This boat looks f***ing awesome!!! Love your work and dedication, many lose interest before they get to this point. Tell me what you did on the windshield, did you powder coat it?

hi
From a few pages back, I realize you moved on from the plastic gas tank but can you tell us what the tool/threaded inserts are that you were able to use in that blind fashion? I assume that is a threaded rivet ? do you have a brand name or source?
also, how well did the fiberglassed plexi work holding up your boom storage rack. was it strong enough?
btw, great job on the whole project, its a real inspiration.

so we used a "astro 1442" crimping tool to crimp the threaded insert holding the bulk head fitting plate to the tank, the tool is called "astro 1442" pics below.. we riveted in the threaded insert then screwed the plate done was pretty easy..

I haven't mounted the boom bracket to those plexi pieces yet but if I could go back I'd use wood, I'm regreting using plexi the screws don't bite and hold as well as I was hoping.. we will see once I try and mount it

working on stereo and other electrical like the heated seats, double battery setup, phone charging station and mounting new speakers to my fly high pylon pole, i found speakers that actually fit directly on to the pylon pole

Fininshed wiring in the second battery, second solenoid, amps, fuse block, side gunwalls, stereo...


Still need to wire heated seats, USB charger and 12v charger.

I'm also thinking about installing a mini 1.5gal compressor under the bow..

My new bimini will arrive today and My carb rebuild by Peter B. Will arrive thursday..
