site. Guessing very expensive though.
Doug found a place that rebuild & sell hyd. steering systems.

i have been looking at options, I think i could adapt the outboard cyl i have now to fit inside, or get the one made for a stern drive (one on ebay for a fair price). as far as the external go, looks like its mostly custom and for high power/speed use. i may fab something but i think it would be overkill for this application. the teleflex external are large displacement and require a vary large vol helm.
