more like- watch out Avenger! (I like them more than the Gause)...

your boat looks huge with the cap on. gonna be a damn nice setup for sure when it's complete. I really like the aft storage/fix boxes, gonna attempt something like that in my rebuild when the time comes. I assume they drain to the bilge just via a pipe through stringers?

for your t=top, are you going to go with a hard or soft top?

will the transom livewell be your primary/only livewell?


Yes, insulated fish boxes drain to bilge. Going with a fiberglass t-top. Transom live well is only one. Thought about leaning post livewell, but I really wanted to have 2 coolers on board. Frigid Rigid with cushion in front of console will be solely for food and beverages. Whatever cooler under leaning post will be for bait, fish, etc. Don't want to always have to dirty up fish boxes plus I can lift cooler out and carry to cleaning station.

May I suggest having the fish boxes drain to their own thru hull outside. The reason for this is to keep the fish scum, crap and stink out of the bilge area.

This is the electronics box for console. The push button switches will also mount in it under the Garmin fishfinder. Everything can be locked behind the starboard faceplate.

Kevin, the fishboxes are below floor so from my understanding they cant drain outside without a pump or having to be plugged while at rest. We more than likely will not be using them as "fish" boxes anyway, prob just storage or drink cooler, so into the bilge is ok with us. And yes I too like the bilge to be clean!

Looking good. I like those switches. That't great. I saw a build where they make Scuba tank holders so they would be below deck and not move about. When the lid was closed, it cinched it all down tight.

damn nice! can you ask- what type of aluminum did they use for the seat backrests? I have some cushions and planned on going that exact thing- just making them myself... but wasn't sure what type of aluminum to use so it's strong enough.

thanks.


open to anyone else with suggestions btw. (not to hi-jack the thread)

Thank you, Safe travels! and keep your eyes on the road on the way back... will be a distracting drive home for sure, trying to not look in the rear view mirror every 2 seconds.
