This job left the shop at the beginning of this month, but admittedly, I've been to busy to post as frequently as I would have liked.

Anyway, this boat was built for a customer in Northern Virginia. Boat is a 1756 G3, built as a tournament electric only boat. Boat was going to be mostly decked, save for a small lower area, and was to be complete with multiple Humminbird 1198s, Humminbird 360, 8.5' rod locker, 37 gallon livewell, etc.

Here's the boat when we started. New 1756 G3, with factory floor kit and aft hatch lid.
Image

Image

Image

Now, we start building in the livewell and rod locker.
Image

Then, we add one of the forward bulkheads.
Image

And, a battery hatch.
Image

Image

Side tackle hatch and side deck piece. Note that the rod locker and battery hatch have a coaming around the perimeter, whereas the forward and side storage hatches don't. Reason is that the storage hatches will have a drop in box, which will have the coaming built in.
Image

Image

Now, we install the deck pieces on each side of the livewell.
Image

Even get a few wires run.
Image

At some point along the line, we have to build a couple drop in boxes.
Image

Can't forget the hole for the recessed pedal tray.
Image

All that's left is to carpet the rig, and install all of the accessories. We'll skip to finished pics at this point.
Hatches have gas springs holding the lids open.
Image

Red LEDs on the deck, and white LEDs in the hatches.
Image

On pickup day.
Image

Image

As you can see, the boat is pretty accessory heavy. Boat has a 101 Fortrex on the bow, 80 pound Traxxis on the transom, 2 Humminbird 1198s, Humminbird 360 view, 6 AGM batteries, 2 Minn Kota 345 chargers, 2 Minn Kota Deckhand 40 anchor winches, and quite a bit more.

Can't forget the FishOn Fabrications recessed pedal tray.

A few 8'6" rods, a handful of 8s and a couple in the 7.5' range. The taper of the hull of the boat is the limiting factor on length. Total of 11 rods.

That and the large livewell was the reason we went with a 1756. Owner originally wanted a 1652, but it just wasn't possible to fit a 37+ gallon livewell and an 8.5' rod locker in a 1652 without changing the layout in a way that wouldn't have suited him.

There's one in there somewhere.... Most used piece of equipment I own, by far.
That boat was in the shop for two months (boat was delivered on the wrong trailer, and it took nearly that long for the factory to deliver the right one), so in working on other jobs for those two months, the shop ended up being rearranged a time or two, and a lot of my equipment seems to not have made it into the background of any shots.

nice... is it CNC or armstrong?

What color are you going with?

I've got a 1756 Lowe that got dropped off yesterday that's getting a very similar layout to the G3 in this thread, but it's an all black hull (gloss black lower, textured black gunwale cap and interior). They've got tan carpet going in it as well.

It'll probably be 4 weeks or so before I get a write up published, so be on the lookout for a posting about this time next month, but I'm anticipating the color combo is going to really look sharp!
