Progress

Cripes, that's amazing progress. I have gone for a double 2" A frame as well, although mine mounts to the front of the stern boxes and the rear, stern side of the transom. I think that you might beat me to the water.
Good luck.

A nice little project Don't underestimate the drilling, screwing, gluing, wiring and fixing required to finish her off. Worth it for the fantastic sense of achievement when it's launched and all works how it should.

With the engine rigged and steering fitted, mine took 3.5 days. 5 days straight should nail it.

Got a fair amount done today....

All the hinges and catches done
Steering, throttle and guages fitted
Steering cylinder done control cables and hydraulic hoses are in as well.

It's so much nice working on a new boat than an old one!
