Have not seen any updates lately, last post you mentioned you were getting busy. Hope all is well.

Thanks! With all the stuff I am bolting on this boat I figured it would be wise.

I could not remember what size motor Mark had on his boat. I am planning on the 115 HO.

Thanks!

Yes it has been very very busy. For me March and April are quite busy with work, tax season, helping people with investments, etc.

Finally I hope to get some time back on the boat.

Here is one update of some glass my brother in law and I put on the console - specifically the cut out where the speaker goes.

Ahhh, nice to see you getting a little free time! It would be nice seeing that beautiful boat on the water but have missed seeing your craftsmanship in action.

Thanks OrangeQuest!

Here is today's progress. I got the first three rod holders epoxied into position. The tolerances of these things are within 1/8th to 1/2 inch in each direction. The back rod holder is for a switch rod, with the one I am eyeing having a 4 3/4 butt section, so I made the tolerance 5 1/4. It had to hang low enough not to hit the gusset. The lowest rod holder had to be high enough so the bottom of the reel was not rubbing on the floor, and the middle one had to split the difference top to bottom and allow a person to take the rod off the holder without them bumping the rod above. Then they are all three angled downward a tad toward the three holes in bulkhead B. It took a few hours to dial in but I think I have it right where I want it.

Next up will be the other three, and then the three I made to hold the net.

With all 6 rod holders now epoxied into place I am proceeding with sanding all the lockers. I then plan to seal all the dry hatches with two coats of epoxy and the live well and bait well with three, before I do any fairing on the inside of the lockers. I should not have to fair much because the area of each locker that is seen should not be all that bad to fair out. They look pretty nice and flat already.

Once the fairing is complete I plan for one more coat to seal the fairing compound, then the rails to be epoxied into place, and then on goes the paint. I plan to paint the op of the rails after I rout the gutter. The paint I purchased is gray. Hopefully this section comes together well.
