Yeah I'm running a Flexi-coupling mate.

Rubber engine mounts just allow movement. I sought out a mount that actually absorbs vibration like some of the plastic damper plates.

Same people that made the Flexi-Coupling on my shaft/gearbox connection.

I just mounted the engine as it was originally but will look at modifying the beds to accept mounts

Looks real good! Isn't that a trany mount? Engine mounts same type/configuration? Ours has no trany mounts - 4 engine mounts each engine.

Yes, the shipwright decided to move the rear mounts from the engine back to the tranny, we replaced all 4 mounts. The result is a quieter and smoother ride.

Oh boy! I remember those days! I sanded for 4-1/2 months straight on my hull. Fill, fair, fill, fair! I didn't think it would ever end. Eventually I got to the point where I'd had enough and it looked Ok.



Sure looks pretty when you get it into the primer stage!

Carry on Matt! Looking good!

Hi folks.
Having found a new job a couple of weeks ago I'm now finding myself knackered at the end of the day and haven't been to my baby as much as I'd like. I did manage to get down yesterday and today and made a little advancement. No work this weekend for her either because I had a cortisone injection in my L5 Right Nerve Root so need to take it easy so it will work.

Ok well that's all. Hope you're well.

Cheers, Hendo :-)

Hey Matt
Good luck with the L5 situation. I know how bad that sciatic nerve referred pain gets. I had L5 injection in March, but on left side. Slow but steady improvement and after about 5 weeks I was pretty much back to normal. I reckon riding the bicycle a bit was a big help too, as it kinda works all the muscles and ligaments in the area.

Hey mate. Yeah yesterday I had my Right L5. Next week I get my Left L5 done. The MRI shows a narrowing of the spine around the L5 and is pinching the nerves. Feel really good today but Flic is making sure I'm behaving and not doing anything for a couple of days. Lots of physio and strengthening of the core should help apparently but they can't fix my issue, just treat

Hope you continue to improve mate
