You just lost your most important motivation factor, it's now officially a boat again. Keep it up & get it done!

Update on my project...

After doing a quick carb kit and cleaning for all 3 carbs, i also bought a new fuel pump. Seems to have fixed the issue with low idle stalling.

Here's what she looks like now:
