Thanks guys. As soon as I get this thing in the water, I'm sure it will be an adventure (well, so will the refurb). Currently the boat is at Buzzards Bay, so the Cheasapeak is a ways away yet.
Yeah, I see lots of info, and all sorts of possibilities... not only is my hull going to be a hole in the water for my cash, but a huge time sink as well. I spent last evening reading the old electric boat flame war thread, as I was pondering going electric instead of gas outboard with mine. Interesting reading here!
