I missed the posting of you getting the primer on. She does look very nice!

Thanks guys ! We worked very hard to get to this point and yes it is very satisfying you almost get the false sense of the boat being done for a lil bit then you remember you still have the inside :lol:

Great job with the primer coat Salty! After all that fairing and sanding, finally seeing your hull primed and smooth, has got to feel good!
I look forward to seeing your bold color choice of citrus green with the black graphite bottom. Going to look "wicked pissa" (Boston slang for really nice)

Salty...
My console dimensions....picture is before i finished closing in the chase tube area with an access door.
Total height 45"...... 40" from floor to top of steering wheel... 36" " high to throttle lever in neutral. Seat height on front of console is 16" high.
Total width 26" .....at controls side of the console(back)... then tapers to 18" wide at the front of the bow facing seat.
I tapered the console front to back to match the narrowing of hull towards the bow. This leaves ample space on each side of the console to get by.
Total depth ...front to back is 32" deep ..... 16" for console 16" for seat.
I drive standing up most of the time... I'm 6' tall. I sit on a combo cooler/seat which I raised off the floor with a 6" high extension. In the sitting position I still can see directly in front of the boat with no problem.
