    Use quality stainless steel hardware, You dont list engines or outdrives , but outdrives are nominally 2 1/4 inches thick. I would guess inboard transoms should be the same thickness

    Serious leak from transom area

    It looks like a case of Bravoitis too , that may be the deciding factor for replacement

    Serious leak from transom area

    Replacement is your best option ,that leak has been there for a very long time post 2 in here I`ll check for another video but you locate the center, drill the first hole with a #3 drill 3/8ths deep.Then switch to a 1/8 inch. Watch the filings coming out. First is aluminum, then brass, then steel, now STOP Tap 1/4 x 28 for the grease fitting and grease. http://www.clubsearay.com/index.php?threads/how-to-install-the-missing-grease-fitting-that-prevents-steeering-arm-water-leakage.68348/#post-775729

    I would add the missing grease fitting to the new or reconed housing . It will prevent rusting of the steering pin that takes out the seal. Very easy install on all the drives

    Balance point

    With the correct size trailer, having the correct sized wheels and axels adjusted correctly for weight distribution , you adjust the tongue weight correctly , job done.

    Fresh Water Plumbing with PEX?

    If your worried about the hot water side , blow the lines dry with a small compresor If your worried about the raw water side, just open the drain , remove the hoses at the block, blow dry with a compressor . If your going to add AF to the motor to winterize add a jumper hose at the motor , pour the AF into the block and manifolds Your trying to reinvent the wheel instead of keeping it simple

    Cooling System Penta: Outdrive or through-hull?

    An outdrive uses the water from the inlets to cool the drive oil. With a thru hull pickup ,what happened to the hose coming from the transom?

    Winterizing Help

    Really havent figured out what your trying to do. You flush, fog, and then drain the engine, manifolds, cool fuels, etc. Open the drain valve on the water heaters raw water side and drain. . Turn on the fresh water pump and open the faucets and drain the tank. Open the cold water inlet pipe and blow air thru the hoses draining them No need to fill the raw water side of the hot water tank. Remove the hoses on the engine and pour the AF into the engine, manifolds and elbows.

    Winterizing Help

    are you raw water cooled or fresh water cooled .You say raw water cooling from the port engine goes thru the water heater and then you mention heat exchanger. Is the heat exchanger the the water heater unit? Most heaters have a pressure /heat valve at the bottom of the tank or have a valve to drain the tank.

    Engine Removal Proceedure

    Last one I did I was a 31 Formula twin. Unhooked the lift screw, ties a rope around the hatch and supported it vertically , straight up.Then pulled the motor Or carefully lay it rearward as much as possable and support the edge hanging off the stern

    Engine Removal Proceedure

    If its the boat in the pic and the engine hatch/cover is part of the rear deck , locate a higher lift point, stand/support hatch upright, lift motor up and out, move boat, place motor on pallet
