We have also decided to add bracing from the transom to the sides of the boat under the decking, we wondered about that and thought we might have fixed it, figured I had to get the pressure treated wood out of there, might as well get it right.

Not a lot of progress this weekend, We did get the steering issue resolved and the throttle hooked up, Still trying to figure out a way to mount the gauges.

Might get a chance to work on it tonight, i'll try to get some more photo's.

Picture of Steering and Throttle setup. It is designed so that bath the driver and passenger and drive. This setup really is sweet, smooth and the throttle is in the perfect spot. The original idea was to use half of the original bars but after looking in the garage for them for over 30 minutes my son decided to tell me that he might have thrown them away. OOPS! So my buddy had an old roadmaster kids bike we stole the handlebars off of and cut down to size, no bending required. Looking to get a shift boot to fit over this entire assembly to make it look nice, oh yea and a better grip. Also looking for one of the Chrome naked trucker girl shift knobs. :shock:

Have a wiring diagram so tonight I will work on gauges and wiring Miss Propless back together.

The above makes very little since because it was typed in a hurry at the office. We had a very busy day.

I should read what I post before posting it. :?:
