looks great and a question
how do you keep your shop so clean?
my hat is off to you


 
I spent this morning straightening up my shop, somehow or another I have acquired a large pile of parts. I'm not sure what to do about this, maybe I'll have to build on.

I would put three turns of steering cable on the steering wheel. I see you only have one.

Ray completed more repairs, I forgot to take pictures. Here you can see the new transom wood. I installed new pulleys and ran a string through them to see if everything lines up.
