    I take it this isn’t your first boat-building rodeo?!

    Really nice work!

    Right now I do not have pictures of the bracket, but I had one welded. I built the hatches and openings. Yes, those are hinges I mortised into the deck flush and are fastened with 1/4-20’s from the back side. Look pretty good, nothing to stub your toes on and no screws to look at. I didn’t do gutters on these hatches for a few reasons, but I am doing them in another build and could go over ideas for the build process if they arnt coming from a mold. I’ve been tracking materials cost but have lost track of labor although I’m able to estimate on that end. Other than that..... no this isn’t my first rodeo haha

    I'm assuming the hinges were custom made?

    Actually the hinges were offered by a company somewhere on the west coast. I stumbled across them one night searching the web because I wasn’t pleased with the look of generic hinges

    Here are a few finish pics of the build. Completed beginning of the summer, just havnt uploaded pics. 135 Honda seeing 30kts wot cruise approx 21-22 kts. Still adjusting motor height and need to play with a few props until I’m happy, but I’m pleased with the speed. Looking to built a custom hardtop t top over the winter
