Willard 730 Project

Starting to rebuild 2 Willard 730's from the ground up. We are going to remove diesels, cut out old deck and counsel and add a hull extension so we can hang twin 175's. Lets see how this goes.

New Transome Box

We have made new transom boxes to replace the full size ones and have built them just large enough to accommodate the fuel filters and the engine cables

How hard would it be to place a console with a head on this one? Would there be enough room below the deck for a step down?

If you want.

You could but you would sacrifice fuel capacity as the tank runs from the back of the console forward, so you would end up with a 60 +- fuel tank.
