Close to being done!
Finished up the electrical today; circuit breaker and volt meter box, battery quick disconnects, trolling motor power plug and harness.
Waiting for a metal bracket and wide strap with cam lock to secure the battery box holding a 60+ lb battery!
Need to finish up the EVA foam on the sides of the floor and putting a second coat of paint on the inside gunnels.
Almost ready for a test run!

Battery Box Hold Down Strap and Bracket:
Upgraded from a plastic hold down bracket and buckle strap to metal brackets with nylon strap and metal cam lock for my battery box. Feel better with the metal bracket and cam lock holding down my 70 lb battery!

Hey Crannman -- if you don't mind, what is that box? I would like to enclose my TM circuit breaker in something like that.
