There are only two seasons in Vermont: boating season, and boat-building season.

Hey VT_Jeff thanks! I am pushing for a saturday launch! So much to do so little time!

Do you have your motor yet? That changed all ideas for me once I realized I needed to raise my transom motor mount to get the cavitation plate level with the hull bottom.

Yes, I have a 20" Honda 20hp. I kept the transom height correct when I upsized, just didn't consider the ends.

Ok ya just a bit of hardwood trim might do the trick to cover up the gunnel deck to transom transition.

What level of finish did you have on the floor before you installed the Seadek? Was it topside? Trying to decide how much time I want to spend on my floor before I cover it with Seadek.

My deck was finished completely with 4 coats of Awlgrip. I could have just done the edges but I wanted waterways showing in between the Seadek pcs so I finished the whole deck.

She is ready to launch! Put in 12 hours of work today tackling the punchlist of last minute items. At 6pm was able to test the outboard in a 55 gal drum. Extremely pleased that all looks good.
Still need to wire up the bilge but everything else is done.

The bar has been raised! Do you coach pole vaulting? You should.

Definitely raised the bar. That is one beautiful boat! I hope it runs and performs as good as it looks and gives you all the satisfaction on the water that you deserve for such fine work. Eager to see the performance reports from your water tests.

Congratulations and well done!
