There's an engine in that boat!
I never liked the size of the motor box in these old Correct Crafts. Re-routing the PCV fumes (above) will permit a box one inch lower in height than the original.
As previously reported, we have the engine in the boat, and we had it perfectly aligned with the propeller shaft. After making a 5/16" spacer (cut with a water jet to perfectly match the block and water-cooled manifold) we discovered the new aft motor mounts would obstruct exhaust routing. We have designed, and will build & install, new aft mounts. (Stay tuned.)
I really screwed up the thru-hull fitting while using a Dremel tool on the 'glas below the bronze fitting. Not to worry, it's been patched with epoxy and one of the two hose clamps will clamp aft the patched portion.
We've removed the aft mounts:
I'm rewiring the entire boat. And, replacing most of the gauges with some I think are more attractive then the originals. The ammeter (and it associated wiring) will be eliminated. A volt meter will take its place.
That bilge pump (red top at bottom edge of photo below) is advertised as being 1100 GPH. My grandson and I tested it. It pumped 3 gallons about 4' in height in 25 seconds. Did I tell you I really like that new dipstick (below)?
Maybe that transmission cooling hose should be a few inches shorter?
