Sadly no, I bought a Camaro in July and that has gotten the majority of my attention the last 6 months or so. It takes time, money, and willpower to do one of these projects and I never seem to have all three at the same time.

I haven't done much work to my scarab since the last updat but am planning to get back started on it as it warms up. I had planned on using coosa for the stringers and bulkheads but am wondering if there is a better more cost efficient material? I haven't ruled out marine ply but would like to avoid it if possible.

Okay guys, I have had some health issues the last several months that have not allowed me to physically work on the boat. I have been working on getting my plan together as time allows. My question right now is, how wide should a console be? The console that I bought for this project is an old WorldCat console. It is 40" wide and I am pretty sure I am going to have to cut it down as the boat only has an 8' beam. I am thinking of cutting it down to 30-32". This should still allow me to mount (2) 12" screens if I choose to.

Thoughts?

It should be wide enough to keep the weather off of you and not so wide that you have to turn sideways to get by it. i like a wide console when it's raining.

My thoughts,

Hope you are doing better. Builds like this make me anxious. I know I do not have the time or skill to do this much work to a boat.

As I am getting my NTM boat ready for a engine I can feel a few soft spots on the deck and I wonder.

I was looking at the top of my tank last night thinking there is no way to get that thing out. I do not smell any gas and I pray it stays that way!

I was told the boat you boat had some issues.

This scarab looks awesome! I hope you can finish it!
