Unbelievable! Kudos for you for going the distance on it! I thought my interior and rerig of my boat went down the rabbit hole! You have officially gone down an intergalactic worm hole! LOL Good for you because you will end up with everything you want and not be semi satisfied and second guessing what if.

Thank you for the kind words. I haven't made it yet and honestly we just got so far into this that we can't quit now. I really am looking forward to seeing it finished. It just seems like it never ends and my will is tested about every week. I'm going up this weekend to help start laying up the transom and engine bay.

Where is the boat located?........Will she be an ocean or lake boat?.............To me, the 36' wide body is the best in it's class for on board comfort, ease around the deck and sheer displacement.

Boat is in Ohio and will be primarily a Lake Erie boat but I have a bucket list of places and poker runs I want to do with it. We are trying to make it simple, easy to use and maintain but still be able to run pretty well. The only thing that keeps me going is I still haven't found another boat that I like as much. There are plenty of others out there but the 36 widebody is still my personal favorite. Next is probably 35 TS playboy...then 42x.

Drive cut outs were a disaster.

More done, reinforced the hull under the fuel tank, tank put back in, transom getting blanked out and prepped for new core and glass.

I met you a couple weeks ago when I dropped my flat deck off for Bruce to look at. I stopped by Friday to drop off some stuff for Bruceís Camaro and looked in on your project. It looks like heís been hitting it hard since I saw it weeks ago. Itís going to be amazing when you are finished!
