Here's some photos of the 57 Alumacraft Deep C I've been working on. Just about ready for my big spring trip... You can see some of the more interesting bits like wood floors.... seat sliders... trolling motor speed controller..... homemade windshield.... homemade seats..... etc...

Shakedown cruise this weekend to be sure all systems are go. Lots of first time tests on new ideas. Trolling motor forward controls, seat slides and tandem motor steering worked as planned.... Ready for a week chasing Walleye and Musky at Dale Hollow in April.

that is beautiful, reminds me of my great grandpa's boat back in the day. Thanks for the memory trip. I learned to waterski behind it when I was 7 yo. :)

Very nice great job on the outboard too, it's like stepping back in time. My uncle use to have a boat like that we use to fish Grand Lake in Oklahoma.

thank you gents. I think we all probably have the same story about the old days.... That's the way I like to build them. The older I get the more I enjoy stepping into a time machine...
