It's been almost 5 years since this started... I just want to see it through! There's been lots and lots of money spent so far, MSR Performance did the rails, Tim Place did the pump and Redline did the engine(555 CI BBC) Carrera did some of the glass work and repair but it may be going somewhere else to redo the rub rail because I can't stand shoddy finish work. After doing the conversion, we found structural damage in the left front sponson, had I found it up front I would have never purchased the boat to begin with. But here we are!
Rebuilding this thread boats almost water ready....... I'll try to recap some of the major items. Back story... we had a 77' Charger MiniDay cruiser that went 55-60mph but we'd lost 3 engines in it and my wife wanted to go FASTER.

Old boat (read: my dads boat) has a simpler crown nut system thats super easy to work with. This one, not so much. I get the idea but am wondering if theres a universal tool for it or something? Thanks all
