Well, it's finally done. The wood is refinished, the '91 Merc 40 is mounted with new cables, etc. The trailer is rewired and after nearly 20 years, she took to the water like a duck. I can't believe the performance with the 40. Very stable, except at the extreme top of the range. The prop is very tall (19") and will be traded for something in the 16 - 17" range. Even so, it planed pretty well and flew across the water like a cruise missile. My seven-year-old son was grinning from ear to ear, just like his dad. I can't wait to try it with the right prop!
