Hinges are installed. These are the friction hinges from Gem Products. They will hold the lids partially open without the need for springs or struts.

Hi my name is Henk and I am addicted to Boat Porn :D

Thank you for such a nice fix with your great work, sure looks darn good. Spoke to the wife before I left for work abroad yesterday and it seems she's made peace with a Phantom being built at the latest starting early Dec. she just doesn't realize yet that it won't be finished in the same month, or might be in Dec but most definitely not in the same year!

Can't wait to start and with updates like these, you are just making me more and more restless :lol:

I took the same route. Told her I was building a boat in the garage. No time frame. I think that she thinks it's going to be quick because the stitch and glue part came together fast and it looks like a boat now. Little does she know the inside is the time consuming part. Glad I have enough space for the build and her car in the garage. :D

It's been a while since I've posted. I've been working on the boat pretty regularly but not much that's picture worthy. Most of the wiring is done, and I have some questions for the forum. I have starting and house batteries, connected with a Blue Sea add-a-battery kit. How should the Bob's jack-plate and trim tabs be wired? Is it recommended that they go directly to a battery so they're always "on" or should they be enabled only when the battery switch is on? For the jack plate at least it seems to me it could/should go directly to the battery, and I don't see why the trim tabs couldn't also. Should they both go to the house battery? The jack plate wiring is fused already and I would fuse the trim tabs from the battery post. Also, is it recommended to put dielectric grease on all connections? Do you use a little or a lot? Thanks in advance for your help.

I wanted to pass this along, cause I think it's pretty cool. To support my wires I started out using cable clamps attched with screws, so I'd overdrill, fill, then install as usual. These Weld Mount devices have made placing wire supports much easier, especially in hard to reach places such as the console. I got them off ebay, $33 for 25 tie mounts. The adhesive sets up quickly and holds very well.
