    The start of the light rails, getting the angles cut to fit perfect was quite the challenge!

    Comming along nicely, needs vertical supports, light mounting tabs, and round tube around top edge to protect reel string when fish are on! Aluminum cup holders installed

    Round tube installed on edges, just needs the welds smothed on joints

    Jordan had the idea of cutting out the fiberglass live well in front of the primary console, fabbing an aluminum tray and mounting 3 battery's in it. There now out of the way and centered in boat. 4 bank onboard charger installed as well

    We cut a lot of cardboard and used pins for pivots before we built the Jack plate for 9.9 kicker motor. We're getting 13" of lift from it to get kicker out of water when running big motor
