Thanks! I’m getting close to wrapping up the list of “changes” she’s very basic and that’s exactly why I bought her. I looked for a long time and everything was either too fishy or too yachty. Lifting rails are happening this week, prop next week and back in the water.That’s great you could get a “stock” item times two, great price. I guess my engineering wasn’t major, or they forgot to charge me! My overall and drawer dimensions were custom, width and length, and the aft station door was totally new. They also sent me drawings of them. I wasn’t sure if I should go with the Plano box style, looking at yours I really do like it.
Your new boat is awesome by the way!
Both of these units are beautiful, functional and appear well built. I had been looking around for a tackle center before seeing these, and have contacted Boat Outfitters for one of my own. They are taking a standard unit and making it a freestanding model. The cost is a little more but worth it for the finished product. Thanks for posting!Thanks!

Have you been happy with the aft steering station now that you’ve had a chance to use it? I’m building a boat in Orleans. Where do you keep your boat? I thought you said Provincetown? I’d like to take a look at your setup since I’m thinking of doing something similar.Ok, last but not least. Finished tackle center. Plus, rear helm station. Lower door, pull out drawer, autopilot, on/off buttons, electronic shifter, electronic toggle lever for steering. After you use it, slide it back in so customers don’t hit it.Will use it primarily for backing into the slip, backing down on fish, or moving 50-100 yards here and there to stay over a school of striped bass. Forgot the bowthruster control, will have to probably put it on top of tackle center, aft starboard corner, we will see.
have you been happy with your tackle storage boxes from Boat Outfitters? Are they mounted in the cockpit? Does your gear stay dry?I had this one done by boat outfitters, it’s built out of two stock units. The stock units were $2100 delivered to have them engineer a similar unit that was basically the same size was $4500. They are a good company and nice folks, but the engineering fees are beyond justifiable.
