Thanks, Maine Sail. I agree impressive pictures and thorough description. But what's even MORE IMPRESSIVE, is the condition of your bilge. My God, Maine, you could melt butter and eat lobsters out of that hold. Nice set up!!!

One quick verification: It looks as though your set up has the flywheel facing forward, hence your motor mount comments should be reversed (e.g. loosen water pump end mounts, undo flywheel end mounts) if my shaft log is a straight shot aft of my tranny. Right?

Also, a follow-up on the alignment. Just how do you do that? I mean, I get the up/down setting of the motor mounts, but how do I know when it's centered. And is there a port/starboard setting?

Thank you very much!
