Average pics of the progress. We are a bit further along, and actually gelcoating the inside of the hatches, fishholds and cabin v berth. Took a break to hit Guns n Roses, waited my whole life and it was well worth it. Field Row 6.
Windows are ordered, 65 gal bait tank comes next week, seats are ordered, and motor bracket order is submitted. Im broke. B.O.A.T. for sure.

Great progress on the project man, it'll all be worth with the first trip out.

Had to bust out a remodel and get a house in Jamul sold. 24 hours on the market, sold for 15 grand over ask. I have 2 more coming, one in San Carlos and one in Rancho San Diego if anybody is looking.
Moving on, seats came today, gas tank is mocked up and dri fit, windows ordered, and bait tank should have come but hasnt. Moving along with fairing, sanding, and cabin gel coat. Ordered some color samples last week. Not looking to build a show boat, so color schemes will not get a ton of time, attention or money invested. I would paint the whole thing white and be done, wife is convincing me to sexy her up a bit. Probably going to end up selling the trailer and buying a brand new one as well if there is any interest.

Getting our paint on. All gelcoat, no Awlgrip or whatever. I just want to give my main man Alphonso a huge bit of respect, he took the citizenship test last week, and Monday was sworn in as a true American citizen. Congrats my man, great job on the TunaTicklerXL. Any of you guys looking for glass work, hit me up, I will pass Alphonso's number on. Dude is legit.

King! Hahahaha. My boat is in oceanside getting my wires ran and bait tank installed to!

Dude stop trying to hi-jack this guys thread. I've tried following yours but its just a bunch of part buying BS. I can relate on the Gregor project but this is on a slightly different level.

And your a fisherman......
Won't deny that I am a fisherman, not sure what you're insinuating though?

Not saying I dislike you, just saying that the details of your build or questions about your build, unless directly related, should be kept in your thread, that's all.

Okay, I won't derail this.
