Hey, when the hull is being pulled together theres that big red clamp thing he is using. What is that called? and those tabs that it is attached to are those there when you got the kit or did you weld them on then cut them off later? thanks

The tabs are part of the bottom and cut off later. I also cut holes in them to attach straps.

Engine is in. Need to build some thicker shims and then slide it back and weld the motor-mount mounts into place.


When you are installing the engine do you need to have a engine allignment tool or can you eye ball it? also should the umhw be installed before or after the engine?

I just eye-balled it, we'll see how long the coupler lasts. I think the sea-doos require a tool.

Yes, the UHMW should go on before the engine and fuel tank and such, but I was in a hurry to get on the water. Should only take an hour or so to gut it.
