Default Looking good.

There is a beautiful 31 in my boat club that I drool over every time I see.
Congratulations. Enjoy.

Do you have details on the friction hinges? I like the idea, especially on the bilge hatch.

Headhunter- I'm going to be changing my livewell, electronics window, and anchor box hinges to friction from Gemlux.

They said the 1.5" x 1.5" appear to be the same size.

All the in deck lids are the piano hinges.

I looked them up, I think Manny used them on my rear livewell but not anywhere else.

When is this weather going to stop blowing? I can't wait to see you on the water. June for the FSFA for sure.

New pics pipework just needs some final welds and will be ready for install.



Crows nest is positioned to rear to allow room for open array radar. It will lay down or be able to be removed. Note steps on both sides of rear legs for access



Two forward leg mounted rod holders on nest for pitch rods

That's gonna be a sexy ride! Congrats. My 31 should be in the mold by November. Well that's what I'm hearing but I know how things go. I have my finger crossed.

Getting close,, changed out to whisper grey on underside on hardtop. Here is the top ready to go on the boat.



Also rigging continues, electronics on dash all mounted.

Pretty sure this boat is in the Carolinas some where already. My 31' just came out of mold and there is one in front of me that will be delivered next week. So this one has been gone for couple months now.

Default Boat is ridiculous

I have fished this boat with the owner multiple times now. It is a hardcore offshore fishing machine. I won’t post pictures without his permission but the boat is incredible.
