Not sure if you guys are still interested in the updates, but heres one. small, but still going.
i installed a new rub-rail, and since i was on my own i had to get creative. so i drilled two holes in the end and strapped it to the jeep to stretch it

Luke, The rub rail looks great and quite innovative to accomplish a rub rail install by yourself!! Boat is really starting to look good!! Keep the updates coming!! Jeff

Thanks guys. the jeep does it all, lol
i mocked up the gauges and steering wheel. i need to remove them to clean up the console. then i can install the gauges and put the console in the boat to start the wiring process. :cry:

i got a bit of work done this weekend. Got the switches and ing. mounted. i have 2 bilge pumps because my uncle had 2 also, he didn't want to take the chance that something would break and start to fill the engine compartment up fast. will try to start on the wiring this weekend.

Luke, You need to make the underside of the center console look as nice as the topside with the gauges!! Boat is really looking nice now!! Jeff
