glad to hear the engines don't have to come out. Even though thats probably the easiest part LOL. I probably spent a combined 60 minutes removing and resetting my engines in my M ( NOT counting hooking everything back up). You know we are all picture hungry from the head removal.

No, nothing was below 100 ft. Lbs. Of torque. Running great thank you Lord! We should pull it out of the water in late August and install the 4 blade props and pressure wash the bottom. That will be interesting.
