The hatchet was my sole cutting tool for the whole project. The cooler has frozen beers inside leftover from the winter storm last week.

looking good grizzle. Is the electrical from the front to the back going to be in conduit on the side or is it going under the floor or something else?

It will be along side gunwale through ribs and in wire loom. All connections will be heat shrunk and elec paint taped.

I would kill for a garage to work in. I have so much that needs to go in my boat that needs to be 5200'd in but its too damn cold.

I ran mine through 1.5" pvc conduit using 1 hole clamps. I have plenty of room for upgrades and I dont have to worry much about water infiltration and dont have to worry about my wires being pulled or damaged in a moment of carelessness. Either way, stop talkin and start working!

I luck out with that garage. Its a bay at the fd where several of my buddies are working. Its pretty much used for storage and vehicle maintenance.

I haven't read every post, so forgive me if perviously asked, but how much weight would you guess your front deck added?

Looking to do something similar to my jon.

Boat is almost complete, I'm saying about 95%. Still have to mount the grab bar and run the electric.

I got the deck painted, made the tiller ext, cut out holes for speakers, replaced the TT motor, and some other small things the other day. I just ordered the trolling motor today...with a little bit of luck I'll be fishing her next week.

No pictures...lame I know but when I got done the other day I didn't feel like cleaning all the crap out of it to pose for a picture. Friday should be the final completion day..minus the trolling motor unless it delivers in miraculous time.

Well minus the live well she's pretty much done. I decided to do away with the extended tiller it just didn't work out.

Looks good Grizz

You'll like the stick-it pin. Go get one 2" stainless steel rings and get a piece of 1/4" rope making a 1foot loop. Double the string through the loop then loop it through your cleat. This works as a quick anchor point when you just need to barely hold you in place vs shoving it in for a good hold. It holds the stick more vertically.

If you don't like the threaded pipe sticking up I made this mount out of PVC snaps on and off for a few bucks.

Looks good grizz. Is the cooler there as a platform for sight fishing?

It doubles as that for sure! Amazing how that little bit of height helps with seeing so much. It also is great for some bow weight. I fish solo a lot and with a 50hp on her shes a little heavy in the trunk with 2 batteries and 12 gallons.

Boat is complete. Installed the Livewell and all that goes with it today. Easily removable for hunting season. Will keep tons of bait alive and fish alive all day.
