The fuel tanks are behind the front boxes. (2) 150 gallon tanks. So good to go

That seems to great addition especially if that area was just bulk head and stringers. Are there storage boxes both forward and rear of the rod pvc inserts?

Thanks for sharing,

Have you loaded it up with Rods and more important reels? The big butts need support.

I sketched this up. Up towards the bow is bracing for the cap. Storage box is only rear of the rod PVC inserts. There will be above deck storage infront of the rod pvc.

I probably made matters worse. Lol

Dave came up with an idea for removeable rod support. You will have to stay tuned until its built further in the process.

They look small in the picture but they are larger than me.

Dual (2) 150 gallon tanks. For a total of 300 gallons.

The 600 gallon option I would never use.

300 Gallons should be ample for this setup. Making nice progress!

Cant wait to see the extension. Might be a good place to throw a cast net from.

I would have a drawer for leader, on the face of the drawer have holes with some sort of rubber grommets that tightly fit each size leader, and a Tri-Shear cutter mounted close by. It would make for quick rigging and would keep leader out of the sun, even when rigging.

Looking good! Can you glass the console to the deck if the customer wanted that?
