    I really like that you posted the build of the house. Most times you never get to see the construction aspects.
    Info and materials are usually fill in the blanks!
    Best of Luck! and Thank you!;)

    Looks epic. I'm definitely going to do this to my folks steiger craft. I absolutely hate bass style boats. Looks like a baby stroller

    So the moral of the story is this: Make it look faster...........and it will be faster. ;) Enjoy the season!

    Wow, what a good looking boat. It was good looking before, you made it even better looking. Nice work.

    I have a canvas guy coming this week, is there any material/ brand I should tell them to use? Or any material or brand I should stay away from? One of my friends has a contender with a canvas that almost feels like plastic more than fabric, I want to use that but I have no clue what that material is.

    IMO, those rectangular windows give the boat a more traditional downeast pilothouse look over the angled bass boat windows.

    If you kept the original bass boat style windows, the hardtop would have looked like an afterthought, or worse, some unholy Merrit/Rybovich/Northern Bay union.

    That's really well done. Congratulations!

    Stratglass is softer just don't roll it up ez2cy is pricey. Either way snap it up without rolling it up. Had strataglass on my last two sportiest and loved it.
