    Donít be scared of revs, those 2l Suzukiís need to scream, you wonít get max v if you arenít well over 6k.

    I was told that it should max out at about 6000rpm. Think this is in the manual as well.
    If it goes over 6000rpm, then it needs a bigger prop.
    It did like to rev though.
    Felt so effortless.

    sounds like the water test came up with good results, hows the boat sit with the new motor , all good there, not to heavy.

    Perfect. Sat and rode like a dream.
    It is only 12kg heavier then what was on it, I moved the 60L fuel tank from under the transom to a 75L under the floor.
    The rebuild likely added a fair amount of weight forward too, as it's more heavily built then it was , and result, sits well.

    Getting there.
    Bimini on.
    Bilge pumps in, not wired in though.
    Floor sanded and flowcoat touched up. I laid down my EVA foam flooring. Looks pretty good I think. Not perfect, but functional.
    I got portside pocket in. Starboard not yet as needs a bit of modification.
    Got a little bit of wiring done. Batteries and isolator in, solar panel hooked up for my month away.
    Needs a bit of flowcoat touched up, but overall pretty happy.
    Another 3 or 4 days would be seen it finished, oh well, will finish it in a month when I get back from work.
    Photos attached.
    Those hoses are the fuel tank breathers, haven't got them sorted yet.
