    Well the boats home. Started working on it now that it's in the barn. I'm headed back to work Tuesday for 3 weeks so i'm just trying to get everything off that is coming off the boat and get it cleaned so we can get a good idea of what we need to do to get ready for the summer. The trap tables are off, ones sold and hopefully the other will be sold this week. The 14" hauler is coming off the bulkhead and we will be putting a 10" or 12" hauler at a 45degree angle on the rail. Once the new hauler is on we'll be having an A-frame davit made. The two starting batteries were pulled out from the cabin and will be moved aft on the port side of the engine. 2 House batteries will be installed on the starboard side. We also want to add 20-40 gallons worth of fresh water tank/s to the stern below deck. Two more hatches will also be put in on either side of the center line fuel tank. Besides that we are going to barrier coat and bottom paint the bottom, touch up the boot stripe, and a bunch of other painting/gelcoating to do. We are going to be putting a bunch of rod holders on, not sure how many yet, and then cutting in a tuna door. Lastly(hopefully, anyway for this year.) will be installing the Simrad NSS8 and AP35 autopilot. Should be a busy spring! Oh, and I put on a new steering wheel, 16" destroyer steering wheel is for sale!!

    We are going to do a bit of everything. Tuna fish, dive, charter, cruise. Whatever gets us on the water and makes a buck. Better than being on the hard!!

    Id keep that hauler... good for anchors, tuna and all sorts of things. Even if you move it to the back of the house with a 2nd station or controls and jog lever

    we are going to keep the hauler, just move it to a more convenient place and downsize it, as i have no need for a 14" hauler. This is pretty much what I'm looking to do.

    My boat was set up with the hauler on the rail like that. It was horrible. I just removed it and will be putting it on the bulkhead.

    rope firing across the deck sucks... So does having the hauler not "square" to what you are doing IMHO

    Also my own opinion..... all I can see is my leg and knees bashing off the hauler all day in a rough sea..... just my thought

    I know all the pro's and con's of mounting the hauler on the rail. For what im going to do with the boat, I think it will work out best for us. Not much done today before I head to work. I got the name off the back of the boat to prep for the new name. I also found an ice machine today. 350lbs/day and two year old, $800. Not too bad, considering the place ive been getting free ice from is not going to work out for me any more. Also threw a picture of the wheel to shore more of the cavitation burns, wish i knew how long it was since he last had it tuned up.

    Awesome looking boat. How high is the wheel house? Can a tall person (6'5) stand in the wheel house without hitting his head? The boat looks huge.

    Not sure how high the wheelhouse is but I'm 5'4 and can stand on the engine box without my head hitting the top, and my buddy is 6'4, and doesn't hit the top, so i guess it's tall enough! Wishing I was home right now working on my boat instead of the rig that I'm on!
