well today my mission was to get the bondo work done so i could mount the livewell thursday[tomorrow].. which i'm still aiming for.. And then make the doors for the deck.

Well my dad told me last week [yeah..scroll down and see what he said] that he didnt have anything to do this week and he'd help me every day..

well its wedensday and i'm out there workin and i was takin tools out the shop and getting set up for the days work.. and i got a glimpse of somethin red.. and it was my dads dakota and here he is a walkin out to the shop ..

he said

Number 1... i wish you'd a waited on me to do the floor and you didnt.. but DO NOT put the cable steering togeather without me because if you dont get that right and a cable comes loose the motor will torque and throw you and anthony in the water.. but your trying.. and i'm glad.. and its workin and comming along great.. Good job.. [ i felt like a million bucks hearing that from my dad.. he just dosent hand out Good Jobs every day]
Number 2. That deck..you shoulda put doors in the front, so you can open them up in the seat and your feet arent in the water.. he aproximated the seat pedestal area and your feet rest on the bow.. So then he helped me fix the problem with the steering 'collumn' moving... then he left.. He said he'd help me with the floor probally saturday.. but if i can get the livewell mounted i'm gunna hit the lake sunday probally.. jsut for a little test run

Theres the glastron sittin under the shed.. this is looking out the shop door..





There the bottom of the deck..







Bondo Work... I was gunna do it last.. and i did.. but after i decided to do somethin else.. then some more.. so while i was puttin the wiring in to make sure i could hook up everything correctly... i lay my FAVORITE fleece down into the bondo.. it'll harden and i'll pick it off.. but it made me mad.. haha



I decided that i was gunna do the doors up front.. i wanted to cut the doors the size they would need to be so i didnt have to put 1/2" doors in .. so i was tryin out my luck and see if i had any of my grandpa in me.. he can make everything out of anything and anything out of nothing.. he could plant a rock and make it grow and close his eyes and guess and its right.

So i took about 3 mesurements and did some line drawing and set the saw blade to a little deeper than the plywood.. and started cutting..



not to bad eh?



the other was easy.. theres it back in the boat and the doors on it..



theres them open.. i'm probally gunna have them open to the sides.. what do yall think?

Hope to get the livewell mounted tomorrow.. and then throw some Thompsons at the deck wood and the flooring..

thanks bama!

I dug out an old seat today.. its torn on the front seam, but we've got two seats.. now i've gotta get two short pedestals so i'll have my two riding seats.. and we'll just stand and fish until we get the front kingpin pedestal and then a seat for the back one.

Today i got anthony up to the house for a bit so we put in the livewell tube and got it sealed up.. then i took out all the wood that was done and water sealed it heavy and i still have alot left...





theres the top and bottom



my brother took this while i was watersealing.. haha



theres the back piece. I cut it out today with a jig saw...thats also after i laid the sealer on it... that piece is hard to get in so i wanted to go ahead and put it in.




then theres the rest of it behind the shop.. i'll put some hinges on the deck tomorrow.. and then get pieces for the back.. unless i get one of those oblong 4x8" pedestal feet i'm going to have to not use the back doors.. But i still may order one...

Tomorrow i'll get the back pieces in and screwed down.. then the side pieces pretty well done.. put the wiring back in and the lights and black moulding.. then mount the back plate.. may hang the 'rude too..

then were gunna leak test it again..


depending on what gets done we may go try and leak test the boat in the lake.. and if i can find the dag gumm stickers.


Everything but the motor sticker was in one file.. and we lost that file.. so now we have no titles.. no nothing except for the motor sticker..

lmao, go ahead and use it all pal. let it soak in ther real good. heck, just pour it on and spread it out. it ain't hurt a thing.
and yes i do understand how bad you want to use the rig buddy. i was just yanking yer chain a bit. i truly want to see you in it fishing mr photo. i really do. someone that has put as much effort and work into a rig like you have, DESERVES to have as much fun as you can. i hope that you are keeping a scrape book of the progress for future use too.

the more you do photo, the better and more detailed you will make em. you'll learn mistakes from the past ones and make better ones in the future rigs. i look forward to seeing more fixed rigs by you. you are a very good boat maker.
