You won't have any problems with the OB shaft length, I don't think... You can check it out pretty well on the trailer... Lower the OB and see where the powerhead sits relative to the bootstripe...
Glad your mast
was easy to raise... None of them are insane, just some harder than others...
Yeah I over thought it with my shoulder being somewhat out then but me and pops hoisted it up after trying some blocks and tackle by hand and it did well.
Rewiring the outboard
now after pulling the cover off I am one wire shy of fixing that has dry rotted but I hope tomorrow at the local motor
scrap yard they may have something at least that has somewhat of a pig tail to solder to. If not there are other ways I can rig this.

Ye asked for it.. Its a nice bare inside to learn and do what we want. For being a 72' there is barely any wood rot
on the floor for it having no bilge
pit. Here is some shots taken this winter as we did a couple of things while we could. Do have cushions
for all the settees Just left them inside to let whole cabin
to air out and it was winter then.
