I built the Semi/RV to pull the Schiada when we were racing.


Also came up with another seating ?

I have been playing with the side view of the boat and a replacement deck. Ideas ?
A little old school.

Here is a photo of the hole I need to rebuild.


I also ordered a product called C-Flex to build a mold-less deck. Its cool stuff and can be made strong and light. So we will see?

I will make the motor cover with it along with the side panels.With that I will also be using "Coosa Board" to replace the old plywood floor and other wood things.
When I get the transom housing removed we will see if any work is needed in the transom ? Man,I have a lot of stuff to cut out still ! I would leave the wood floor but we all know what will happen,maybe ?
But I can out 30% of the weight by using Coosa.

I have a question about seating.

Side-by-side on the boat center line ?
Split left and right seats on port and starboard sides.
Side-by-side all to the port ? Center most seat on hull center-line.
Side-by-side all to the starboard ? Center most seat on hull center-line.

I will also be building the seat system.I did some looking around for a DIY and had very little luck. Anybody have any links ?

Great thread randy! Anybody with enough money can go out and buy a boat and run it but there’s something different about it when the boats all done when you’ve touched every inch of it. As for your seating arrangements I would think two seats side by side with a small counsel in the middle would be an option to consider. On the counsel you could place your throttles and trim and tab controls so if the wife, girlfriend, buddy, etc wanted to drive you could still comfortably and safely run all the other functions of the boat. It would also give you the option to throttle left handed or right handed by simply moving the helm / orbital valve to the other side if you leave enough length is your hydraulic hoses.

keep up the good work!

Anybody shoot themselves in the foot before ? I have been building and working on boats for a very long time.
This is the first time I wanted to undo something on one of my boats. Man did I over build this floor.
But its a good / bad thing. Maybe I'm just getting old ? LOL
But I got the first of the floor up.




The last photo shows the underside of the plywood floor and its bottom glass layup.This is something one doing a new floor should do. This will help with keeping water out that can come from below. All you need to do is lay up one layer of glass on the sheet and then cut out the part needed for the floor. Seal up the cuts with some resin and then glass in place.

Still trying to get the dash look in my head.
Then I will start building the temp supports for the dash and deck.

Ran into a little plan change. Having a problem getting the Coosa Board over to AZ. ( At a good price.)
Don't know why its not used on the West coast ? Oh well.

Plan will be to use Marine ply in its place. I have never had a problem before so its all good except the weight.
May need to work on that ?
