I really need to figure out how to do the flush hatches. Wood, aluminum, whatever, my front deck needs to be redone. I know there are plenty of resources out there. Plywood on the other hand isn't exactly budget friendly these days

Well no 1/2" shank bits and no collet reducer's either. So......... :cry: Got two of the forward deck panels resin coated and most of the wiring harness laid out. Ordered the Staples. As well as the boot and drain tube for the splash well.

I had ordered a new splash well boot, I think it was Sea Dog brand a few months ago, and after 2 months of not shipping I finally got it canceled. I guess they just weren't getting anymore of those in, probably made overseas...

Went to Texarkana yesterday after work. Got a pair of nice seats, a pair of bases, a gallon of glue for the vinyl, and a few other things.

For those doing vinyl, I can say that regular carpet glue will eventually work if you have weeks for it to dry. Yes I said weeks. The vinyl locks in the moisture. So I found an upholstery shop willing to sell me a gallon of landau top glue. Ist a high temp contact adhesive. Seen where it's used in auto upholstery so should be just the ticket. We shall see today. If I can find a roller. Grrrr.

Got a bunch of sanding done in preparation for resin. Got the switches installed. Not entirely straight but it is going to be ok. My OCD will subside eventually. I need better metal working tools. Oh well add those to the new list. Also got new seats.

Looks like if nothing else I will get to support my addiction to building these things by doing it for others. The landlord asked me why I'm NOT doing this for a living and has been advertising me lol. So now I have people calling and at least asking me what I charge. 🤣

Last needed part I ordered is at the post office. The one I drove past on my way home to find out it's there not here. 🤣 So I'm off to the post office I guess. Oh well I can go to the dump while I'm out.

Thought I could sneak the steering cable in with the outboard mounted. I was wrong. 🙄 So I get to remove it again. 🤣
