Thank you Sir. I put a 1/4" cleat for the spray nozzle, it's a little hard to see in the pics.

I'm loving the bungee cord deal. Honestly if I thought about it before I might have built the rear deck differently. It's an easy lightweight way to separate areas, kinda like a truck bed divider.

Really nice work. Do you know what you are going to do about a trailer?

Thanks guys.

I have a basic idea of which trailer I'll go with, and I've looked at a few. The issue is I need to fit it in a 19'6" garage, so I need it to have a swing tongue. I'd like an aluminum trailer this time, but it needs to be the "cheaper" style where the rails come together while still under the hull and a galvanized tongue extends the rest of the way. I was just going to get another galvanized trailer, but there is only maybe a $300 difference these days.

So I've been in analysis paralysis for a few days over the console. I finally decided on a semi direction and made a cardboard mock up real quick.

4357

4358

I'm trying to make a sit stand console. I stand most of the time while operating, but sit on long runs. I'll have a tall cooler as a seat. I'm 6'3" so it's gotta be tall enough, but I don't want it to be overpowering for the boat. So here we are. It's 26" wide and hides lots of stuff under her. I think it looks big, but it's hard to tell without all the decks and such installed. I looked at other boats about this size and some have consoles just as big, some are half the size. I'm hoping to cut plywood tomorrow, so I gotta figure it out.

Huh? There are rules that use buckets!? 8O :doh:

That explains the bucket the yard stick left on the ribs.

It's a technical formula.

1/2 bucket R x 3.14 / Shoe size

Ok actually the buckets are just holding the cardboard up, it's kinda flimsy. I have so many yard sticks, t-squares, measuring tapes...... but I can never find one when I need it. I opened a drawer today and found 5 tapes.
