Good, I think the bellows need to be replaced because she took on a bit of water from our trip, but other than that good. We put in at Selfridge and went to Algonac and back, we also took a ride up near New Baltimore and we only used 11 gallons of fuel, I though that was pretty good.

Only thing that bothered me was that the OMC brochure that I found buried in the boat states that the normal operating range for this motor is 4600-5000rpm, but I could only get it to top out at 4400rpm and 56mph. After we got back in, I noticed that the prop is not the original. I think they came with a viper from the factory and this one said SST. I have a feeling that the size and pitch must be different than the original. I am debating purchasing a stock prop, or at least a prop with the stock size and pitch.

Here are a few pics. She needs a wax but I will wheel it myself in the spring.
