what do you want to put in te baitwell? the kind of baitfish is going to play THE role in how big you want the tank to be

When i was in Galilee, Rhode Island most of the lobster boats had tanks built into/under the gunnels some had them down both sides, looked like a nice way to use up the space. Only thing that bothered me was you lose the toe kick under the gunnel with them so you can't get your feet under the gunnel and it feels like you will fall out of the boat easier.

John, glass in a oval livewell into the transom like you see on the Carolina boats, pretty sweet deal. I had one on the HH40 that had a nice indent for your feet as well, its glass do wonders with that time off!

Sad to think that my best bluefin years were nearly 10 years ago this year...

I built one into my transom when I built her but I didn't leave room for your toes ...big mistake ..very uncomfortable...so if you do it make sure you put that in
