ok. moving right along out here in Lawrenceville, GA! Fit the plywood for the lower deck, cut backing for the back side of the middle bench to prepare for the step, designed a side and rear bench as well.

the side bench will accommodate a large storage container (i'm building it around a shallow cooler), 2 cupholders, a small glove box (wallet, keys, ect), and the electrical panel.

ran out of sealant on the lower deck but managed to seal that and the backing to the middle bench. going to let that dry, purchase more sealant, flip 'em over and keep on trucking!

I'm going on a fishing trip with one of my work vendors this weekend in Florida on his massive boat, so my updates will more than likely resume Sunday or Monday night.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

whats up guys. been busy the last 5 days and had some time last night to finish up the framing on my boat. I will be out of town again for the next week or so and am planning on having the top deck and carpet for everything laid by Saturday the 22nd.

attached are a couple pics of the two large sized red snapper I caught this past weekend in the Atlantic off of Daytona, Florida. the larger one was 30 pounds! my buddy Paul said it was the biggest he's ever pulled in the boat. now, these Snapper are apparently "endangered" and are out of season right now so we had to deflated them and release every one we caught. Grouper weren't really hitting that day.

Great catches there. Didn't waste anytime growing out the beard did you? I did the same thing as soon as I hung up my badge and gun belt!

Build is going great, keep it up.

@wwcenturian haha that's the truth!! i'm South Carolina Army National Guard and after a year of shaving in A-Stan I said the heck with it when I got home. so I still have to shave once a month for drill, but those other 29 days it's allllll beard!!

Took my boat out after work today to do some fishing...it's probably about 1/3 complete but I was just dying to get out on the water again. also, I thought it was a great idea after the fact because it gave me a better picture of how I want the completed project to look, rod holder placement, seat mounting, ect. I would recommend anyone in the middle of a build to take their ride out for a day of fishing so that before anything is built permanent you can still tweak a bit.

OH! forgot to mention, I tried out the new Rapala Scatter Rap crank bait today....and buddy!! caught some beauties with that little guy! i'd still have to say that the Alabama rig (umbrella rig) is still my first weapon of choice because it is so versatile in any lake that I frequent, but this rapala pulls a close second after today!

Which color did you use and what was the water visibility? I am thinking about ordering a few of these today. They are expensive but if they are worth it, I don't mind paying for them.

Thanks.

@wwcenturian man I can't remember the exact color scheme name (I threw the box away). but here is a picture of it. yellow belly with orange at the mouth. the water visibility was low when I fished with this lure. I saw the listed price on bass pro, but I got it because it was on sale at BP for fathers day here in Atlanta store.

Thanks, it looks like the Old School or Hot Mustard. The water visibility here is about 10" so I may have to go with something a little more subtle like the Smash or Penguin. Thanks again for the tip.

Finished up my boat this evening. Got the pinion gear for the throttle control on, installed the bus bar, wired in two 50 amp manual reset breakers (one for the main line and the other for the troller) and painted the gunnels. If all goes well with the weather tomorrow I plan on taking her out for our maiden voyage! I will get some pics uploaded on my project page within the next two days.

Make anymore progress on yours?

I can't wait to see the finished result, man it looks great so far!

Haven't had any time these past couple of days to do anything to mine. But I should have all the carpet down by Friday. Will post pics as soon as I get any more work done :)

OH MY GOD!!!! I had no idea how hard carpet was to install!! It took me an hour and a half to lay down just the rear bench... This has got to be by far the most tedious and precise portion of my build so far... Wish me luck gents, I think I've met my match lol

So your having to install the carpet on an already installed floor/deck? Not sure how many people had to do this with their projects. It looks like most people laid the flooring/decking down on top of the carpet, cut, glued, and then stapled like in this example:https://www.tinboats.net/forum/viewtopi ... ll#p309251. The way you are having to do it looks like a lot of work brother.
