    Waiting for warmer weather so I can put non skid down. Also, Looking for opinions on boot stripe color and size and bottom paint color. I actually like the teal and will probably just freshen it up and leave the boot stripe off. Long term plan is to strip the bottom paint.

    Hull painted with awlgrip matterhorn white.

    Looks good! Have you thought about sanding the bottom paint off the bow down to the water line?

        Sailor, at some point, yes. For now to keep cost and labor down, will just freshen up the teal and either leave it or add a black or red 2" boot stripe.

          FisherCat I am praying I am wrong but the picture of your Short Block shows the indentation on the piston pointing toward the rear I am believe they face forward. I hope something has changed but I worked many years ago in an automotive machine shop. I am way out of touch with the rebuild world but It would not hurt to ask someone elses opinion. If something has changed I would like to know for my own information. Again I hope I am incorrect. I have a lot of interest in your project I too have a 236 that I love.

                The hull is 1983 and was very solid.

                The tanks are still 40 gallon each.

                The piston notch faces to the rear in all RH rotation MIE engines because the crankshaft is spinning in the opposite direction.
