Picked the hull up last summer and had R&D Marine do the bottom work to it and build the pump. I have made all the seat brackets, gas tank brackets, rail kit and motor plates for it. I even made my own stainless steel carb scoop and tray! Harold @ R&D Marine is Starting to put together my BBC 540 motor this week! Its almost done, just need to wire and plumb the boat and drop the motor in and get it wet! Here are a few pics. What do you guys think?

I'm there just about every weekend from May thru October.

Sounds like I'll be able to see the boat in person come Father's Day:D

The scoop is made of Stainless steel and polished. The coating on the floor is Zoletone (sp) that you get from the auto paint store. Its sprayed on with a paint gun.

This is the only other pic ot the rail kit I have

Great loookin Boat!! I would thins about rounding out the notch in the stringer just in front of the rail kit. Square cuts are the first place a crack could develop.
