Kicked some ass the past two weekends, today getting a shit ton done before I got hit with the rain tonight. I am pumped now. Can't wait til this is done and I got my feet up on the back of the boat in my pedestal seat with lines out. Can't believe the amount of room I got now. Totally different boat. :)

I will be building storage areas along the sides of the boat with hinged lids.I got the steering console off the factory base and will be mounting it higher on a custom aluminum framed base so the phukin windshield is actually eye level. Once I got all the harness wires and control and steering cables freed I can tell I can coil them up and shorten the distance so I can move that console back a few feet.

I am over the hump and heading towards the custom build phase, damn I am fired up and excited! I have some supplies and materials around the garage to get me started and operational by tomorrow night. The rest I will be able to piece together a little at a time.

Only thing bothering me is I wish I had a smaller fuel tank, this 18 gallon one is too big and over kill. I kick myself in the ass for chucking my 10 gallon one out of the blue NPT boat. I will keep an eye open on a deal on a smaller one on Craigslist. I can raise the current one up on a platform about 3-4 inches, and that will give me 3-4 inches further to the side and still be able to cover it, but it will still will stick out farther than I want it to.

I got the hoses for the future relocated live well plugged and ran under the floor, and marked which bilge bay the ends are in so I can later mount an access door to finish running them to their final destination, which will probably be in front of the console.

Getting rid of these high Bass boat decks is really making me happy. Finally removed the last of the center foam, again, it was all water logged and I believe the boat lost about another hundred to 150 lbs. And now the water can FINALLY DRAIN TO THE BACK, WOO-HOO!!!.

Looking good Hoss, and your boat will finally drain right. I'll bet you pick up a little speed too with that extra weight out.
