This is my new 1965 Johnson seahorse 3hp motor. results of the leakdown test were 3%. New recoil, rebuilt carb, new points, perfectly clean fuel tank. Starts the first time every time. Thanks Dad!!!!! He found it in Maryland, bought it, had it shipped to his house, and did a cosmetic restoration. Needless to say a big thank you is in order.
Tomorrow, the boat will be flipped again. The interior will be sealed and primed. the deck will be completed along with the bow seat.. i will also make some corner knees. Tuesday, the final paint will be applied, rubrails stained and installed plus any small details taken care of that I may have missed. I will also get a home-built title, and register the boat. I am unbelievably excited for my first launch. It should float just fine.
