    Sitting in the morning sun! Actually, I'm using the sun, to help cure some resin "peanut butter" that I put in the flooring corners.
    Also, I was itching to see what it would look like with the jackplate on it. I kinda messed up there also. I oversized the holes for the transom, filled with resin, to drill the proper size. That way if you have a leak, it won't sleep into the wood. I didn't drill the proper size before painting! Murphy was with me, those where the only spots that I sanded halfway decent!! Couldn't find them after painting. Had to drill some from the inside, then make a template to drill the rest. Fun times !!!

    Nav lights, red deck lights, white deck lights, white compartment lights. It's getting there, slowly but surely.

    I have an LED cube, I want to mount, for a "headlight". Should I mount it,
    A - on the side of the trolling motor mount
    B - on bow, besides the trolling motor
    C - on the console

    That jackplate looks familiar.
    The boat is looking good.

    Yes sir!
    Thank you.
    I attempted to hook up the steering cable tonight, in hindsight, should've done that before mounting the engine to the jackplate. Not enough play in the cable. Oh well, lesson learned. Ill get it dismounted, hooked up, remounted.

    Boat update - 400' of 14 gauge wire (200' of red, 200' of black) is now hooked up in the boat. Just promise not to cringe if I post a picture of some of it, I'm not good with making wiring look pretty!! Both the positive and negative wires, are labeled at the buss bars and switches/breakers. 5 switches, with resettable breakers by them.
    Trolling motor - 16' of 2 gauge, about 6' of 1 gauge wire, three 27 series batteries, one 3 bank charger installed for the trolling motor batteries. Led cube mounted on trolling motor for a headlight.
    Roughly 40' of 18 gauge wire, for some of the LEDs.
    Engine trim switches, fore and aft, in addition to the existing one on throttle lever. Three 12 volt outlets, one in the bow, two in cockpit area, one dual USB charging port.
    Two buss bars, one negative one positive.
    Two auto bilge pumps, have some work left for them.
    New 1.5" fuel fill line (that stuff was expensive!) And a new fuel sending unit.
    Couple more scratches!!
    Tachometer, fuel, and water pressure gauges new and installed. I'm hoping they work!
    Need to install rubrail, registration#'s, some cleats, make lids for new storage lockers, then pray the engine still runs, then pray harder that the boat doesn't leak!!
    And a day to put tools up ! ! !
