I thought it was going to be MHH = Muffy has hairball
Or maybe it is a TFGB = Toes first glass boat (or maybe tug for good boys)

Toesup designed and is building a true original.

And he did the hull in fiberglass---.

The drives are scratchbuilt masterpieces in machining---.

And he isn't finished with amazing us---.

I'm thinking that in the words of Al Jolsen,

"you ain't seen nothin' yet"---.

hmm, as much moving as you have had to do the last couple of years, might need to borrow the old hydro's "Atlas Van Lines" name.

Toesup Boat Werks update

Ive decided to go with the pair of Pittman 14201's... seeing as i have a few lying around..

The mounts have been made up, as well as the support blocks that have been shaped to fit in to the bottom of the hull.
To get the motors low down in the hull and to line up with the drives (U/J as straight as possible) the blocks / mounts are as low as i can get them... so I've had to mill out the center of the mounts as well as the blocks to get the cooling coil round the motor.

The pieces of stick under the back of the motors are support while the epoxy dries..
