Aligning Engine to prop shaft. Started with a new removable base board indexed to the hull frames. The prop shaft and the engine shaft are on the same horizontal plane. Used Dumas drive coupling.

With the new base board and engine aligned, time to reinstall boiler, fuel tank and new oil trap/condensor.

Rough layout



Final removable steam plant.

Finalizing the main deck design. The original plans had 90 degree corners on the main deck mid section. I decided to eliminate internal and external hard corners as much as possible.
