    No more like a lynching. His boat did not provide proper service.

    Yeah, that's what the neighbors said too!!!

    Actually, I am installing new transom/gimble housings and an overall inspection, possible rebuilding of the transom while I'm in there.

    I believe I have found the source of the problem~! Plus the gimbal housings, Inside and out, are basically a pile of dust.
    Both engines out now, transom assemblies out of there. Replacing with new inner and outter housing, Both Y pipes. Let the fun begin.

    There ws soo much moisture in the transom, that the top bolts that hold the houseing to the inner plate, rusted in two.
