after several vehicle repairs, and waiting out the sub zero weather we are back at it. making minor progress cleaning up various details.
filled outer corners of transom with airjay6011 (Ceramic Pourable Compound), i had 1 gal and their was still about an inch of space so i finished it with foam.
installed panels for gunwale storage (1/2" plascore)
remeasured and found a moeller 25gal tank that fits similar to the orig, the filler needs to be moved to starboard side (near where the horn was mounted) the only thing i'm changing is a custom PU tube that is more to the rear canter of the tank.
cu the holes for the through hull ex so i can get final measurements before i start cutting metal for the custom elbows required.

Won't your through hull exhaust be below the water line even while on plane with as low as they are?

Possibly, but thatís about as high as I can get them with the current set up I have, Center rise aluminum manifolds are almost impossible to find for a Ford. OMC center rise manifolds are pretty common but the risers are really tall.
And I think that 77 pounds is worth saving.

C'mon Brandon, the exhaust ports are super low so he can drive it home if the prop comes off  solely by the exhaust! Ha!
