Nice. Will you glass-in those wooden stringers against the tank? Can't wait to see the finished boat!

There all glassed. Once we reinforce the transom we'll bolt the tank flanges through the stringers then fasten the prefit glassed plywood deck over it and glass it into place.

Were going to drill a hole through the stringer so it can fill from the rail. the plywood was cut to fit last week and we glassed both sides to keep it from warping until the tank showed up.

I'm curious why you added the knees on the transom. I see the notch out, so it doesn't look like a bracket will be added.

I'm selling this as a kit and I believe they have a 150hp to bolt on. The transom is rugged but it's easier to over build it now than repair it later, once the knee's are all fastened and glassed into the bottom, stringers, and transom then glassed again into the deck...she'll stay.

Looks really nice.
Are you still going to build the engine well?
Is the hole in the deck a standard size for a deck hatch?
Does the fuel fill hose get closed in?
Looks too pretty to give to the boys LOL

The hole in the deck was cut for a Bomar 10x12, I'll have to call you on the other two I've got a question on each.
