Neat idea on the center floor. Is it basically a hanging floor suspended by the four pieces of wood bolted to the sides? That's a pretty cool way of not having to build bracing and supports underneath. Do you get any sag in the middle of the floor?

Nice job on a nice boat!!

Nice looking rig.
Like how pinned down the floating floor and the 2 tone paint job.
The trailer with old fashion hub caps is cool too.
How's the Johnson 5.5 hp? It would look sweet with that setup.
