Smile Steves boat

As BW seems to be shrouded in mystery for some, I though I'd start a thread on my own boat.

So far this year :

Changed both propshafts out and put in new ones with the XR shaft pattern cut onto the prop end. 4th time the shafts have been out. Glad its over.

Swapped to bravo one props for family use. A lot more stearn lift a lot more lower end grip and and the abilty to go slower and stay on the plane.

Craned the engine out and in again to Change the flexidrive coupling on the flywheel that burnt out after the aligment changed when the lower inner nut stripped out.

Changed the port Gearbox after the cone clutch burnt out. Premature wear caused by a lack of gearbox oil (and Lower unit!) when winterising.

Changed the Starboard trim sender. What was a simple job exploded into a bits all over the place number. The through-grommet refused to come out of the transom shield. I had to take the leg and gimbal ring off in the end.

Put the headlining back up in the cabin.

Put the cabin door lock back together.

Changed 24 tonneau poppers down the sides of the boat and bolted them right through this time.
I'll never be a millionaire... and a boat owner.
