    Default Updated pics on the ROGERS project

    I got the seat brackets aka John D's swim steps for his race boat, back from the polisher and are all arch welded up, and pre drilled, battery just fit between stringer and pump and custom battery box back from polisher, lines and fittings all cut and installed on motor, scoop tray built and installed and test fit the scoop, waiting to get it back from painter, and a small video of new engine being fired for first time next pics will be boat completion..

    You're not going to install those brackets the way they are in this picture are you? Nothing, like the outside edge of an immovable aluminum bracked, should be touching the bottom of the boat. At least it looks like it's touching in the picture. The bottom needs to flex a little. That's a pressure point, if it can't flex, it'll crack.

    Now you have me curious, what's the JB weld for?

    battery box looks good,
    do yourself a favor and put some heat shrink on those battery cables to cover up that bare copper

    I was wondering if that bracket was touching the floor also. If it is touching the floor the outcome will not be good.

    I wouldn't worry about the small amount of bare wire right next to the bare battery post but it will probably look a little better with heat shrink on it, or just cut the insulation a little beter with a razor blade.

    the seat brackets arent mounted in there... there just sitting in place when there mounted there is a gap between the floor and the bracket... and the wiring is not finished yet i have a special coating to go over the terminals.. those were just that way while we fired the motor.

    I would be concerned with the weight pulling on the stringer flexing it side to side. Possibly breaking it loose from the bottom of the boat. They do look nice good thought.
