Default 32 Whitewater build (Finished/new pics)

Finally!
Finally, I get to start the thread, Iíve been waiting on. I put down my deposit on 2/23/17, with a 12 month wait. Typical delays and hurricane Irma pushed me back, but now itís started. I talked to Cindi this morning and she said that the gel coat had been sprayed and they would be starting to lay the fiberglass. Hopefully, Iíll be able to get some pictures up, for your viewing pleasure. I will mostly rely on other members here for photos, because Iím 10 hrs away. Anyone who goes by, please take pictures and feel free to post on this thread or to my Instagram @shaneh_full_hookups.

Let me try to outline the build:
Whitewater 32 low cap with a drop down bracket
Whisper Gray hull and deck
Transom Live well/extra fuel/fresh water/raw water/extra bildge pump/Electric reel outlets/
Trim tabs/anchor locker/toe relief/pull up cleats/rod holder/rod racks/insulated 85gal fish box.
Black caulk and black steering wheel
Twin DF350ís (black) rigged by International Marine
Simrad electronics rigged by International Marine
(2) NSS 12 Evo 3
(2) RS35 VHF radios with digital antennas
B275HLW glassed in hull
Simrad AP44 medium
Simrad dome radar
Soft top with Taco 380ís
Leaning post for Frigid Rigid tackle center
All pipe work painted black (awlgrip)
Wet sounds stereo system
Rhodan TM

I will keep this thread updated as I get information. You can also follow the build on my Instagram @shaneh_full_hookups.

dang man, if I were you I would've started the build thread when I put the deposit down and then tortured everyone for a year with the wait.

This boat is gonna be sick. Twin 350 zukes!
I didn't even know they had a low cap mold for the 32.
I'll be following on IG. (brindisea is me)

My understanding is that the low cap is what you typically see on the 32 open.

Congrats, and I am looking forward to updates. The black accents and even the caulk will be sick. Are you gonna paint the rod holders, cleats, hardware black too?

Any more info on the low cap mold? I also did not know they had that option, and have never seen a 32 like that in person.

I'm trying to gather some information on how the paint will hold up on the items mentioned. Those items will see a lot of friction, so I may end up leaving them. Line-x is also an option on those.

Hopefully Barracuda, Big Bone, or Catch up will come along and give you some more information on the low cap vs high cap. I believe that Barracuda was the first one to tell me to be sure that I got the low cap, if I chose the 32.

Great build! I have the 32WW open and it does have a lower cap than the cuddy. Looks more like the 28. I'll post a pic.


I would add hinges to the fish boxes and maybe some or all of the storage hatches. Makes it easier when its rough, loading the boat up and if you fish with 1-2 people.

I've thought about adding hindges, and it's not too late. I was kind of liking the simplicity of the tab system he uses, though. Would you elaborate further about why you think I need the hindges? Thanks

Thank you! That's a possibility, but I won't likely be back down, until it's time to take the boat over for motors.

While I'm still in dream mode - I have my version of a 28 pretty well planned out. On the hinge issue I think I would want hinges only on the hi - use boxes such as the fish boxes and livewell(s). Don't have a real good reason aside from the frequency of opening/closing those
compartments. I still like the idea of completely lifting out the remaining hatches if needed.

I am a big fan of black accents on boats as well

If you are going to do anything to the metal work, LINE X is the only way to go IMO. I am kicking myself for not waiting to have Brian do my T-Top and metal work. I had it powder coated and all ready have a couple small chips in the powder coating. The next build will be done in LineX.

+1 my last WW did not have hinges, my new one will. I understand and can appreciate simplicity but when it is rough or you are trying to hold a lid while putting something in a box while it’s rough or it’s slippery, sometimes hatches fall. There is a bunch of ways for all the different hatches to put them in the gutter leaning against the gunnels, coffin, transom etc. But sometimes the slip. Especially when other people are doing things and aren’t used to the lids with no hinges.

What he said pretty much sums it up. One thing that would bug me was having friends on the boat and they would remove the hatches and lay them on the deck. Well the screws from the tabs and latch can scratch the deck if they slide. Which most non boaters donít think of that. Iíve also had a few people put the lid on wrong. Tabs where the latch would go.
The hatches are also larger on the 32í so itís a bigger cover to move around. If I were building one I would put hinges on the high use ones like RT mentioned.

Okay, It seems like a simple add. Would you guys hinge them with the length of the boat or towards the side? How about gas struts?

Low cap means what? PCs of reg cap?

Twin DF 350 s seem like a match made in heaven. Close to 2.0 mpg light I bet.

I would have friction hinges on the livewell lid and that's it.
Love the simplicity of the tab system and no hinges. Being able to completely clear the lid away is great when cleaning or working in the bilge or pulling fish out of the box at the end of the day. Don't ever have to worry about replacing gas struts and/or dealing with potentially rusting hardware.
To each their own, of course. Pros and cons on all sides.
