Motor Well / Splash Well
I have cut and fitted all the parts for the splash well and things are looking good. My good friend Art Atkinson came over and helped me lift my 40 hp Johnson outboard onto the transom. I wanted to see if I was going to have enough clearance before I epoxied everything into solid state. Well, the answer was not really. On the first attempt the motor did not fit on the transom because it measured 2 1/2" thick so I got out my router once again and cut away. Now the transom width measures 2 1/4" and the motor slipped right into position and the clearance around the splash/motor well is good. So now, I need to get at drilling two drain holes and start to epoxy everything into position.
