1993 Sea Nymph 16 ft vee

After staring at the floor for several weeks I decided to cut out the aisle in the middle bench before framing anything so I riveted a piece of angle across the top just in case. Turns out it has angle inside the bottom of the bench so when I took off my piece it didn't budge. This is gonna make everything so much easier.

It was hot today but it was fun framing this little bit. My phone pics seem to be black and white for some reason.

At least you're Making progress. It is hot. But it's just central NC weather! Have you checked out CL lately? Some tin boat groupie has some big vhull boats. Raleigh, and eastern NC. Looks like good prices.

I must have missed em but they sound nice. One scammer keeps listing Lunds for oddball prices like $1337 so I google it and take it down in all the other cities he puts it.

The location is Dunn. Link for one of the ads: https://raleigh.craigslist.org/boa/d/al ... 24828.html
It looks like there's at least two on there. Didn't mean to hijack, just thought you'd like checking em out.

Framing this floor took half as long as the other boat and I made sure I could lay down in it just in case I need a nap or wanna spend the night on the water.

Rod storage going in. The 3 on the far right will stop at the front bench which is good for 7 feet. I couldn't think of a good way to do it until I saw outonthwater's pics. Figuring out how to do these things is half the fun.

Anyone leave their rods in the boat year round? Wondering if winter will affect the reels.

Awesome job! I'm making no progress coming home in a thunderstorm EVERY night...tonight will finally be dry so I've got my fingers crossed!

As far as the reels I wouldn't unless they're covered. Even then, in the colder seasons when you'll get condensation and possibly frost, I'd bring them in. Temperature extremes are probably worse than the moisture. If you do go that route I'd make sure to tear them down to clean/lubricate them at least once a year.

It rained here for about two weeks straight so I was happy to get back out there. The styrofoam in the front bench was a mess to cut out. I notched one end of a piece of pipe and attached it to the drill and it went through it in no time. Seven tubes allow for 8 ft rods which is all I need.

I decided to make a livewell out of acm since I can't find the right size so I bought this Crestliner/Flow Rite parts kit from Great Lakes Skipper for $49.95 which looks like a great price but they nail you on shipping. Not at all sure how to fit everything together but it appears to be enough for two livewells minus a pump. Or would it need two pumps?

Started framing for the livewell today. Boy it was hot and sticky out there. I figured the weight would be centered if it's behind the bench and it would also extend the deck. Everything is vertical despite the bad pic. The bottom will get two layers and the front piece will be against the bench.

The weather finally calmed down and I got a little done. The livewell is 39 x 10 x 11 = 18 gal.
