Cut out the center seat...plan to use to store batteries and other storage and electrical...
and I'll add as much foam board and other foam as I can fit!!!!


Image

Image

Also cut the rear seat for gas can storage and got some of the framing done in the stern

Image

Image

Framing is almost done...only a few more supports and ready for plywood and foam

Image

Image

Image

Image

just in case you were wondering....The transom board and transom cap are cut... they need to be sealed and painted. And then I'll have everything welded back in place!

Basically I still need to seal all the plywood and I plan to cover with carpet.
I used 1/2 CDX exterior plywood... pretty easy to work with.

I'll keep you posted once I get everything wrapped up... this project seems to never end!

And I got the seat mounts install... here's the one for the front

Need to get hatches cut and seal everything. And I need to try and get the transom done and welded.

I've sealed all the plywood with West Marine Epoxy Resin.... can anyone tell me if it needs to be scuffed up prior to applying the marine carpet glue?

Got the carpet to cover the plywood.... guess I have all winter to get that done now.
Been hunting and haven't had a chance to do much with the boat.

Those 3 hatches in the front are lovely!

Can you estimate your total costs to this point ?

Thanks... that's probably something I really don't want to think about. :)
Everything together... maybe $400-500... not counting the new bow mount trolling motor
All Aluminum + screws and rivets
plywood and styrofoam
epoxy resin
carpet and glue and staples
new seats and seat mounts
all wiring.... switch panel, fuse block, bus bar, and extra electronics :D
the list gets too long...
