Got some more bits today either delivered or back from the fabricators.
Light pole and modded outboard bracket fitted tonight although the anchor light still needs to be fitted on the pole between the aerials.
Towing eyes now on the transom. Now just waiting for the two core cable to turn up to run all cables back into the console and start connecting everything up.
Got my seat bases today as well from Rickuk, just need to get them fixed down and I can start looking at Treadmaster to get the deck covered although I can't decide yet whether to use the new thinner stuff rather than the diamond pattern.

Why did you fit the U bolts and transducer cable entry so low on the transom?

On your DeGraaff, at the base of the swing beams (at the V) have you any drainage holes? On mine there isn't, so salt water gets trapped inside the box section.

They look in the pic a lot lower than they actually are. I think the pic angle and the fact that it is an XL transom exaggerate the effect.

Mine has none there either, just holes in the end. I may drill a hole in the middle through the reinforcing plate before using it in anger.

Got the lightpole wired up completely last night and the hatches cut in the seat bases tonight. Hopefully will get some dry weather tomorrow to fit them in to the hull.
Will need to buy another set of 33C's though. I slightly miscalculated the length and can't lose the spare easily so am going to buy a shorter set and flog the other set of supremes on fleabay.
So watch out for a new pair of 5.0m teleflex supremes about to be listed.........
I'll need to start looking for batteries soon as by next week I will be connecting everything inside the console and will be looking to fire her up if I'm lucky.......
I need two 100ah batteries so any suggestions on somewhere cheap to buy them would be appreciated, will probably need to be posted as well at horrendous cost

Nice weather tonight so light pole finished off with flag and anchor light and cabling all ran back to the console and the seat bases fixed in.
Now I need to sort and connect this lot in the console, lots of fun times ahead
Will need to decide on flooring as I specified a smooth floor to allow for it, not sure what to fit yet.
