Continued work on the panels that hide the fuel tanks. I am drilling holes that are for screwing down the panels to the stringers and a couple other blocks in the corners.

Dang, that flexi thing on your drill! My life is incomplete until I get one. I got tool envy. Nice build, I hope to see it some day at the Port A boat show in April.

Thanks Dougster! That would be great if I could be done by April 2020. But maybe April 2021.

The flex extension I picked this up years ago and the part that holds the drill bit I got at Rockler. It came in a set with 6 or 7 different sizes to hold various drill bits.

Can you guys think of a situation where going up to the 150hp would be an issue? I overbuilt the transom with three 1/2 sheets and 4 layers of biaxel, and two stringers in the middle coming all the way up to the deck. The floor added even additional glass and support. I could probably go up to 300hp to be honest, the way it is built. I dont have any concern but was curious.

Sounds like you built the hull is plenty strong enough for 150hp.
I probably wouldn’t do it though.

I'm with Richard. That boat will scream with a 90hp, you'll get much better fuel efficiency, and you won't have to worry about the transom, gunwales, or stringers coming loose. Plus you will sit higher at rest or when idling. You are building her fat already, which is fine, but a 150 is kinda big for her.

However, she's yours, and a 150 would be fun! :help:

The new G2 115 and 150 will share the same block and weight. Depending on the price difference it may be worth getting the 150 and operating the boat conservatively.
