With the correct thermostat, around 160 deg. F for the open cooling system; something to use as a benchmark.

I’m pretty sure it’s a 180. Either way, I’m beyond thrilled.

Heck yea....me too. Nothing like the engine firing after a period of work and fingers crossed.

Glad you got it going with ease.

It’s a month shy of three years on this project. Sunday is the sea trial.

How'd you fix the rotation of the image?

Thanks to all on this forum for the help and encouragement along the way. There were more than a few times that I really questioned what I was doing and why I was doing it but it sure felt good to get it on the water today. It was a little choppier than I wanted for a shakedown but I did find some smoother water later on.

A few notes. I was running around 29 mph on my phone at around 3K rpm. Oil pressure was 50-60 at temp, at cruise rpm. Pressure at idle was around 25-30. Temp seemed to stay at 190-195 no matter how I was running it. I checked timing again and I can advance it some. Its actually just about at TDC, so I need to bump that. The bolt is hard to get to with the tools I had on board.

Pier handling is a bit different. There is almost no control in reverse. I'm used to a stern drive so that was an adjustment. The drivers position really has great views seated, and was very comfortable. I cant wait to really get settled in to the boat and use it.

Still on the list is to get a new fuel tank vent hose, secure the tank and also get a new filler neck as the new one I got has a 3" flange; I need a 3.5 (I think). In my searching, a 3.5" flange with a 1.5" hose is an odd ball combo. Most flanges that big are a 2" hose.

I'll post up some interior pics once I get it in this week!

My wife, daughter and I went out for dinner Sunday night and then my sister, who is in from San Diego went out all day yesterday and finally got to put the boat to work doing what it does best - towing! The boats first pull was my daughter and sister on the tube. It was my daughters first time ever doing something like that and she LOVED it. Then we got to ski. Neither one of us had skied in a couple years but we got up first pull! Sorry for the lack of pics though. I loved the wake, or lack there of! The old boat was a brick and was unintentionally the first ever wake boat built in the 70's haha.

I'm really getting to learn and love this boat and can't wait for the next time out!

I'm going to say that this will conclude my build thread. I have some projects in the future - dash, audio, some carpet or something up the bulkheads behind the side bolsters - but for all practical purposes, SHES DONE! Thanks to all on here for the help through the years (yikes)!!
