|ericroline||I've been looking for a transom ladder for 3 yrs, the Cal 9.2 was available with one as an option, most did not pay the hi co$t that they charged. I found a used one at a fair prince $125, that was cheaper than the cost of tubing stock to make one from scratch... May the hot dog days of summer be with us, we will go swimming.....|

A new set of dikes (wire cutters).
I actually know where they are, just cannot hold my breath that long. You can have them if you want.

The obligitory profile shot:
With the cowling off (yeah I should have dusted it, but I think you can see it was stored away in a recently refurbed condition):
The carb, as an example of the shape it is in. That is a spot of lubricant on the choke linkage on top, not corrosion (there is none anywhere that I can find):
Yeah, I wish it was quieter, but if it is reliable and pushes the boat well I can get over that.

The carb and wiring looks like it has seen little if any use. The engine was repainted and the nuts have no tool marks. It runs well at idle and while it makes some noise at higher RPM, I can't wait to get out and see how well it will push the boat.

TNTC-too numerous to count (or remember). Suffice to say that we have an old boat that looks new and has a lot of new gear on it, and most importantly it's in the water. I'm happy .
