There's a lot of room in there and all the other places. Not sure how it'll feel to have an uncluttered boat.

If it were mine, it wouldn't be uncluttered for very long.

Haha. Come to think of it I said the same thing about my garage.

Got the floor in up where the batteries go and added more foam up front so it'll have more than it did from the factory.

Also mocked up a shifter handle using 1/2" 6016T6 rod from Onlinemetals and then bored out two galvanized nuts between nylon washers. I'm thinking the inside nut will get JB Weld and the outside one will get a pin. Connecting the shifters with 1/4 aluminum rod from Lowes and two female rod end bearings from Carnell Sales. The shifter handle is from Crowley. Total parts about $40. Trying not to put new holes in the steering bracket.

I expect to be fishing in 2 or 3 years. Heh.
