already pulled the motor, had a 150 mariner on top of mercury offshore mid. got myself a 2.4 200 to throw on, already set it up drystacked and possibly mod powerhead later. But wanted to put larger transom plate to distribute loaded edges a bit better, also reseal everything a bit better. Had rotten seat pedestals so those got cut out to be replaced. re-configuring the dash with a couple added gauges, took away speedo to use gps but adding water temp and fuel pressure. New dished steering wheel to give more room between the trim switches and my knuckles. Had to pull the tank to clean properly and repaint.
My next steps are trimming the floor that was previously replaces to have a bit better drainage access, also may lose as bit of weight in doing so which could be good.
Will post more as I go for those who have interest.
