Good luck with the build. You will find that the budget and time frame will at least double. I can get you started with a pair of TRS transom assemblies and transmissions if that helps.

Keep focused on getting it on the water.
You keep mentioning paint, and designs - that's the last of your concerns right now. New Gauges?? That's gonna be a couple $$ too if ya want the pretty billet and Bling.
Get yourself some good reliable motors and drives, and put you're $$ into the rigging. At least get functional gauges, and build from there.
Vinyl work, if not too complicated, is pretty easy. I re-did the entire Cockpit and sunpad of my last boat over a winter myself. Bought a sewing machine and a few $100 in marine vinyl and went to town.

The paint can come later.
Actually, I don't mind the plain white wrapper look. But, it could use an accent color. Too wild of a paint scheme on that boat would look silly IMO.
BTW - It's a great looking boat.
Keep us informed WITH PIC'S of the progress.
Good Luck.

well.... maybe this is a complete mistake but i was thinkin i would try to attack it like this.....

1.Paint (so that i can match everything after that)
2.Interior(Vinyl, Guages, Flooring)
3.Some minor rigging
AFTER THESE STEPS AND READY TO BOLT THE POWER AND DRIVES IN I WAS GOING TO TRY TO SPEED THINGS UP A LITTLE BY BORROWING AGAINST THE BOAT FOR THE POWER...
Is that a bad approach ... give me feedback... if i wait to come up with all of the funds for the power then it might be a long time before you ever see me at a poker run... I think this is my best approach besides if i get turned down at that point the boat will just be sittin there screamin at me to finish and i will make it happen somehow...
