Well her she is guys, sorry haven’t posted lately. It’s been a journey with the move and restaurant. I’ve been able to find a little time at night here and there to work on her.

It’s been an experience to say the least on a good note. Boats lacking hatch lids, trolling motor and power pole, saving up for them. If anybody has anything listed above for sale please let me know.

Boat looks good Travis. Have you had a chance to run it yet? Also how does the weight compare to before?

Thanks Guys, I have not ran it yet but will as soon as I get the hatch lids.

I opted to build the cooler rack and lean post myself all out of aluminum etched primed and painted with bed liner. Saved about $600. I’m not a great tig welder but got it done and it’s solid.

Got my lean post cushion built last night. Took advantage of the Jo Ann’s app coupons got 60% off the marine vinyl and foam. Pretty good deal if anyone is looking, just download the app and they send you coupons on app. Working on lean post tackle storage for lean post now.

Area in red will be drawers, thinking of using the star board built to accept the tackle trays.

Jeff do you guys have anything like that I could use that would be like star board. Thanks
