Been at it this weekend.

Painted the floor under which the forward rod compartment will be. Awaiting some carpet that will go over that before I can fix those boxes in place.

Image

Boxes painted on the inside.

Image

Fitted the divider in the tackle storage hatches. Still nice and big hatches these!

Image

Been playing around with the cockpit layout. Made a slit under the seat, driver side still to be done. This will just give some more storage options. And easy access for bolting the seats down.

Image

Step in die middle over fuel tank will double up as a seat for a third person. Underneath a storage space with a shelf for cellphones and car keys and all those small things that just never have a space on a boat. Also adding a cellphone charger in there.

Image

Just a pic from the stern.

Image

And one from the bow.

Very nice work Wouter. You may have to buy more fishing poles to fill those rod boxes. :)

Vincent, for sure!! Will need to visit the tackle shop, not only for rods but all tackle. Those storage boxes are massive! :lol:
