I had a chance to round over the edges, and make a couple more modifications. The prototype is now complete, and I am ready to make six of them.

Very cool. I can see that on my SK14 build. Dunno what a "cover" bit is though. I'm looking forward to seeing them mounted on you PH18.

Thanks Will!

Here are a couple more pics of some progress I made tonight.

These are the six holders I am going to shape like the prototype. And the mahogany dimensional stock will be cut into 8 wood blanks (two extra) and turned to replace the pine dowel that was used for the template.

I have a question about a drain for the main cockpit. I am planing on having the two through hull drains that go right out the side through the brass drain tube. However, they will typically be plugged.

I am considering one drain for the cockpit floor that goes to the bilge, where I have an automatic pump that dumps water out toward the top of the transom. Is that typically how a boat like this drains, or is it usually out a through hull that has a scupper?

I usually am a fair weather fisherman, and will typically be on calm water, so I figure simply running a drain to the bilge will suffice. Then, if I take a big wave on the rare occasion I am crossing some open water, or a heavy rain, I will have the two drains that go through the hull as back up.

Thoughts?
