Runabout Re-Power

2010.04.12

My Re-Power last fall has not gone without incident. First, the shaft was too short. Rather, the Transom was too tall for a short shaft and too short for a long shaft. It turns out, the Original Brochure for the boat mentions a 16" Transom... go figure. And here, I was worried that I had re-done the transom wrong somehow.

In dealing with that, I have over-heated the motor, necessitating yet another trip to Bill Dykes for a new water pump and head gasket.

Next, his recommendation was that I absolutely had to lower the motor. My first attempt to do that involved a Jack Plate, installed backwards so I could lower instead of raise the motor. Well, that combined with my new 4 blade thin pitched prop, she wouldn't even get on a plane. After all that, I ended up Trimming the transom to 15" and drilling filling some new and old holes left from the various configurations.

Hopefully this latest configuration will work, so I can get to finishing up the rub rail and get back to using the boat with its more reliable power plant.

I also picked up a mahogany rub rail from Collins Wood Products in Hurlock. What a beautiful wood, Mahogany is. With a coat of polyester resin and three coats of varnish, it looks even more spectacular...
