Re: Recovering From TC Oswald.

If you are quick and get 44C really drunk, maybe you could convince him to hang around and build you one!

Do the outboards lift up on there own, built in pivots?
Or do you have some sort of track or sled allowing the motors to lift higher?
Mor details/pics please!

Re: Recovering From TC Oswald.

The outboards use their standard power tilt system. The motors have been removed from the boat again, so the whole thing can be prepared for painting. I won't be able to take any more pics of installed engines until after the boat is sprayed, which will likely be a couple of months at least.

They're 20" shafts, with genuine Tohatsu extensions to bring them to 25".

Re: Recovering From TC Oswald.

You should drop by for some practise!

Longboarded the port sheer panel yesterday. It's about 95% fair now. Just a couple of spots to highbuild some more.

Re: Recovering From TC Oswald.
