In pictures 14 and 15 there are two hoses running in a V off the prop shaft, in front of the shaft seal and behind the coupler, what are they?

Mine looks similar, less the hoses. Will look further into these, mine don't seem to leak, yet.

Those are dripless shaft seals. They use positive pressure from the raw water pump to push water out instead of letting it leak in. This lubricated the shaft seals. They are a replacement for normal packing.

Man that paneling looks so good. I like the dull natural look of it. Wish i knew how to get mine like that

This boat is a beauty. I have had the opportunity to see this boat close up. It is a work of art, restored by a perfectionist.
