Oh man sorry to hear about the Viking. Well hope the Albemarle treated you good. She was a good little boat.

Went to look at a buddy's contender this morning, he sold me on the flat floor all the way to the bow. Did a little trimming, got some grinding to do next. I think I have enough 1" nidacore to build the front out. Probably use some 2 or 3 inch foam for the insulated box. Thinking of a rectangular Armstrong hatch with a maceration at the back of the fish box.

Theres going to be plenty of room up there

Just came across this thread. I recently purchased a proline 3400 repainted and repowered it with 275 Verado’s still trying to work out a few issues mostly with engine height and center spacing. I think my transom was re drilled my centers are 32” any chance you can tell me what yours are at?
I’ve been wanting to do something similar to what your doing with the turtle hump was thinking of cutting it and making it flat cause I still want a cabin for storage.

Currently cruise is 32mph burning 1.3gph top speed 49 at 6400rpms seen 51mph once I think I should be doing better.
Goodluck with your build and if you have any questions for me feel free to ask.
