Look great. Compact and will fit in that space well. How will you thru-bolt it?

You could sell one - I bet you know how to make another. I have a feeling the wife won't go for that though.

Leaning post looks great!

Wish I could figure out a solution for that while keeping rear storage box.

Who knows, maybe after the first fishing trip I'll be pissed off at the box. Right now I like the storage, there isn't much else to replace it.

Check out the soft coolers from nrs.com. Really nice options and not too $$$.

The leaning post is from Mark at Florida Suncoast Marine It was very affordable even shipped to CA and I have a little extra in custom height. His work is clean and sharp. It's just brushed finish metal and not a bright finish.

I have all the storage space where the diesel used to be. I put the electrical in there in there and I can sit comfortably on a bucket and work on it. I think I'm going to put a tank rack down there....

Yeah I've enjoyed how easy it is to wire when the engine is out of that space. Oh well, new engine going back in. There are pluses and minuses to inboard vs outboard. Fun that we can explore both on this forum.

I think I might be done with major construction. Just a little kiwigrip repair and 10,000 other little things I am sure.

I had some leftover AL angle that I used for a backing plate under the deck

Wow look at all that deck space and the leaning post. Tubes on and she'll feel like a boat again.

I kind of want to have a t-top built before I put the tubes on. In just short (out) of cash. Not sure how that plan will play out.

I also need to try the internal sealant on the tubes.

Just get on the water. Easily added later.

I have a gallon of the internal sealant. It looks a lot like the sealant I use in my tubeless mountain bike tires.
