Next weekend maybe finish prepping the bottom and put on a coat of the bottom paint. Launch in early april. I can't wait to see if the new prop is going to help with boat speed and heading into waves.
Put a cable tie around it to hold the vanes in the proper direction and compress them for easy insertion, then cut it off once the impellor is 1/2 way in.
