fishwipt, I got them from bateau a year or so ago, but not sure if they still have them because as I understand their supplier quit making them. But I am very happy with the quality of the hatches.... hopefully they can find another supplier!

Got an update from the painter the other day. All that is left is to paint the bottom. You can really see how much the tinted epoxy yellowed on the bottom (from chine down) as compared to the white decks.

Got a port mandfield duck hunt planned for the weekend, and pick up the boat sunday on my way home. More excited about picking the boat up than hunting, which is saying something cause Mansfield hunts are hard to beat.

That bow light is awsome.!! Didn't know they exited, otherwise I would also have gotten one!

Unfortunately I have already purchased a standard one! :doh:

Dustin,

This thing looks great on the trailer. Saw you in Kenedy today and gave you a thumbs up. Can't wait to see this thing on the water. Nice work.

xf20corpus, remember seeing you going down the road! I was just headed back with the boat from Rockport. Thanks for the kind words!

Here are a few photos of the boat back at the house...has a couple of areas that need to be touched up, but my painter and I talked and he said to just bring it back once it is rigged out and he would take care of them as well as any touch ups that may be necessary due to damage during rigging.

Pretty darn happy with the results and color!!

Been plugging away at the rigging on the boat. Hoping to have everything wrapped up by the end of the weekend.

Motor re-hung and all control and steering is in. Wiring is all pulled, now just need to get the rats nest cleaned up.

Electronics pop-up works and I think it looks pretty slick:
