Boatman that is pretty cool you set your motor up like that if you don't mind me asking how does it get water to cool it, and are you using a different prop?
Red neck engineering- If ya can't fix it with duck tape, bailing wire, zip ties, and JB weld well than it can't be fixed.

If it moves and it aint suppose to duck tape it. If doesn't move and its suppose to put WD-40 on it.

Here's mine. 1648 Duracraft. One of the last ones made before the Wards sold the company and started War Eagle. When I got it it was being used for a mountain of storage and had a 6ft tree growing in the back of it. Also started life as a side console.

Its a nosecone kit /w low water pickup. Water goes up through the nose cone(that is glued to a stock gearcase) then through the stainless steel lines to the water pump cavity. Then you block off the stock water intakes with epoxy and you are ready to run on the surface. You do need a good prop that will run good on the surface,plus a hydrolic transom so yo can lower motor for a better hole shot. The idea is barrowed from outboard racing technology. Since I an a X racer I know how to do it. I can post more pic's if you are interested. They don't make cones for small motors so you have to take one for a v-4 and modify it.Here is a link to where you buy the kit. http://bobsmachineshop.com/Products/cones.cfm

Ok here is a gearcase that came into my shop for refinishing. I drew a line to show the cone piece you epoxy on to your stock gearcase. You can see the hose fittings, and the intakes on the bottom of the cone.

Awesome thread

Here's my first boat. It was a 14' Monark that I completely restored from bare aluminum.
Had an 18 hp GDLT on it. I called it The Lucky Mallard

And here's my current rig. A 1754 Excel F4 SW with a Mud Buddy Black Death 4200.
I call this one Hammer Time

Only a few mini-projects left to do as the season opens this weekend. Over the past few years I've made the boat a year around vessel. In the summer I crab, troll for salmon and lake fish for Bass & Trout. Of course during the season I target ducks & geese, but will occasionally do a double/triple for Ducks, winter Kings and crab.

I've done quite a bit over the past two years to this boat most I would classify (because it suits me) as "usability improvements" and a few others because I'm nuts. If Lowe wants to hire me I have plenty of other ideas for geeky guys who enjoys finding cool ways to tweak things and make them better. My goal for most of this stuff was to maximize space while adding storage and features to make it a year around boat.

Here are some of the modifications I've done over the past few years:
- Fabricated gun locker
- Move live well from center console to fabricated live well for larger/more fish + bait box (doubles as a nice ice chest) w/ aerator.
- Downrigger mount plates
- Customized Scotty downrigger extensions
- Fabricated KC lights heavy bracket
- Added 2 additional stacked KC lights
- Waterproof glove box
- Bow mounted GoLight
- Added 2 foliage strips to Beavertail Duck Blind
- Cut Mojo slots in duck blind
- Added grommets for additional zip tie locations
- HDS-5 bow mounted unit
- HDS-7 center console mounted unit w/ side scan (networked with bow to share waypoints, data, etc)
- Sonic Hub (tunes for those long days on the sound trolling for salmon)
- Fabricated center console extension providing covered console plus additional storage on top

I still need to grass her up this year but she's ready to go along with the pooch.

This boat sure doesn't make me a better shot but she's a blast. The name is going on her before we get into full swing.
