She’s getting closer! I really like the way the Garmin 8616’s fill up the console. Also really happy with the shark grey.

That Shark Grey looks great! How long before she’s done?

Loving the shark grey on the underside of the t-top. It looks sharp and should be great for cutting glare.

No rear legs on the ttop? That color is perfect

Rear legs are coming. I am getting custom 2 rows of rocket launchers. Deleted the kingfish rod holders and getting the Gemlux Coastal system instead

Very good idea. I didn't get enough rod holders on the t-top and now I am looking at getting some work done to my t-top this offseason.

That looks AMAZING! good luck with it! and be sure to keep us up to speed on the speed! Also how much better is it that you have the second station? seems like a lot of expense for not a whole lot of height. i will admit i have no idea about that and fish in the GOM

I got the second station for triple tail and tarpon. I didn’t get it as high as I could have but i didn’t want the platform in my face when I am driving from below.

Good move. I have a cat and the two mistakes I made with the build were
(1) not getting a second station because [a]the backbay fishing here can be very shallow and being up on what is essentially a high poling platform would be very helpful and [b]when offshore trolling for tuna or fishing for mahi i'd like to get higher on those calm days for the visibility
(2) not getting enough rod holders on the t-top

Can’t figure out how to reduce the video file to post it but Chase wet tested it today and it was doing 38 @ 3400 RPM’s.
