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!

I'm still accumulating all the shiny parts to put the motor back together but hoping to set it in this weekend

Looks great and a hell of a project! Are outboard and jet bottoms the same?

On the late 21's they were, this one will eventually be worked and blueprinted but I have 0 funds for that now after all this

Looks great, keep it forever it'll all be worth it. 

Thanks, I think I've got everything to at least get the motor set in this weekends now... still have a list of stuff to get to make it run but it'll at least be floatable soon

cleanup almost done on the motor, supposed to be getting the valve covers today(we'll see how that goes) Need the new bolts for the crank pulley as well, then the plates will be added so I can start mocking it up in the hull.

Wow, quite the transformation.  Lots of work but looks great.  I never thought about switching engine types on a boat, but you made it look factory!  Well factory plus a lot of upgrades!

The valve covers were finally finished up yesterday, custom stuff is a PITA to get these days. Got those and the exhaust installed last night. Will be making a new set of plug wires tonight and replacing the cap and rotor with a new set.

I've already missed the season, I need another $2k in parts plus what I spent today before shell be ready. On the brighter side, I priced out a brand new one and it was $140k so I'm still ahead(at least that's what I keep telling myself)
