While it rained all day today I went to get some supplies to do my live-well. I picked up about $20.00 bucks worth of materials for the mod. I picked up a 600 GPH pump for $12.99, and some odds and ends for the plumbing. I got most of the plumbing done.

Perchin, I am going to steelflex my v-hull also. Am I going to need a belt sander to pre-sand my boat or is a manual hand held sanding block enough? I spoke to Jerry at Fasco and I told him I already had a strong coat of paint on the bottom. He said to just sand the bottom a little, then acetone, then apply the steelflex. At the time I didn't ask him if I needed to belt sand it or if a quick manual sand is enough. ..? I thought I would ask you since you recently went through this....thx man

Manual sand is all you will need.
LEFT is right! The reel handle is properly oriented when it is on the left side.

You should be fine with giving it a once over by hand using either 60 or 80 grit. Seems like a high abrasive..... it is you want that stuff to grab hold of some grooves. Good luck man. 8)

Spent $43.00 on a 800 GPH Tsunami thru-hull live well pump today, and it came with the SS strainer. I'm not so sure this is a great deal, but after finding them online, and seeing the outrageous shipping prices, I decided to pay the extra $5 from the local marine shop. Oh yeah also there was a $2 thru-hull fitting in that 43 dollar total.

QUESTION.................
I'm going to be mounting the pump to the transom below the water line. So when the pump is not in operation will it still allow water to fill up the line past the pump and continue to fill the livewell??? I really hope not, if so I need a new plan [-o< . Thanks to anyone who can give me a definate answer. :?

Little more progress...... slow moving these days. Not enough time to fish, work, and work on the boat.

My wife got her hands dirty today helping me finish the front deck and carpet the main floor.

Well I got the front deck fully carpeted, the framing for my side storage done on both sides. Tomorrow it will be just framing the rear deck, and finishing up the side storage. My wife used trash bins for the inside of the front hatches and just cut the bottom of the bins to fit the contour of the boat. :)

Was hoping to finish her off today, but ran out of rivets to fasten down the rest of my decking. :roll: Installed the Livewell pump, my wife put the last of the decals on the back.
Whatcha guys think?
