It is time to fish of the pods, see if t6he fuel tangs and bilge pumps work, yes there is a pump in each pod.



Refinish pods with gel coat to match, set up to mount swim step.

Thanks for the nice comments, to answer the first question I made partial molds of the aft bottom of the hull ( beginning picture ) the rest was just flat sheets of fiberglass preformed on a steel table and then sectioned together. Yes I could make a mold of the pods , but it is time consuming. Now to the nonskid in this case, I cheated on the plug a area was taped of in the pattern desired and after sanding Gel coat is applied and with a small foam paint roller going in one direction a textured surface was created, then after curing and the tape removed and all cleaned up the plug has wax applied 5 coats and 2 of PVA after drying black tooling and the fiberglass lay up to create the mold. ( Pictures of swim step in black) , from that the 3 section platform was build, center section removable to work on the drive. :ohmy:

Has it effected slow speed turning due to the transom being 2 feet or so past the drive point?



I have seen boats here where the outboard sits in a well about 1/3 of the way forward. or even in the front 1/3. always wondered how they handled

I have not found any problems turning, backing up with a Bravo II has always crabbed and on windy days shocked me at times. :woohoo: But going to solve that for next summer, have a Bravo III X 220 ratio sitting in a box to be installed this winter, I am going from one project to the next. :lol:

No not at all, better than OEM , I fabricated the swim platform in three sections the outside once are permanently bonded to the pods but the center section has a lip on the right and left and held in place with 4 bolts.

With the permanent bonding of the swim deck to the pods do you have a plan if the pumps fail or hose needing to be replaced?

Or are you like me and know my work will outlast me

Almost Christmas and a happy one to you. No 2 would be nice, but yes I need to build hatches probably with twist lock of some sort on the corners and double gaskets to seal it up totally, there is a bilge pump in each pod so that's not my work just a another manufacture, but as projects go, repowering to diesel tock over priority's you understand I bet. time to go the Admiral will kill me if I don't get home. Have a Bubbly for me Fritz :P

Performance has not changed that I have noticed just it sits higher, now working on an engine swap that will change things.
