The next step was to make a new engine bed to accommodate the reverse
gear and the re-built engine . This part was a bit of a brain
teaser . The reverse gear sits about four inches higher than the
engine . I temporarily installed an old device to check out the
geometry and the shaft angle .
After finishing the engine beds , a new center deck frame is made ,
and the front deck is also changed . The second shot is skipping a
head a bit to the first couple of coats of varnish on the inside of
the hull and the new decks .
