Transom has been drilled for the top holes, still need to measure and drill the lower holes. But I also need to order some parts from CMC because the last owner snapped the upper ram bolt and bent the lower ram bolt. They just ran it like that for awhile and ended up damaging the mounts.

First trial run at the lake was a great success! Now I am just working on little fit and finish items, carpet, trim work, wiring, the fun stuff.
