    After a disagrement with my table saw, (I fought the saw and the saw won!) I'm back to work on the project. The consoles are reupholstered and installed, a new glovebox door made of red HDPE, and the gunwhale tops replaced and covered with Tuffcoat. Here are a couple of new pics.

    Back to work on the boat again. This nice weather is making me kick myself for not working a harder on those cold winter days, and for not being more careful with my fingers around the table saw.

    Here are a couple of pics of the bow platform ready to paint. The starboard door is for the anchor locker. The port door is where the batteries for the bow mount trolling motor will go, and the center openings are a folding jumpseat similar to a Crestliner Sportfish.

    Looking good! Try to keep some fingers so you can finish this.

    Did you lose a finger (or part of), or were they able to save it?

    Fingers were saved, but mangled up the tips of the three middle fingers on my left hand. The worst part was getting chewed out by the Admiral (wife) for not being careful enough with the saw.

    I love the work on the consoles. Did you do it yourself or send them out to be reuplstered?

    Here is a look at the bow platform after painted with Tuff Coat. The hatches are fitted, and their edges wrapped with aluminum channel. Since my boat has to be versitile enough for a lot of different types of fishing and pull the grand kids on tubes and wakeboards, I added a jump seat to the bow. The front hatch folds up to make the seat back, then the rear hatch folds up to make the bottom. I can out either a planer board mast or a pedestal seat in the taperlock base.

    The port console is done and wired. I put in a stereo, and battery charger for the trolling motor batteries. I and I also put in a magnetic switch and l.e.d. lighting inside the glove box. Seating on this side is a lounger that is either 2 back to back seats or folds out flat. I bought the seats from Veada in New Paris, IN.
