Are you doing the full camo on the inside or just the base layer? I hope my paint job turns out as well as yours! Boat looks awesome.

Probably the full camo, just for extra layers of paint

Been a while since I’ve updated this. Been out on my friends new prodigy boat a few times last week and got me motivated to start working on this again. Sanded down the floor and installed the hydroturf yesterday. Also went to dmv and finally got it registered after owning this for 6 years.

I’m really digging the hydroturf stuff. I’m a fan of the pattern as well. Looks great!

Put the 40hp tiller back on the boat and was able to take it for a ride last week. First ride ever, it felt great. Boat sat nice and level and jumped up on plane really fast, boat ran good and handled very well.

I'll be interested in the build of the blind. I've started on one for my boat. It's a slow process.

That’s quite a hiatus!

Nice build you are doing. I have a Tracker 1754 that I’m just finishing rigging. It’s new, so I didn’t get too crazy.

What is the camo motor cover you have? I’m curious why you took the decals off the Mercif you just put a cover on it? I expected you to paint it to match the hull after stripping them off.
