Great looking boat. That thing will be killer.

I would suggest putting some arc in your roof. It will shed water much better and make the boat look a LOT better.

In addition to Ali's roof suggestion the only thing I would do is build a set of steps and a deck along one side of the boat. I bet you can't count how many times you have gone up and down the ladder.

Your project looks good.

Ok one more suggestion. On the inside of the house be sure to allow for a grab bar on the ceiling down the full length of the house. A trip never goes by that mine isn't used!

All the grab bars and stuff will be the stainless guy. I have to extend the bow rail among numerous other things. Hes building the aluminum gas tank now.
I just cant get with the curved roof. Cant stand the look.

Amazing!!

Oh, and X2 on the roof arch. It's what the pros like Big Bad Bill (Anderson) and Radon use as a standard design element.

Just FYI- my top has 1.5" of arc in the back and tapers down to about .5" in front. It looks flat but that's an optical illusion.

Made a couple of revisions to the hardtop, ordered bait tank today, cut out deck hatches, and doing a ton of under deck detail work plus fairing work. These glass guys are awesome. Carry on.

I like the revision to the front of the hard top.

IMO if you make the top of your front window cutouts strait across rather then angled down toward the center it will look much better.

Just my 02 cents, it sure is looking good. Wish I had some good glass guys that were half way affordable!

Thats what we are doing exactly. If you see previous photos, I had the hard top angling down to a point. At first it looked super bitching, but after awhile it got old and annoying (like women). Anyhow, the new windows will definitely be taller in the center.
