Pictures of the old boat in the water
After 18 years of (not ) non-stop work on it

When I think about it, I started this project while I was still using dial up, when I had not met my friends in Pennsylvania, in Louisiana, in upstate New York, in New England, or in Mystic. Had not enjoyed Cajun food and hospitality.
In those years I designed and built a house, started up , grew and sold a high tech business, bought and sold country cottages, and retired from my profession all the while being married to the same gal.

You can see the gas tank - temporary - the final one will be in the bow. Also the muffler
and the 2 cylinder ignition in one box.

The floor and the seating is all temporary so I can get the boat seaworthy.

Once the boat is "fettled" it will be put up on blocks in the boathouse till next May.
It will then be put on a trailer,and transported to the wood working shop where all of my woodworking stuff is located. The boathouse is about 120 yards away from the shop ( 1 way trip) -
too far to shlep the wood back and forth.

Looks great Miro. One question, what's the round thing between the manifold and the hull? :-)

That is the muffler (they were used on DisPro's that had St Lawrence engines mounted in them).
That particular one came with the engine so I used it.

You know - the kind of thing that ain't "legal" on authentic bateaux.

I have to add - it doesn't muffler very much so, maybe - I'm just trying to emulate the rich heritage of sounds of Louisiana up here in the Great White North :=}

Very nice!
Miro, you are so far ahead of me and my projects, only 18 years!

Here's the video of the first run on the water

I'm still learning - and this "learning experience" ( unlike so may others) will be fun.

Mirro

JB and the guys stopped by the house to pick up a couple of JB's engines and the passed the test by identifying the 3 round things on the floor as mufflers! I think were are making progress!

I did not realize how strict the La. state rules were about inboard mufflers

Thomas, a lot of the bateaus that run around down here run a dry straight pipe like they did in the old days. They are loud. I ran mine through the transom and I dump the discharge water into the exhaust, it's quieter. When I go to the wooden boat festival in Madisonville I insert a baffle in the exhaust to further quiet it, passing by once or twice is bearable, back and forth all day would be aggravating.
