Heading down to the property this Sunday for a week. Got my Hulliner, carpet, motor, wiring, and the last of the rigging stuff either there now or en-route. Gonna be a busy week in the boat. I'll post pictures when I get back.

Well, things didn't go as planned but I did stay busy on the boat.
The unplanned issues were the motor delivery guy couldn't make delivery while we were there. (The boat he was transporting wasn't on a proper trailer) and the upholstery guy was having doubts on the job and stalled out. Got both back moving but will have to wait till our July 2-10 trip to install.

I did get the boat back on the rotisserie.

Some of the parts I had to put on.

Image

Image

With the boat upside down, I was able to get the huliner put in. I used a landau top sprayable contact cement. It won't release with heat like other spray glues. This stuff gets applied thru an old style spray gun.

Image

I decided to add a horizontal transom stiffener. Well basically a shelf to attach filter and pumps to.

Image

Image

I got the mechanical trim indicator cables run and the shifter cable.

Image

Image

I carefully installed my new coast guard capacity decal.

Image

I was able to get the rigging hoses and two of the six cable bezels installed. (The other four bezels are with the motor.)

Image

Can't see them all but grab handles and mushroom cleats were installed.

Image

Image

I buffed out the top side of the boat and put the cover on it.....

The carpet is at Phil Blomquist's flooring store in Spokane. He has a HS and drove over last year to check out the boat (3 hr drive!!) He wanted to install the carpet this trip but was too busy. Hoping for July. All the proper colored wiring, fittings, and heat shrink is with the motor as is the trim pump, battery box, fuel pump bracket, jack plate, etc... etc....

For those who aren't on the HydroStream owners FB page, The Frost your nuts run is scheduled for Oct. 15th with the 16th as a rain day. :up:

If I don't have any issues during break-in I will be there.
Heading back down in 8 days. Forgot to post July's trip progress. Motor on and running. Will update my other thread on the build.
