Yeah I hear ya, it’s blocked and doesn’t move and I was using an angle finder to match my angles as if the boat WAS level but I think when I go to build the front engine mounts and level up the engine I will definitely put it on the flat ground leveled all the way around so I’m not going back and forth from the stringers to the rigging remembering the angle that the boat is on. Lol ordered front motor mounts but not gonna be here for this weekend so not exactly sure what I’ll do this weekend on it but I’ll find something

Motor is on. I have the engine level with the hull. figuring I can stack washers if I need to tilt it. Going to add a couple more braces but I think it’s pretty stout. Going to be finishing the engine stand and then start on the rest of the rigging next

Got most of the rigging set up and tacked together. Going good I think

I know I'm definitely getting in on the ladder end of this just wanted to add my two cents.... for a while now I've been running a 12-foot airgator direct drive 400 small block 2 blade Whirlwind stump pullers... 3 seat configuration 3/8 poly... she runs the ground pretty good by myself but I'm fat close to 260-275.... I think the 400 small block makes all the difference bunch of torque the push is really good with this thing jumped over the outfall canal in Hernando more than once with my girl with me
