Are you planning on putting any thing on the floor to prevent slipping? New alloy, blood and water sounds very slippery to me.

Are you going to go HDS again?

    Lookin good Dave.
    Excellent choice ,they are a tough boat.
    Any outside pics of the whole hull ?
    I'm liking the ideas so far.
    Boney

    Photo is  the prototype when they were developing the hull - almost identical to mine - except MINE WILL HAVE A 60HP HONDA on it.

    The hull was rated to 40HP.
    I had them build mine out of 4mm plate and modified the transom so I could run a 60HP motor.
    The sponsons are foam lined which I think Stabi's need to quiet them down.

    Very nice, will be happy to watch this progress!

    Just with your all round white, if you mount in on the console it could be a pain when under way at night as it will shine in your eyes - you probably already have a solution to that though!  ;D

    Also with your tackle storage, I reckon what Boney has done on his big rig having it under the bait board is a great idea, makes a good usable utility area - that's if you don't put the live tank there.

    Best of luck with the project, I'll be watching in anticipation and envy. LOL

    Yes it is a dilemma - I'm going to see what it looks like on the console - if it is in my vision.
    I'm hoping to get it high enough that it isn't.
    I really don't want a pole t fish around at night which I would have if I mount it anywhere else.
    I'm not keen on removable - the connector always plays up and you hve to have somewhere to store it - always in the road.

    Not sure on the floor - removable carpet is the current thought - few press studs to keep it in place.
    Not sure on electronics yet - HDS stuff is good.

    Just like to clarify a point and answer the smartarse anonymous emails.
    The boat is not sponsored. I bought the boat outright, I didn't receive any discount whatsoever from Stabicraft.
    I paid extra for the 4mm hull, lined sponsons and the modified transom - which was at my request, the way I wanted it.

    Nugget,

    With your anchor light, you could put a round plate at the base of the round light it self creating a flange say 10 15 mm wide which could assist your vision at night and you still get the all round light visible as required ?

    Nugget,

    Sad to hear that there are selfish and vindictive people out there who are apparantly very jealous of your new pride and joy.

    I think it's a great project no matter what.

    LOL, just beat me to it!  ;D

    The other option could be a custom telescopic style, lift when underway and then down again for day/trailer travel.

    That idea has merit

    Just one further quick note, I'm sure Ron has probably used C channel before for trailers, but it is prone to axial forces and torsion issues.  Just make sure it's adequately braced, especially since it's going to receive some rough terrain treatment...

    He's built everything from road trains to box trailers.
    His mobile cold rooms are being towed to the Cape and back regularly.
    I don't think I'd be game to offer any advice.
    I might end up with a C channel dump valve.

    I've had a few PM questions about what dual battery system I'm going to put in it.
    I've been giving this a lot of thought - I think the answer is none!
    These days with LED lighting we are using a lot less battery power than in the past.
    Batteries are a lot better these days - I think one decent battery will start the motor and run lights etc all night with ease.
    The main power drain are pumps - live bait and deck wash.
    I'm going to calculate power drain and work out if I need dual batteries but I would prefer not too - a lot simpler / less things to stuff up.

    Your thoughts?

    Re the all round white light: On the console will stuff your night vision no matter what you do but is the best spot for it to be seen by other boats. I have an open boat a bit bigger and went with a LED all round white pole light from RFD and mounted it on the transom. You could get an extra base and mount it up the front when you are fishing from the stern. That's what I plan to do when I get around to it. Probably not 100% legal though but an idea.

    Re dual batteries: I have two Full River HC 20 sealed batteries in my boat with a dual battery switch. I like the safety of having another fully charged battery to get me started if I drain the other one which has happened. You could probably fit two in a normal sized battery box and hide most of the cables in there and maybe even mount the battery switch on the side of the box.
