And because I had nothing else to do I built a custom Genset out of a Perkins .5 liter diesel to run my 2000 watt AC inverter.

This boat was converted to a I/O back in 1964 (based on the engine date code) and because the splash well was cut out there needed to some kind of structure added back in so they wrapped the surround in mahogany. The old surround was junk so a new one was built from mahogany as well.

Now on to the interior panels with doors and access points where needed. The large door on the port side allows for the galley table to be stored inside it when not needed.
