Great job! the boat looks great, I'm jealous... As happy as I am with my boat, I'd love to find the time to spruce it up like that. It's sitting in a garage in FL until I get to use it again the end of March.
I'm pretty torn as to whether or not to bother with the splashwell. I put in an auto electric bilge pump, and that handled the issue adequately. I do need to find a decent weatherproof switch for the pump though. The el cheapo West Marine one crapped out in <2 weeks of exposure. Ah well, it was worth trying...
I'm not sure I really want that big ol chunk of fiberglass taking up space in the back of the RIB. Right now I'm leaning against it. Don't wait on me to put it back in the boat, if I take too long and miss the opportunity, that'll make my decision for me. That being said, when do you think you may be putting it back on the boat? For the cost of a quart of polyester resin and a couple of yards of glass, it's probably worth doing. Maybe the weekend of March 3-4? Should only take 1/2 hour or so to lay up, but will take 4 hours to cure.
