The hardest part was getting the dowel into the hinge. Lots of lithium grease or any lube helps. In hindsight a tiny round file may have helped. Also drilling out the rivets proved a little challenging.

All worth it in the end.
Very dramatic change in looks.

I really like the mods. It makes the look of the boat stand up.

I think powder coating the tower black too would really change the look of the boat.
