Engine out...

Took the outboard out two nights ago. The irony was that after almost losing the engine a few weeks ago in some rough weather I decided to glass in a two by four piece of wood with a lip cut into it so the outboard clamps would come against it if the motor came loose again. Welll, It was a tight fit for sure and I had a hel of a time removing said engine from said well with said modified mounting bracket. Enough said.



As that was my first fiberglass job ever, I was impressed how easy it is to do! That being said, it was also the messiest stuff I have ever worked with. It also was not the prettiest finished product, but what the hell, it was functional.
