New to the forum and must say, this is great! This is really my fathers boat and his project. I'm just learning and getting help on here for him.

The plan is to power with twin 2007 Merc Opti 90's. The hull has a been re-awlgriped fleet white with moon dust anti-skid. The fuel coffin was cut out and has a new 120 gal tank. . Any and all other advice is welcome. Can't wait to splash her!

That's impressive! The OEM tank was 51 gallons. Whoever did the tank replacement also did alot of fiberglass work expanding the coffin and fabricating a new coffin lid...and they awlgrip'd the hull . Nice people!

Now...some PICS.

Here are some new pics.

This is the console upside down with some cheep insulating foam around the cooler.



And another angle



The naked console ready for paint.



Sorry for the double post but these are also on ScottC's thread. I just can't get over his craftsmanship.



Switches



The nameplates really work



The plan now is black for the bottom paint and Yellow t-top canvas. There are still some more sweet orders from ScottC. The boat will head to Warthog's in a month for wiring.





Any and all comments are welcomed!

Looks great!

I would have chosen a different location for your fuel gauge though. Unless you just have the keys (no extra keys or key floats) in those ignition switches, it won't be long until gauge lens is all scratched up from things rubbing on it.

Yeah I thought about that once I put the panel in. I'm thinking just a single key in the ignition with a foam float key chain attached.

Are you planning to trailer or keep in the water? We can't see the bottom, but just curious about the bottom paint. The black bottom paint is one the the main things I can't wait to get rid of on mine - it does stay on trailer.

The bottom paint was blue and has suffered from years of neglect. We thought black would really look good since there is a lot of other black on the boat. No, she will not be on a trailer. The boat will be based at at Holiday Marine in Perdido Key on stack storage in a warehouse. He says he's too old to deal with a trailer. He wants to make a phone call and turn the key. What do you not like about your black bottom?

It's not the color, it's the paint. I have ablative bottom paint on a boat that doesn't sit in the water. It can't be cleaned and if you touch or rub against it comes off on you. I plan to remove and paint with different type paint and will go with light color, probably white, because imperfections will show less and every nick, scratch, and beach won't show up.

Great looking panels...Scott always makes beautiful things. No matter how simple the panel, they always look so good and set things off just right.

If the boat is going to be stored, why bother with bottom paint?

Viking66,
There is existing bottom paint on the boat. Dad really wants to redo it. I'm headed down next weekend and will update some pics. There is a new t-top, bow rail, and lean post all being installed this week. Then she is off to Warthogs for rigging. I'll have fresh pics in a week!

Here are some great new pics of our new power and console (THANKS WART). As of now, we have new metal (bow rail, t-top, and lean-post) thanks to Breeze Fabricators. Pics of that will be posted soon.

Front view. Recognize that truck??



Finally out of the crate!



Micky (our engine guy) did a perfect job on the install



Console in and ready for Wart's magic. Thanks SCOTT C for the sweet work!

It will be a Happy Halloween for the project today. Rumor has it that the boat will be picked up from Breeze Fabricators and arrive at the pearly gates of St. Warts. The moment I get pics I will post.

ChuckB
About the discussion of bottom paint...... That idea has been scratched and the bottom will be sanded down and will remain clean (fleet white). The t-top is black canvas and there will be a black boot strap along with a unique graphic name & shark on the sides. I guess Wart has had some influence on the colors?!?!?!?

I agree. It would have been better to have the gage where the key switches are and the key switches where the fuel gage is.

Looks like a bust today. No one seems to want to return a phone call to see if it's ready to be picked up.

Also wanted to pull some waypoints out of a Garmin unit on a boat that is being sold and leave the area. Same deal. No return call.


On a good note yesterday was a Birthday and Anniversary in my family.

Dad turned 78 and in good health and Mom went into the Hospital a year ago yesterday for cancer. All is good.

Wart,
Since my e-mail is acting up....I figured I'd update you here. I just called Breeze. Just got a guys cell voice mail. I talked to Dad and both you and he have better patience than I do. After 14 years of working on this, you'd think that I would have chilled out by now......

That is 3/8'' starboard. My Dad got a huge sheet and cut the center out of it to fit. If you were to get intouch with ScottC, he can cut you some nice pieces. We would have used him until we got this sheet so we tried to make it work. Dad did a nice job cutting it. If there is any teak that should be replaced with starboad on any Mako should be the console trim.

Just make sure you check the work before you leave....especially the position of any rod holders. I had one that was put on that rotated outboard about 25 degrees. When you put a rod in the holder, the reel was against the rod in the holder next to it. I've seen them do some good work, but I wasn't greatly pleased with mine.

Sailor,
When the boat finally got to Warts, he looked over it with a fine tooth comb. I think it was sent back to the shop. After that, things were perfect. As soon as I get some pics, I'll post em.

Is the bow rail 1" or 1.25" pipe? It sure looks strong.

The boat is going to be a head turner, keep it up.

The rail is 1 1/4in. I speced it so that it was NOT mounted on the toerail like the factory rails are.

The toerail is a weaker area and a bump at the dock usually gets you spidercracks radiating from the upright stantions.

The 1 1/4in fits your hand MUCH better than 3/4in. It's much stronger too.
