It will be close Marc. Hopefully I can get it all setup and working right before Saturday. If not, I can always just bring it to show you guys and ride with one of you. It would be a pity though because someone needs to be faster than you! ;)

Hey Jacques, what are your plans, are you going to have that T.O.P. broken in before you come over to AH?  Getting close...

I hope you don't plan on using those paddles to dock your boat, we want to see the real deal?!.

RickG post=114333 userid=965Damn! You've been busy. Looking great!

Marc, Those paddles might just be too pretty to get wet. ;)



I could shave off them so glossy...

Getting there
This weekend I first finished varnishing the transom mahogany pieces and also finished up my paddles:



I machined a nice cover flange for where the drain plug is in the floor:



I also worked extensively running wiring and trying to make it so you don’t see a bunch of separate wires all over the place. I used a lot of that braided wire wrap mesh:







I also got my LED interior lights working and hidden so you don’t really see the strips (just the light):
