I'm certainly convinced that you've got yourself a boat there! :)

Nice layout and finish work on the inside. With all the beer posters in your garage -- smart move to add the in-console drink holders. Lets make sure those are insulated to protect from that hot Texas sun. Looks like a lot of muscle on the back end too. Give us an update when you put 'er in the water.

Cheers!

Haha thank you. Of course the drink holders are large enough to accomodate a koozie! I forgot to mention, when I took the boat in for the motor a guide named Kevin Shaw (Stiffy Push Poles/ fiber-tex owner) saw my boat in the shop and offered me a job that day. So now I do fiberglass repairs and will assist with his new poling skiff production boat! Now if I could just remember to study for classes....
I hope I dont screw this up!

Daniel, She sure is beautiful. I like your use of "starboard" for console top. If you ever get close to Ocala, FL. We'll take your beauty and mine in to the boat places and show them off. Cottontop :D 8O 8O 8O 8O 8O

No drain on the cup holders, they had holes but I sealed them off with some marine adhesive. Im sure water will build up in the rain, but oh well!

Thanks Cottontop, I know we both started around the same time, and when I saw you finishing up I knew I had to kick it in gear. Your boat turned out wonderful, I was pretty jealous that I still had so much work. I spent 2 weeks straight to finish her up. Don't tell the coast guard but im gonna sneak her on the water today for a little test ride!

Corpus, I am living in Aransas Pass now at ICW trailer park. Let me know if you want to stop by sometime, it would be a treat.
