after paint things tend to go a little quicker just turns into a 1000 little jobs at that point.

Little more progress I have made a small console for the switch panel and sounder,
also I have finished the tank just have to mount it in and run some lines, happy days.

    Hi Dave,

       Yes I did TIG weld it, the console, tank and Bow mount bracket, I'm not a welder
    as such, self taught on the TIG, with each thing I do I get a little better.

    Thanks

    Jason

    mounting points for the tank welded ready to bolt in place.

    looks like a nice little unit. did you weld it to the side of the hull or just to the strut?

    Well the project has slowed a bit of late due to time and money,
    how ever I have managed to get a little more done on it, I have
    made some grab rails up and fitted them to the boat now.

    I have attached a photo, I did however make a bit of a boo boo,
    I was trying to keep the rails low as that is the look I like but did
    not think it through 100% of the way as now I can't fit the LED
    navlights I had under the rails, so I have had to get some horizontal
    mount lights for it instead, that was the cheapest and easiest way
    around my speed bump.  :-[.

    I did how ever see that one boating store had marine carpet on sale
    so I did get some for it, now I just need the flooring.

    Cheers Jason
