I also want to replace the thru hull that's below the waterline for the livewell fill. The fitting that was in before isn't approved for below waterline, so now I have to find a replacement that is........ :x[/quote]

I have the same situation but was gonna just. Leave it is it a big issue to have it below the water line?
My old lady knows I have a one track mind if it ain't about fishing it ain't worth my time.

I'm not sure, but just reading the "not for use below the waterline" warning makes me worry. I already removed the old one because it looked rough, so I need to find a replacement quick.......I'll have to get the fast cure 5200 as well because I can't really wait the 7 days for the 5200 that I already have to fully cure.

Just bought a 1988 Mirocraft deep fisherman with most of the original floor torn out. Is there somewhere to get a template to make a new one or is it trial and error time?

You could try emailing Mirrocraft or get some cardboard and make your own.

Well I think I am getting close to having it out on the water soon......weather pending of course. I leave for my fishing trip next Thursday morning, so the time I have left is quickly running out. :( ....... :) Like I said, I scaled back my plans for now, but will be adding things later during phase 2 of my project. Right now I am waiting on 1 sheet of the marine plywood that I ordered to come in, so I can finish up the rear deck.

Things left:
- replace livewell hose and lid/cover
- finish middle bench lid
- front radio project
- rear deck cut/carpet/install
- run wiring

...so here's where I'm at.....

Oh yeah, forgot to throw up a couple more pics. One is of the front deck "wall".....the outer triangle pieces will be removed for the rod locker access in phase two. Second, is the pic of the stereo mock up I'm planning for now....just a cheap stereo and speakers I had laying around. Lastly, I threw together a new rod rack for the garage. Still planning on adding a couple more.

Thanks! :D

I have a few things left, but I am planning on finishing it up this weekend. I'll probably work on a few things during the summer, but I think I will hold off on the lockers until next winter. I have to put the handle on the rear hatch door, as well as a couple other things, but things are moving along. Here's a progress pic as of yesterday.

Well it's been a while since I updated this thread. I ended up leaving my boat home for my big fishing trip due to my partner having to back out last minute :( ......so finally got back to it to finish up a few things. :D Ran all the wiring, just have to pick up two new battery connectors and bolt down my master power switch. I ended up cutting out a small chunk from the bench to make a spot for the rear battery because I didn't want it in the same compartment as the fuel tanks. It's far from what I consider "completely done", but it will be fully functional at least.

I'll post a few quick pics, but tomorrow I'll take some better ones. I did a quick spray job on the trailer as well and redid the wiring on that too.

Thanks! It's a 14', but it feels bigger though.
