Nice ride Gary! And good to see you over here!

I always thought the dual console would make a roomy fishing boat.... Great set of canvas too! I love my aft Bimini. Had one on the 94 Sailfish and now on the 2001 Marlin......

How did you replace the transom without cutting across the inside of the boat?

I didn't post the pictures showing it. The transom was replaced past the motor well on each side which was partially removed for access. The rot was contained to that area, so it did not require a complete removal gunnel to gunnel.
