    DogCavalry I aim to misbehave.

    Yes, I was on the jazz.

    It went extremely well. I had the A-Team, that's for sure.

    Need to move a boat? Build a dolly.

    It's a 20" transom.

    Ok, the rest of you boat makes it look much shorter than that. That's why I asked.

    Yes, it looks a bit out of proportion. There's nothing on the boat about appearance. Everything is about function.

    Oh I understand that. Just keep in mind some of your big outboards are 25" lower unit. But you can get them 20" also. It looks fine brother, don't take what I asked as an insult. I know that part of the boat also has to function as a dive platform.

    We are good. Questions about my boat are always welcome. I've sure incorporated a lot of information from the members during the build.

    Take it easy, you may be extending the time to heal, by working, and racking and twisting the body.

    Over doing it is never good. Although I do know the excitement of getting closer.

    I just hit 1000 posts, and 500 likes, 1 post apart. That must mean I'm only 50% likeable. A solid C+. I'll take it.

    If you are only a C+, then that must make me an E at the best, as I am way behind you, relatively.
    methinks it is time to move the goalposts - 50%+ is an A+ ! :)

    Edit - thanks to the three 'likes' above (or below rather) I am now on 498 likes, so only 2 behind John.
