Awesome work!

Question for you: In between the coats of topside paint, did you you sand?

I did.... at first. I got some 2000 grit sandpaper and tried to take care of places where the paint ran, but I'm guessing I didn't do it right, because the runs were still there. Anyhow, I just ended up painting the second and third (touch up) coats on without sanding
Living proof that anyone can, if they just try.

I have done everything now except putting my registration letters and boat name on (waiting for them to be done still). I also need to attach my transducer and clean up just a little bit of my wiring, but that's it! Here's the pics of the completed rear deck (I finished up the plumbing for the livewell drain, but haven't taken pics of it yet). I'm hoping to take video and pics of it in the water within the next few days, weather permitting.

These .88 roller catches from Wal-Mart work wonderfully. They hold the hatches closed well, and are easy to open

looks good man... I like how you did that storage area... I'm thinking of figuring something out like that with the livewell, but I think I need a deeper and wider boat first before I do anything

I took it out on the water today, and other than having to permanently mount my transducer, everything worked out great! I took the whole family out (wife and 3 kids), and we enjoyed ourselves!

BP,

In the pic of the livewell emptying out, it looks like the boat is not sitting on the bunk? I looks as though I can see your glides. Is that right?

Yes, it was off the bunk, I had just pulled it out of the water, and we had to right it, but I hadn't got it on straight when I took the pic. However, once on, it does stay! and the boat doesn't ride that way normally. Yes, it is a REALLY good feeling to be done! I dont' know why, but looking at it, I feel like I don't know what took me so long to get it done. I know the Devil is in the details though :wink: . I'm hoping to take it out fishing on Saturday for a little bit, and if all works out, my fishing buddy and I will load up the livewell with fish on Monday!!

BP, that is awesome looking. I know what you mean about looking at it and wondering what took so long. Take a picture for us when you catch the first one in it this weekend.
