      • I see nuttin butts flex issues there. So...……………...
        Put some more wood across the tank for support of the floor. You do not want soft spots. That's what I see now, JMHO.
        Max 24" best 16" on centers.
        Best would be to notch out those side rails, cut would to fit and lay on the vertical grain for best strength/flex.
        Place some neoprene under the vertical wood to avoid issues.
        Looking good.

          Hey KC thanks for the advice. you're right the piece of wood itself it very flimsy.
          we tried reinforcement from the back side with 1708 but still too flexible.
          Next plan is to add stiffeners

          • We worked on the tank area yesterday.

            the glueing of the cleats seems fine we still need some minor grinding to finalize it. amazing how many time we need to use this tool in boat restoration !

            we re-inforced the wood pannel by adding some wood on the vertical grain as suggested by KC.
            only with the woods screwed in place it feels strong but we added 2 ply of 1708 on each side to get sure. Still under cure so load test will be next time. by load testing I mean me and my brother... about 400 pounds :-)

            We finally found the correct hoses for the fuel tank so we installed fill and vent line with dual clamp and did a gas pouring test to ensure that we have no leak at the clamps.

            other than that was small jobs here and there, foaming the fuel chase and the deck.
            putting back some foam plugs with PB.
            re-installing the fuel tank level with a new gasket, ground wiring for the tank... nothing really visual.

            The temp is now close to 0°C so getting a good temp for glassjob becomes a challenge

            more next time :-)

                • Hello folks

                  It's been a while since we did not post any update. Project is still going on but we are really slowed down by the temperature here.

                  Since the last post we completed the deck above the fuel tank and finished foaming and pluging back the rest of the floor.

                  the fuel tank cover was stenghtened again with 2 ply of 1708 on each bracket.

                  We finished the small work on the fuel tank, hoses, wiring, clamping...
                  the clamps on the fuel hose have been loctited to ensure long term holding
                  I added ground wired and directed them to the engine bay for future connection.
                  The fuel pickup line is installed bacwarkd to have a better curve and goes through the bulckhead by a piece of PVC pipe that we PB'in with a downward slope to minimise the water splash inlet. (just added safety)

                  We installed only a single access hatch over the fuel level transmitter. the idea is to minimize water ingression risk.

                  If we need to access the other connection point we will drill holes later and re-install a hatch.

                  The temp in the hangar is now below 0°C and it gets difficult to have a proper working temp while keeping easy access to the part we need to glass.

                  So we have siwtched to the refurbishment of the outdrive. It is in pretty decent shape but still needs a paint of coat and new gasket, bellows, hose etc.

                  Not sure If i open a new thread in different section of the forum or keep in this one? what do you guys think?

                  • I might think in the engine dept you may want to open up a new thread. Just so the motor guys can directly see what you are asking instead of your whole thread.

                      • I've always viewed these threads as a place to document your build in its entirety. If you have specific questions that aren't being answered here post it in the appropriate section. I'd say keep it all here.

                              I agree. That's why my motor rebuild was a separate thread in the outboard section last Winter. Many of the motor guys don't ever seem to venture into this section.
