    #6 Hoses shipped today. Mounted trim pumps and drilled for battery switches. Fuel filter kit was missing a snap bracket. Have one coming. Hope it is the correct one. Mercury and part number changes can make you crazy. Any way making steady progress.

    The stainless rubrail looks good with the pointed ends instead of wrap around.

    Who's crawling in the boat, and who's gonna be outside to put every bolt in???

    My friend Jay and his son Holt have been helping with rail install. Its on with tap screws now. Tuesday evening it gets thru bolted. Holt will be inside. He is eager to help. Thankfully.

    Pressing to finish this coming week. I've added fuel and primed, batteries are in, everything is mounted except trim tab. A little wiring to be completed, bleed systems.

    After spending an entire year restoring her, I will now tow her to Florida and soak her in salt water for 3 days.
