New Boat!!!! 1986 Sea Nymph Fishing Machine FM-161

Well, The prop is set to arrive on Tuesday. I went ahead and pulled the spun prop of and determined it is SS not Aluminum as I had previously thought. Could tell immediately by the weight of it. So I plan to buy a replacement hub and use the tools available to me here at the shop I work at and press...

New Boat!!!! 1986 Sea Nymph Fishing Machine FM-161

Still trying to figure out how to kill the motor with the key switch. I have an unused Magneto Wire that used to go to the old switch and then through the kill switch on the way back to the motor.

New Boat!!!! 1986 Sea Nymph Fishing Machine FM-161

I had this grand idea that I would be putting the boat in the water this morning for the initial test run but yesterday afternoon that idea was aborted.
