Great to find another 470 owner in the Portland area. I got my F470 and trailer in June, and picked up a 35 hp Evinrude this week. Now just working on outfitting the rest of the boat so I can hit the water soon. I have been in touch with F470, from this forum as well. It would be great to catch up sometime once we are all water ready...

Marine plywood is the plan so far. Hopefully I'll manage after doing all the custom finish carpentry in my house. Or maybe we will just cross our wakes somewhere on the river. Stopped by inflatable boats dealer. They don't have squat for our boat. Wanted $8k for new floor. Couldn't get inflation valves till end of July. (found some on east coast) pricey bastards.
