Looking good! looking good! looking good!

I have a paddle tucked away too. I kind of consider it more a decoration than something I could use to move the boat. I guess I can use it as a club to repel boarders. Haha

Hookset high back seats from bass pro. They were on sale for $38. They are great seats, used them in all my builds. Also yes the boat in this thread will be for sale when I get it finished up. The other boat is one I built for myself and will be keeping it for a while.

Wow that is a steal for those seats at that price. Looks like they are selling for $90 right now. I need to pull the trigger on some new seats and don't want to spend a fortune.

Yep, they changed the pattern on the seats. Sold the old ones off at about half price.

Thanks! Here’s a pic of the primer and paint I used. This stuff is strong and is super smooth once dry. I did a good 2 coats of primer. Once that dried I did 3 coats of the paint about 15 min in between each coat.
