Default Here's the rig

Well just about done and ready to get her wet.

I tore up all the rugs and put down 3/8" Seaboard (white).
Threw out as much wood as possible. Took off the side panels.
Threw out and rebuilt the engine box, 3/4 seaboard. Reworked
the stearn panel covering the transom inside w/ more 3/8 seaboard.

Had a friend make a Radar Arch(Bottle of Grey Goose)...Applied Ant... Got lights going on and some clamp-on holders. Little odd-n-ends before the
week is out...

Power washed and sanded the hull, fixed blisters, patched with water-tite
8-10 coats of Primer-Interprotect-bottom paint. All set!

New bow spot light, A few more gunnel holders, bait table, new starter,
spark plugs, etc.

All on the cheap...Or at least all done on my own.

Its taken about 2-3 weeks longer than I had hoped but she's nearly completion.

Not the most luxurios cruiser but its getting to be a decent fishin boat.

Next items, Raise the Bimini, new poles et al...Next year I think...

Thanx Freebie,

Today I moved the GPS onto the top of the Arch. Each job adds a
greater touch to the affect.

Got spreader lights next and clamp-on holders goin in.

Looks like it should be a really comfortable fishing machine. Best of Luck.

Here it s 12:40 EST

the rig is about 12 hours to splash down...

I move her today and got it ready to go.

Cleaned out the lower unit oil and filled back up.

New Rod holders in place.

I made some custom under gunnel rod holders that came out pretty nice
I;ll take a few pics of some of my handy work in the morning.

A buddy or mine who got the radar arch done is launching with me
We plan to get some lines wet... He had the idea to hit west marine
first... I said, no way! Get boat in and throw lines out first. Worry
about everything else later...

Let's just say. Bring it on!

Pictures in the morn.
