Thanks!

Yes, the grey/white combo has already paid off as far as cooling the boat down. It looks pretty clean too. If I don’t say so myself!

It’s so nice to be nearing the end of this project. I have thoroughly enjoyed it, but I also just want to get out and enjoy the boat.

Also, on a recent river trip on my brother-in-law’s boat my wife announced that she’s not mad at me for building a boat anymore! It’s amazing how everyone’s attitude towards this project changes when they see the light agh the end of the tunnel.

Thanks all for the kind words! Tons of work accomplished and seemingly even more ahead of us. Began wiring and installed the T-top today. Starting to resemble a real fishing boat...

Very nice
Thanks! The T-top is from Stryker. They are a local Southern California company.

Anybody out there who may have some advice for wiring this thing up? I’m all ears.

Yes. Wiring up the entire boat. We ordered plans, but its a bit overwhelming right now. Anybody else do it all themselves? Or are we the only ones?

I did mine all myself, no wire diagrams.
I wish I had written it all down.
