I might need another boat to compliment the engine. I'm putting a MK25 head on that ABC tower for the 1927. I'm not sure it will take the KG.. When I got the Boat from old Bob he said it was running a 40 horse on it . I measured the MK25 with that tower,,it's 18" from the bottom of the clamp to the center of the prop shaft. I kind of don't want to cut the 47 down. Kind of seems idiotic after all the work inventing the steering system for the PO15. It needs to be run on that engine first..

I just went back 25 pages in this post and looked at the transom build, the trouble with doing beautiful work is when you want to take it back apart and do something different. I don't know if you would want to cut it down :hand:

Ray I didn't forget About you asking about the rear seat tabs..The boat has been cocooned now 4 yrs, Will unwrap it soon. Anyhow I dug up dome photo's of the backrest tabs. They seem to be cut from extruded angle. Maybe .060 .

Hey Mark,

I know the rear seat back was on the 47 when you got it from the earlier photos of it in your thread, I asume it looks to be original equipment? Do you have any other photos that might show details such as the stops and the hinges?

Ray noted, all new comers should read this, i believe along with Rays thread as well.....this is the real stuff that puts these boats back from being scrapped too being restored........sweat, elbow grease, and engine-uity .............cheers my friends.......all new comers and old, dont let these two threads pass you by........:arrr:
