I've left several dive flags somewhere out along the highway. Best I've found (other than finding an enclosed space to stow the flag) is to toss your weightbelt/pouches on the flag while trailering.

Probably wouldn't have helped your antenna.

Make sure you drill some small holes in the bottom corners of the seat box. Otherwise, any water that gets in stays in. Not sure if you want to do that on the fuel side (but you should have some manner of getting spilled fuel cleaned up.)

Have a couple of holes on the bottom on both ends to let water and gas vapor in and out. I could run a transom plug in them if needed to keep water out and fuel in. But would prefer to leave them unplugged.

will def. place some weight on them next time lol, pan on tieing off the antenna to the center console to keep it from whipping around next time. Oh and no dive flags tied to the antenna to help break it.

a few pics of the A frame, only took a lil bit to bend it up. Will add a spot down the road for the all around light once I figure out which one I am going to run.

Looking great! Definitely DO NOT plug those holes at the bottom of the frame for the seat. It is very important that any water or fuel that spills on the floor within that box will immediately drain out of the boxed in area and onto the open deck.

yeh not going to plug them now, I have the control cables running alll the way through the one side. Its a good spot to keep them from underfoot.

about $5500 US or 3900 GBP. Not a whole lot more to go, going to build a back seat rest and intsall a access hatch into the front of the center console, with the seat installed it does not leave much room to access the console from the rear lol.
