Been building small and big block chevys all my life so figured a boat motor would be a breeze, and it was. Traded for a bass tracker with a 40 hp evinrude with a cylinder down. Tore it down bought up what parts i needed and had the block bored 30 over. Put it all back together and ran it all weekend on the local lakes without a hiccup. Very simple and alot cheaper than a new one.

You sound like a GOOD Man to know. Make it sound easy. It would be impossible for me to do that in less than a few months.
Need to try it out in the new Carroll County 1000 ac. lake.

A day to tear down and a day to put back together. And how ever long machine work or waiting on parts to come in takes. Didnt take long at all. I have been on the new lake with a friend of mine. Really like the place. Plan on having mine up there in the next few weekends. Can you fish it at night? Was trying to find regs on it but havent seen if you could or couldnt.
