thanks for the reply. I have made the purchase of the 36T, but not without some hard work. During the haul-out we found multiple blisters, most on one side, none larger 2" dia. So it is on the hard waiting to be scraped, dried to 5%, epoxied and finished. Anything you can offer that I should be on lookout for, would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
BTW the engine/transmission sounds great. Had to replace the cutlass bearing and shaft coupling, though.
