Bottom Front Planking

Yesterday I epoxied and screwed the port bottom front planking on. This afternoon I removed the clamps and rough trimmed the excess. Its really looking like a boat now. I have some places to fill but overall I am happy with it. This stage in the build is among the most difficult so far.

This morning I went and looked at a 1968 Mercury 350S motor. The 350S is a 35 horse power short shaft motor. It was more of a project motor than expected and I did not purchase it. It was only an hour and a half away so I just had to look at it but if I spent the time to get it right I would never finish the boat, it would run but needed alot of TLC.
So I am still searching for a 30-40hp short shaft engine.
