Some people may think this is over thinking it.... they are right.


I think I'm going to go drive down tomorrow to layout the rod holders so we can get that order placed.

Still going to have a few more goodies on it but you get the idea.
Did you change your mind and will be adding cup holders? I know I’ve said it before but you will be sorry if you don’t add some helm ones.

Plan on having have 1 next to the joystick. And possibly a few in between the helm seats. We will see.

One things for sure.... The boat wont lack cup holders.

Better two beside the helm. Cause if you only use one you will be the one without one.

The Evinrude switch is mounted crooked. That one thing would drive me crazy. It messes with my Zen.

It is actually mounted with the curvature of the console in that area, I think. It looks like it may not be mounted yet. There appears to be a line above it that would make it "square", maybe.

It's an optical illusion placed there to make all the THT muppet hecklers break out in hives. Just for the record if mine looks crooked, please don't tell me.

Back in my Army days we used to leave one teeny glaring thing for IG to find. Nothing serious enough to even be written up but they would. They'd find that we'd argue about it to keep them busy for a while. Once their time was done that one thing in the report made them look silly so they would delete it.

Micrometer measurements edge to edge with the trim switches. Call out the lawyers and non boat owning judges of all THT.

It's not screwed in place yet, it's just set there to show the layout. Maybe wait for the final critique when she's ready to be delivered.

Yeah I saw the line above, like that's where it was mounted. I couldn't tell if screws were in it or not.

Gotcha. Wasn't a critique just an observation.

Lol. First thing I noticed when he sent me the pics. After the massive screens.

When I'm renovating houses it can be a gift or a curse.

Like people already said earlier. It wasnt mounted yet. Dave was just excited to show me the MDFs. He texted me the pic and I was excited so I posted it.

Even if it was completed, I would want you to say something. The opinions help me. And my feedback helps Dave constantly improve his brand.

Thank you for commenting and watching the build

This was an important piece.

Having a large coffin box / lounger was important on the wish list.

Seat passed the eye test and the rear test.






Both the cushions and the pipe work are not mounted. Just "dry fitting"
