That issue w the self draining deck concerns me though. I'm still going to put the 2x6 support for the transom in, but it concerns me that it might have the same issue.
Yes. The 2x6 really threw us for a loop. We did dry fit the sole and the transom brace. It looks like there is just about 2” between the two. This will be enough to drill a few holes through the transom for scupper drains.

Unfortunately our appointment with the trailer and fuel guys was canceled last minute. Should have more info on the fuel tank next week when the fabricator has a look at it.

We’ve been finding it difficult to move around inside the boat so we’ve moved on to fitting the cockpit sole. Took measurements from the centerline and cut to approximately the contour of the side planking. Then we used a compass to scribe the plywood. We are not exactly symmetrical, but we’re probably the only ones who will notice.

Quick update. Cockpit sole dry fit. Much easier to move around now. We’ve also been working on an insulated fish hold below the elevated casting deck. Just waiting in the foam to show up to glue and screw it all together.

Hmmm, I didn't get a notification that you posted.

That looks good. I have similar plans for a insulated fish box under the platform.

Fish hold and anchor locker foamed, glassed, and painted. It was a unique challenge as we aimed to follow the contour of the hull in order to maximize its capacity. The foam worked very well and added rigidity to the entire structure.

Feeling like we're nearing the end of our project. Almost done cutting wood!

Cockpit sole is glassed, just need to slap another coat or two of epoxy on it. Then primer, paint and then time to hang the motor and rig this thing up!

Fish box is really cool. How does it drain? a bilge pump to drain the box?

Thanks! We’re rather happy with the way it turned out. The fish hold drains aft via a PVC pipe. It runs under the fuel tank and dumps out into the bilge.

All faired and on to paint. First coat of primer on interior and side planking.

2nd coat of System Three's Pennant Topside Orcas White applied. Starting to clean up pretty nicely. Going to hit it with a light sand and another coat tomorrow. Dealing with hot temps out here and it's tough to keep a wet edge...

First coat of non-skid applied. I was worried for a while as the interior looked rather messy, but it's beginning to take shape. Can't wait to get hardware on and begin rigging.

Really nice boat you got there! That's going to be a sweet ride. The gray non-skid will be not too hot while keeping down the glare.
