Got a few more goodies in. Planning on getting some good work done this weekend. So far, it’s really been just purchasing the stuff. Now to actually install some things!

Got my engine harness and the equivalent to $70 worth of bolts from online. Would have been double the cost for the hardware through the local big box stores.

Didn't get as much done today as I was hoping, but we didn't get out there until late to work on the boat. 

Got the fencing mounted 100%. Needed to wait for the first part of the furniture to make sure the curve of the fencing and the furniture were going to work. Got all of the corners aligned and matched for excellent gate opening space. That was somewhat of a pain, but got it done. front Starboard furniture is mounted along with the console base. Also got the vinyl to carpet threshold  mounted and the main engine harness routed. Here's the only pic I have from today. Still need to get the rear port furniture installed, gate stops installed, ladder installed, cleats installed, corner caps completed, and the captains chair / pedestal installed. Hopefully the single person stuff can be done tomorrow. Found out that the stainless steel bolt galling issue is apparent. Had a few bolts/nuts go haywire on me, but nothing too bad.

pontoon looks great. I have the basic same layout minus the carpet. I just posted asking how to adhere the imitation teak to the sub floor. Could you let me know what you used and how you applied it? I would really appreciate it. I have one consistent roll 8 feet wide to cover my whole deck. Thanks,

Flint

Hey Flint,

Mine came with the teak vinyl already down. I just put the carpet down. I used the pontoonstuff glue though for the carpet and it's holding tight. I would think that the glue would work find for vinyl too. With the sealer on the bottom, you may just need to let it cure longer (I'm not an expert though).

Thanks for the compliments.

Also, received this in the mail yesterday Big smile

Won't be long now. When do you think you'll have her in the water?

well, Memorial day is her maiden voyage with friends. I'm hoping I'll have it on the water and tested in early May. Hopefully the testing just turns into a fun day out on the water due to no issues. Wink  doubtful though.

Been a little bit, but I got a little bit done.

 - Got the rear corner seat mounted where the fuel lines run through
 - New vent line ran
 - Fuel line pass through boot installed
 - Hole cut for fuel fill on outside of boat
 - Hole cut for console wiring to come up through the deck
 - Original chassis harness removed to diagram wiring in hopes to just reuse
 - Carpet to teak vinyl threshold installed
 - Livewell pump removed
 - Captains pedestal / chair installed
 - Ladder partially installed (need a couple more bolts of different lenghts)




 



Hoping to finally get the new fuel fill line installed tomorrow. It was impossible a couple weeks ago. The fuel fill line is thick and not flexible in 30* weather. Hopefully with some warm weather tomorrow and some lube, i'll be able to get it put on and finish mounting the fuel fill and get that part done. It has to go over the transom and drop about a 1/2" to fit on the fuel tank fitting.

Thanks! Does seem kind of weird. I was out there last night, working on these things, and besides the electrical aspect of things and getting the rest of the furniture in, there really isn't a lot of stuff left for me to work on right now. It's strange

I should get my battery cables and throttle control cables next week and I need to order my hydraulic steering ($$$$). The to do list is getting smaller for sure.

Got a few more things done yesterday.

 - First and foremost, I finally got my fuel line setup complete. It required some extra cutting on my corner bench seat to get the back off, but it finally is on! This thing has been a pain in the rear. Tight places and no flexibility with the hose!
 - Got my battery cables in and those ran. Ordered wrong fitting on one end of those, but oh well.
 - Remote oil tank lines ran
 - Decided to go with battery trays instead of battery boxes due to the shear size of the boxes, and the lack of accessibility. The marina only had one in stock, so I'll get the 2nd one later.
 - Prop installed
 - Factory chassis harness is now re-ran under the boat. Except for 1 speaker, all of the current harness wiring will fit

got a big more done tonight. All of my battery setup is installed except for actually hooking both batteries up. I ended up going with battery trays instead of boxes due to the tight space. The marina only had one tray, so I need to wait for them to get the 2nd one in.

Also got the piston for the seastar system installed.

getting nervous though to get it all done and get her fired up.

Get my hydraulic hoses in this week and hope to get my harness connector stuff tomorrow.

Also just ordered $100 worth of Opti Oil (dang that stuff's expensive!)

Got my hydraulic steering hoses in yesterday along with $100 worth of Opti Oil (3 gal). My wife is picking me up some small items from the Marina today (2nd battery tray, 2" rigging grommet, in line oil filter and hose, and some hose clamps.
Also got my connectors this week so I can make my own harness plugs vs. crimping.

Left on my to do list:
 - Mount bimini light to top and run wiring
 - Install bimini
 - Make connector plugs for all wiring
 - Install 2nd battery tray and hook up house battery
 - Install hydraulic hoses and bleed system
 - Install control cables (still waiting for these to ship)
 - Hook up battery, fuel, oil / filter, control cable, and harness to motor and finalize that
 - Install EZ fenders
 - Install console top
 - Start it up and pray
 - Drink a beer

Also got my HIN #'s from the state in today, so I need the local LEO to come out and verify that I've engraved them on the boat and then go register the boat / trailer so I can officially use it.
Then get hull numbers ordered

Still waiting on the 2nd 1/2 of furniture, which should be done on 5/19. I'll be rushing to get all of that in before our memorial day maiden voyage
