So... Finally getting to spend some time on my boat project. My next phase will be to run in the engine to make sure it has no leaks and is setup to just drop in the boat.

I needed a mobile engine test stand for this so I built me one.

I have some video of this build and will also be videoing the engine setup and testing.

That's a bit more complex than what I used to test run mine.

You make it look easy, I’m envious. It’s obvious that a man of your talents needs to design & fabricate his own boat. Maybe something along the lines of a scaled down (your design) “stealthy” express. Something that will make the government shipyard folks in Norfolk jealous.

I put up a video of the assembly of the test stand. I hope to get the engine mounted in a few days after I get my engine hoist back from my buddy.

I am going to try to post a picture 2mb in size. I am tweaking the forum so we can upload photos of boats, fixes, brochures etc.

All you do to attach pictures is drag and drop them into the message box.
