    I used Golf tee's to line up all the blind rivet holes in the cap and hull this should keep it in alignment as I work my way around with the new rivets. I am also adding backer washers to each rivet. This should take care of the rivet pulling threw problem that I have seen.

    I also installed the prop shaft and seal this evening.

    Thanks Chuck
    You answered my question and the two photos helped jogged my memory about the two straps covering the nuts on the lifting rings. and bracket location that bolts to the under water gear.
    Well Done.

    Does any know the correct hook up of the two air inlet hoses that hook up under the windshield pass threw the divider to the rear of the drivers foot rest. Do they both terminate at the rear of the foot rest or does one of them pass threw and terminate at the front of the bilge.
    One hose drops down through the floor and dangles loose to vent the confined space area in front of the underfloor bulkhead. The other ties into one of the two holes/vent, to vent the middle section of the bilge in conjunction with the blower.

    The transom will have two exit ports on the inside; 1) one with a short dangling hose to vent the confined space where the fuel cell resides and 2), the other vent hole accepts the hose coming from the bilge area.

    I route both hoses through the opening where the cables go through the floor up around the driver's foot well. Then tie them in to the vent port(s) accordingly.

    Free flow from front to rear to vent the confined spaces.

    Option; for me, I dangle both hoses from the front vent behind the under floor bulkhead and leave the other port open as a hand hole for when I need to replace/reroute new cables (steering, throttle, shifter). Since the photo of the rear (below), I have added a second blower in the rear to up the forced flow of that rear confined space. I also moved the battery from that same confined space (with possible fuel fumes) to the cooler hole under the passenger's seat, then put in a dual battery setup, up front with room to spare for storage.

    I have also been working on up grading the Perfect Pass Digital pro speed control system the boat came with. After talking with Mark at Perfect Pass I decided to go with the Star Gazer three Event ,Z Box and new Multi-Line Display up Grade. My original servo was in good shape so I was able to reuse it.
    I decided to find a different location for the servo because the cable tends to get hung on the engine cover when mounted in the front. The photos show the servo mounted on the rear of the engine I fabricated two brackets with nylon bushings to hold the new 39" cable.
