Today was the big day with the sea trial after the repower.  All went well and I was very impressed with all the work that has been done.  This TSF 30 should be around for many years to come.…Continue

Have finally been making some progress on the woodwork.  As the boat has been indoors for the repower thought the teak could use some help.  After stripping the original and epoxy fills for the seams…Continue

Hey John,  finally got out this afternoon to test.  Engine fires up no problem. Lots of tests and revs at the dock.  No issues.  Idled well, forward and reverse, no problem .  Got away from the dock no problems. 30 min run at several rpms.  Then as I'm almost back.  Stalled. I did find a small amount of fuel beside the carb. It may be running rich or it just flooded because I had just come off plane about 3000 rpm to idle.  

It's pretty frustrating because everything else is looking and running great.  I'm going to run it for about 2hrs on Tuesday or Wednesday.  See what happens. 

Hows your boat. Have you got it wet yet?
