    XE-274H for the Cam and I'm thinking I'll stick with factory rockers.
    To answer your question, I'm not sure how it's going. I dropped it off at the machinists and I've been out of town since. I should call him just to check in and see what his schedule is.

    A quick update, Spring has been slow to come and cold. The good news is I finished up a bunch of other projects. The bad news is the boat project got put on the back burner.
    The engine should be in my hands hopefully within the next week. I'm waiting for the intake and Carb from Tom.

    The pump has been blasted, cleaned, painted and completely rebuilt. Once I finish the last coat of gel on the hull I will mount it up. I am hopeful to be on the water within the next couple of weeks depending on the weather.

    I will be finishing up the bottom gel tonight and flipping it over tomorrow to gel the top deck. That will go quickly as there is very little damage to fix so it should mostly be a prep and spray situation.

    maybe its just me but i don't think mine looks like his from the bottom.

    I know the feeling, seems like when I'm offering rides the bottom ends up looking more along these lines.

    That is too funny!! My Tahiti is a tiger and i feel like its a bit flatter hull if that makes sense.

    I think my Tahiti has the same bottom. As yours I think it was actually a Glasstron splash. It has a deep approach
