Dont want people getting distracted by my exhaust removal and test fit of seats and wiring organization. At this rate of obsessing the boat won't see water this year.. Lol

Other things I worked on was exhaust tips that leaked. Have decided to reseal everything including pitot tubes avd swim platform mount. Unless anyone would advise against touching the swim platform mounts.

First picture is new bilge pump wiring organization. Then draining fuel from boat to gf's car. Then lifting tank to get to hose clamps on exhaust pipe to tips.

I would fill it with West Systems filler... I would do for piece of mind. Looks like it was over tightened and the structural integrity is still there...IMO

I wouldn't sweat the exhaust flanges too much -

I would leave the platform mounts alone - maybe give them a quick spray - unless you see a real problem.. IMO

Cleaning the one tip I got off. Then had to run weekend was over.

Today picked up final interior part and got nice piece of the dark grey vinyl he used for my seats to cover the cupholder I had a family friend make. Going to look awesome.

Thanks Mike! I certainly appreciate the advice. I'm really looking forward to the decals. I just have so much to do and wanted to get the carpet in. Should be getting close tho need one more full day of compounding to be satisfied its good enough before they go on.

The interior? I had done at Ken's auto upholstery in Pittsfield MA. I made a thread in the interior section with pictures and contact info. That being said maybe a month lead time or less depending how busy he is. Exceptional work. Really nice guy.

Received cup holder from friend. He made it out of some composite building material. Going to cover in the dark gray vinyl I got from my upholstery guy. Was going to add a vent with extra logo on it Mike gave me but now I'm thinking just they vinyl no vent would look very clean.
