Here's a pic of the motors mounted. I glued in 4 pieces of pine with slots
that i cut on the table sow so that i could remove the motors .
By doing that i was able to move the motors back and forth to set them up
and line them up with the shafts.

Nice work on the bilge. I must say it is one of the cleaner donzi bilges I have seen! Most guys just throw stuff together thinking it's never going to be seen but I guess you and I are alike in the fact that everything needs to be in order!

Coming aIong really nice, Paul. James is really fortunate you are doing the build for him.

I am working feverishly on a current build so that I will be ready to start on this hull that John and I will be getting very soon. This shot is mine coming out of the mold in Nova Scotia.

I bought the Jolly Jay it's 24" L and 81/2 beam.
I am going to use the keel and the ribs and i will re draw them
to make a trawler 42L with a 14" beam.
It will be my next project , Just have to work out the best way to
go about getting to those dimentions it should look like the
thompson trawler but bigger.

Hi Paul, finishing up a refurb of a little Chris Craft, this model was built in 1954 ! https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1782586

( see pic #1 )

After that, I am planning to start an unbuilt kit that was manufactured in the 50's ...

A Dumas Chris Craft 28 foot Semi Enclosed Cruiser.
