Thanks guy's. I had to raise the motor to the highest setting since I moved it back and today I will be adjusting the linkage and timing. I can just see the top of the cavitation plate at WOT. It is running right at 26 mph at 5K. Not sure who did the prop work but the cupping job mangled the 13 pitch prop. I have an 11 pitch that I am going to give a try. I think once I get the timing and idle set and the underskin on I should get somewhere around 28 mph which i am okay with. The last trip out I spent most of my time around 1700-1800 rpms just cruising along. The engine is surprisingly quiet back there and the new set of boysen reeds cured the "coughing" issue I had at idle. I should have it all sorted out today and ready for a day on the water with the family tomorrow. 82* and sunshine.

Your paint job on the motor looks awesome! I'll be doing the same!

Nice clean "uncluttered" rebuild. Looks great. I like it. Good job.

Friday will make one week that I am the new proud owner of this awesome pontoon.  I am reaping the benefits of your hard work on my first boat ever to own myself.  I was so happy to come across it on Facebook Marketplace.  The seller told me about this blog and it is so interesting to see what all went in to the rebuild of the boat I now own.  Thank you for your hard work.  It now has a loving home at False River. Smile
