Thanx Jeff,

Still a ways to go! But ala CL, taking bite size chunks out of the elephant at the moment!

Been working on the panel that will hold the throttle control. Offset it so it will be out of the way of my leg. :lol:

This is the back side, I've just glued it in place with epoxy fillet, should I glass it as well..? Or will this suffice with a few coats of epoxy.

The smaller rectangular cutt out is for the Trolling Mode switch.

That looks great! Nice idea on the recess. 8)

Are your gunwales tying into mount?

Hi Barry,

That's correct, the deck and gunwale will form part of the completed structure.

Here's my quick artist impression of the plan.

Blue is the deck and the green is a cross section of the gunwale that will run from stern to bow.

Some progress on the trailer. Bunks and winch fitted. Still designing some custom mudgaurds, but will fit cheap off the shelve ones in the mean time just to get it registered. Also still needs a lick of paint.
