  1. A lot of time is spent thinking, but I think it is time well spent.
  2. Better weather is just around the corner. Enjoy your boat. Looks great! I know you will be pleased with her performance. Well done.
  3. I may not understand your question. I used solid stock for the stringers and just beveled them with a plane in the areas that required it.
  4. Here's a link to a video:
  5. Underway photos. Can't say enough good things about this boat. Here are some pics from todays river cruise. The photos of the boat at speed are 35 knots. Grahams design really turns heads. While getting the trailer inspected at Monro muffler, all the mechanics came out and walked around the boat wanting to know where I bought it. While trailering, people are honking and giving the thumbs up. Where I stop for fuel, people invariably walk around the boat and just look at her. Performance is just as good as her looks. I get a thrill evey time I run her.
  6. Haven't posted in a while. Still keeping up with your build. Nice console, I like the foot rest. Should have done something similar on mine. She is looking good. Dave
  7. Very nice. I like your foot space at the bottom of the console. I noticed fishman also made a step at the bottom of his console. Although different from yours, still a place for your feet. I now wish I had done something similar. Leaning post placement is critical for a comfortable fit. Mine is just square at the bottom and although it works, its just not quite right while standing and leaning against the seat. Your boat is going to be a nice rig.
  8. I remember this all to well. Looking nice and clean Adios. Just make sure your getting a nice consistency with the epoxy and not getting any voids. Looking really good.

    Congrats on the turnover Russell, a milestone in the build.

    I made the holes for the wiring chase pipe just a little over size. Braced my pipe as best I could so a very slight gap was around the pipe and filled the gap with 5200 and used enough to make a nice fillet around the pipe on both sides of the bulkheads and decks. I wanted the joints to be flexible. That was my thought anyhow. Seemed to work well and time will tell the tale.
  11. Good to see some progress photos. Press forward. I expect to see a spring launching.
  12. Actually I've had the GPS effect the compass quite a lot as well. Usually the compass or device manufacturer will have a compass safe distance in their instruction sheet. You must put the compass where you want it to go with no devices or metal objects any where close to it. Then you can observe the compass dial while moving each device slowly to the position you would like it in. If the dial compass dial moves even slightly you are to close with that device. Usually 2 - 3 feet for a radio with a speaker in it. In some cases you can get closer. I personally like no deviation in the compass to start with. Another big compass deflector is an EPIRB. 4 feet can be to close.
  13. Super clean. Looks great. Is your radio to close to your compass?
