The original tank was 80 gallons. We shaved the sides off a little to slide it forward. Might be in the 75 range now.

The beam of the stern is exactly 96". Makes sense, because it's made of marine plywood. It gets about 102" a little past midship. Never measured the dead rise or weight.

Cool man. I will bet it's 24* deadrise just from the pictures. She looks to have a very sharp entry. That will be nice especially with that chine and flare to knock spray down. I bet that boat performs real good. Definitely built for the NC water.

Looks like about 8* at the stern.

I don't know how many of those are around but I passed a bc cc today heading east on 40 near garner. Looked like yours. Looked 23'-25' with twin four stroke zukes on the transome

Here is a picture with the bilge finished out with paint, fuel tank, and rigging tube. The bilge has one layer of fiberglass. We then sanded it and epoxy coated twice. We put white pigment in the epoxy to give it a nice finish.

After we coated the bilge we cut out the floor. We used 1/2" marine grade plywood. We temporarily screwed the floor down with washers while the epoxy to the stringers dried. After that, we countersunk every hole and came back with stainless flat-head screws. Those holes were then epoxied over to give a smooth finish.

Yea man no doubt about that, it just looked like yours did in the first pictures you posted. I have only seen a handful of those bc center console boats under 25' and I thought it was funny to see one about the time you started posting on this again. Beautiful boats. Looks like y'all are getting on it pretty good, keep the updates coming!

Trying to keep these photos coming, but I keep getting distracted...

Next we laid a layer of fiberglass to the deck and installed scuppers. Before the boat wasn't set up to be self-bailing. This was a new addition.

We then framed up the new bulkhead and cut out the holes for the tackle storage. Only the starboard sides are actually storage. On the port side we ran the fish box all the way to the floor. The port side box stops right above the storage which will be used for drinks / snacks.

From there we added the console. The T Top was built by accident a couple months before I bought the boat. I didn't yet have a console for it, so I bought a console that the T Top was designed for. It was built for a 210 Tidewater. We build the tops for our local dealer, Marker 17, so they hooked us up.

Instead of just screwing it to the floor, I came over top of the screws with fiberglass to give it a nice finish.

Around this point I was starting to prep everything for paint. When removing the cleats in the bow, I found a good amount of rot. Rather than painting over, I decided to go ahead and cut it out to repair.

I had some pieces of marine grade plywood left over, so I cut them to fit. I then glued everything down and came over with a layer of fiberglass. That section was then blended in and primed for paint.

I also found a little spot on the bottom that needed some more glass. Sanded it down and put on a new layer.

After all of the hardware was removed, we went ahead and put on a coat of epoxy primer.

While the primer was drying, I climbed underneath the boat and put on a fresh coat of bottom paint. In one of the photos you can see the keel that was added to keep the stern straight in turns.

Stuart- I enjoyed talking with you and getting to see the boat up close on Saturday at DRI. Even with the hurdle, you turned out an awesome rig in short order. Great story too. Enjoy it. See you on the water.

Here's a photo of the bottom side of the fish box lids. Insulated them with a few layers of 1/2". The 150 Yamaha was hung as well.

Here are some photos after the primer was sanded with 220. Drilled out the holes for the rod holders and cup holders. The top of the gunnels and inside of the gunnels were sanded down for a fresh coat as well.

Here are some photos of the first top coat that was added. Went to the original color of "cloud white".
