That looks nice Don. My bow eye could use a little bit of love.

I got a proper bow eye welded on. Glad to get rid of that bronze eye bolt with a hogged out hole.

I was an old motor guy...until I wasn't.

Love my 25 hp Yamaha 4 stroke. Quieter, cleaner, and easier on the gas. Power trim....hmmm.

Thanks, but I am seriously considering springing for a new 4 stroke.
At this point in my life I want relative quiet, less pollution and dependability.

Flipped it over. I am amazed at the condition of the bottom. Needs some cleaning, but not bad for 60 years old.

This is the only dent I found...
