    Nice! I would change out the bronze fuel filter for a newer/water fuel separator. Looks like the non-skid has been redone all over and really sets it off. Congrats!

    Did you take a look under the transom coverings?

      Yes the previous owner restored the whole boat other than the transom. I posted in the discussion page about the issue. It has 0 flex with the motor trimmed up and me shaking away at it. I figure with the lighter 2 stroke I should be able to get some years of use out of the transom.

      YES a new fuel water separator is on the way along with a new impeller, thermostat and oil for the motor. The engine it has less than 100 hours on it.
