    Looks great

    Question...how you plan on setting boat up?..center steer? Side steer? Fuel cell placement? Might have problems with rear seat placement if planned

    Reason is..my knees are similar..pushed my tank about 10" forward..had to extend my splash well to cover tank.

    Just a thought. (Maybe I missed your plans earlier in thread..in a phone now)

    I am planning on two 15 gal or so fuel cells connected with a crossover tube and the batt in the middle in front of the knees.
    I will build a box for the bench seat to sit on and this will cover the tanks and batt.
    I am leaving the top half as made with the splash well.
    I have not made my mind up yet on steering set up.
    I am thinking a quick change steering plate set up that can be flipped for side or center steering and the seats done this way also.
    The knees are there to tie the angled pad and the transom together and make it more stable when up on the pad.
    The knees go to the transition point on the pad. This should make for a rock solid pad.
    The sides of the transom will be tied in to the box for the seat.

    This is the fuel cell I will use. it is blank with no holes so I can set it up as needed.
    There will be two one on each side of the knee braces.

    I will use a seat like this for the shell. It will fit perfect with 6" above the splash well when sitting on the box for the fuel cells and batt.

    I'm not going to push to hard want it to be fun not a job. That and I need to save the cash as I go.
    Will be about $1500 for the build up of just the hull in materials.
    Got that covered so far.
    I was going to do it in wood and vinalester but had the cash after selling my 94 Z28 I had from new.
    So corecell, Coosa and epoxy will be what I use.
    Got a twin rack steering setup and some of the eng stuff already.
    Have to make a choice on the paint type also. Have bin looking at awlcraft 2000.

    I have a idea in my head pulling from just one tank. I will have a fill on both with a 1" line between the two on the bottom back ends. Then I will put a ball valve in that line to isolate them for filling or hold one as a reserve.
    I like those tanks as I can put the fillers any where I want and also any fitting where I want.
    Thy also make a hold down just for that tank. No cobbling together any thing to do the job.
    Thy make kool fillers with extension tubes. will have one on each side of the back deck.
    Have a hose crimper on my service truck and go to the parker store all the time for stock.
    Can make any hose I want cheep.
    Will come in handy as I stock the hose to make the steering up on my truck.
    Remember I have bin a hydraulic aerial lift mechanic for over 30 years.

    Equal parts Cabosil and epoxy 1 hour and can still set the core.
    Should be able to set the core by my self and put the top back on with screws in the pop rivet holes wile it cures.
    Epoxy is the only way to go! No guessing on the mix and predictable long kick time.

    This should make for a very enjoyable build.
