The first order of business was to adjust the hydraulic reverse band on the starboard transmission. My inexperience that first night caused it to loosed and I lost reverse. After doing some research, and obtaining help from a local mechanic, we got it adjusted and were back in business.

Since then I've done all of the following nearly all myself:

- replaced the bilge pump with a Whale supersub 11gph
- replaced the starboard alternator
- rebuilt the starboard carburetor
- replaced the starboard starter
- replaced the points system with Pertronix electronic ignitions in both distributors
- installed new 40K volt ignition coils
- replaced the port exhaust with a new Centek fiberglass exhaust
- fluid changes
- new spark plugs
- rebuilt the mast light wood
- rebuilt the trim tab hydraulic pump and panel
- replaced the port tach cable with a new plastic sheathed one
- sanded and refinished my wood railings
- started installing 100 year old cypress flooring in the cabin
