    Will show this when I get there.
    The fuel filter and pump. Also the trim pump will get the same treatment.
    Ordered the clamp mid and swivel work from Michael Chapman to day.
    Will go with a single cly clamp and swivel with a bass mid and a two piece adapter cut to 15".
    Will put the new style trim pump with the plastic reservoir in the boat mounted on the transom.
    Only piece missing now is the cowl.
    I have a line on a bridge port style cowl and pan that I think I will use.
    Bobs nose on the 88 2.4 big bearing larg shaft lower that I have already.
    There will be no jack plate. the 15" mid will put the shaft center at the pad level sitting on the transom.
    I will start there and see how it goes before I raise the eng up.
    Have a duel rack ride guide that I will setup opposed cable. have all the wear pieces new and the steering wheel shaft also. I will use the new style cables modified to fit in this rack.
    It is all coming together little by little.
    Can't wait to get on the hook!!!!!!!
    You will be ready for the first Silver Glen , St Johns run of the summer ! The Moorings in Palatka is the deal for this run , must get in contact now !

    I was looking at the Bobs manual plate that you can swap from 2 1/2" set back to 5".
    The word is keep the set back as close as you can.
    I have time to decide on the jack.
    If I can find one I will put a MOD VP/ Bridgeport tuner on it also.
    It should be done just in time for the summer heat.
    But I'm not setting any time frame.
    Still got a lot to do.

    The last of the large layup is done...........................................!
    Will clean up the edges tomorrow and set the top on to see where I am at.
    The floor is solid as a rock using the 15# Coosa and DB1700 one layer on top and one on the bottom.
    Could no imagine using Poly or vinyl ester and doing this by my self.
    No mixing monkeys needed.
    It is one continuous piece from front to back.
    the two 10 gal fuel tanks will be here next week. I will make the platforms for them in the back of the wings before I set the top on.

    Hello Man,
    Looks great, it's been a few years since I've done one and the choice of materials used has me wanting to do another.

ID:	315927Dang it looks like a boat again ....!
    Well to all the nay sayers the top fit good..........
    Just a slight push and it all lines up. Will drill the 3/16 holes for the pop rivets now.
    Have two more braces on the outer ends of the transom to fit. then finish the lay up of the transom and knees.
    I will put a 2x4 across the hull and then set the top on. Starting at the back and move the 2x4 forward as I lay putty and pop rivet the top back on.
    Then I will go inside and smooth the excess putty. Then I will use 4" tape to tie it all together.
    The seat is just for mock up. It will sit on the floor with a slide adjuster under it. Plenty of height to see over the wind shield. also the front bulk head is set perfect for the foot peddle to rest ageists. May have to put a spacer on the steering wheel. Will see when I get there.
    I'm hyped now to get moving with this..................................................

    Nice job

    Just a suggestion.... but I would eliminate the splash well
    make Flat across, will make glass work underneath much easer and stronger
    Extra space for rigging is nice also. One thing I wish I had done on the Viper

    Note sure if u made mention at some point during thread

    The splash well is staying as built. All the glass work was done with the top off.
    The splash well has bin reinforced and boxed in.
    The side braces for the transom will tie in to this and the floor.
    Hate the look of a chopped up Vector.
    The splash well is there for a reason. To keep water from splashing in to the boat when slowing down.
    All the problems with the splash well cracking are being addressed.

    The fuel tanks came in today. Looks like a good fit.
    10gal. each in natural polly. Will not need a fuel gage now.
    I can see how much I have in the tank.
    I can move them forward much more if need be.
    May make a adjustable mounting setup so I can move them back and forth as need be for what kind of running I will do.
    Thy sit up off the floor some so thy will drain to a small sump tank in the back on the floor.
    I will also put foam in them to keep the fuel from sloshing around.
    One fill cap on each top side of the deck for each tank.

    I finished the side knees and the final lay up on the center knees.
    Time to put the top on for good next.
    I may put one more layer on the transom first.
    The side knees will tie in to the frame work around the splash well.
    Just getting tired of all the layup.
    Want to start on the rigging and eng build.
    Has bin a year working on this hull on and off and I still have to flip it over and check the bottom.

    Then comes the worst part making it look good.............................what to cover it with?
