Oh, and transom marked out ready for engine bolts. haven't had the courage to dril the holes yet. Might wait until the thing arrives and make sure they haven't changed the mounting holes from what the instruction manual says.

I'm sure you've done your homework but that does sound rather a lot. Did that info come from Osprey?

So it's all comming together then. Looks great!

Shame you couldn't have mailed me about the latches I used, they are a Plastimo part number and cost 25 each, I however found a supply at a local Barge of bits and paid a 5er each. They're lockable too. The hinges cost about 15 each however.

What's the piece of wood bracing for under the console?

1.5" for a 200 will be fine, mine was offset by 1.25"

It's coming on.

Looking good! Are you getting just a little excited?
Mine hasn't seen the water yet, but the offset is the same 1.5" as directed by Osprey.
Hope the build continues going well.

They're very similar to the Plastimno ones, but these are compression locks rather than latches. They should be more resilient and weren't so critical on the door lining up perfectly with the frame.

The wood bracing? I assume you mean the plywood mounting plates. I had them glassed in by Malcolm Windsor so that I had somewhere to mount things onto.

Ah yes compression locks, very much more adjustable for installation. I guess I was lucky with mine as I was able to buy a couple and return them if they didn't fit. They fitted straight in with no adjustment nessesary, I did however dispatch with the plastic dishes used to secure the locks in place as these where a terrible design and not very secure.

I see what you meen about the plywood mountings. I indeed had some glassed into mine, not quite as extensivly as yours though. Looking good however.
