Looks really good and at the rate you're going you'll be done in no time !!
But then again are we ever really done with modifications ??
There is the "snowball" effect and I've learned that very well with my Mustang II.
I'm going to assume it works the same way with boats too......And probably airplanes even or anything else we decide to improve. Maybe I'll try to mod a submarine to see if those become an obsession too lmao.

Thats the truth. I built a Harley about a year ago and I'm still coming up with different things to do to it. Same with this boat. I almost get one thing done with it and I already have more ideas. The floor is not the last.....got more ideas....lol

Looks really good! Thats a really neat idea to use the under-floor space as storage. Simple. Clean. Nice job!!

Thanks! It did turn out better than I thought. I can fit 6 or 8 rods in the floor. I wish it was finished but the further I go the more ideas I have!

That turned out great. Really like all the storage compartments you made.

Hi, nice job on the Foremost. Just picked one up almost exactly like that one. I was just wondering how steady it is on the water with the front floor raised to bench height? Are there alot of rocking going on? Thanks
