Engine Mounted!

Today I had a r/c sailboat regatta near my house. Afterwards several of the sailboat skippers came over and we got the engine test mounted in place. Now I can get things hooked up in order to figure out the dimensions to finish the motor well and fit all the fuel lines and steering cables. The motor will then come off again.
Friday I installed the dash switches for the running lights and bilge pump. Install was as simple as drilling two holes and tightening the nuts.

I also did a little wood work. I made some corners to hold the fuel tank from sliding on the floor of the boat. I also made small triangle blocks to make the carlings a little stronger.
