Very impressive so far!
Looks like those mats could hold a lot of water - much the same way as a sponge - so I wouldn't want to use it.
May be better with something like one of the ribbed mats like in this link & replace as it wears: Woolies Trim - Rubber Matting

Yes that is my concern too. However those are structurally somewhat open and water should be able to seep through. But I'm sure that some amount of water would be trapped. Is it a concern I'm not sure.

Impressive work as also plenty of it Let the pictures come! Do you have a indoor working space as the winter starts to kick in very soon? p

Yes I have a garage but this boat won't fit in I'm going to pause this project for the winter anyways. All the critical repairs are done and now it's just putting pieces together. But if I stumble upon a good engine this project might still see water in this season.

I use the ribbed type mat in my dory, cut to shape as required - used it in previous boats too, never glued it in so easy to rinse over the side, not had problems with slipping on the grp floor - & see a lot of heavy duty stuff in commercial fishing boats

Found one possibility for the engine. 2008 Mercury Optimax 225. Those are auctioned off from the same source I got the boat originally. Run for about 1300 hours but since these are from the government I'm not too scared of higher hour count. No cables, meters or steering.. So If I were to bid to the end I would need to source these also. The weight is only about 30kg more than 150 hp. Opti.

22 days left.. going for the highest bidder.

How about 2 x 75 Yamahas (2 stroke), that would be a nice combo.....Not that heavy either?

Really difficult to find a nice matching pair. And I think that one engine would be easier and cheaper to maintain. Also looking for some economy in gas consumption.

Anyways here is a little update on console. I plugged all of the old holes and painted the whole thing. Looks a bit tidier now. Going to put on 2x3 set of carling switches and instrumentation for whatever the engine will be.

Just some better pictures of the new floor and a powder coated seat frame. The anti-skid will probably be some kind of black rubberized coating like Line-X or Tuffcoat. And I'm going to cut a bigger section of that rubber flooring to the aft that I can just lift off and clean when dirty. Need something tougher that can take the beating from anchor etc.
