I did a job for a high performance marine centre the other day. The boat I was working on was 28’, and the guy told me the owner just dumped 60k into the motor. He’s also working on a 39’, and the guy said it will do 175 MPH on the water.... I’m happy with my boat... it’s a 2014 Bowrider Bayliner. I can take myself, and 7 other adults onto the water. It does 50MPH, and will pull 2 people up on skis.... why do I need more?

Well guys, and Meg, I’m worn out. I just got done pulling that bad engine out. It’s 10pm. In typical Damon fashion, it was an adventure. Nothing went to plan and it took brute force to get it out. I didn't take many pictures of the process because I just wanted to get it done. The followig pics may tell a bit of the story. Once again, I wish Mike Draper was my neighbor

Made a little more progress today. Just need to do about 6 more things then I can make the big lift into the boat. Still need to move over the balancer, timing chain cover, water pump, oil pump, and oil pan. If i can get one solid day to myself I can make the push.
