Gonna start this all the way over.
1652 flat bottom
22" sides
75" beam

Building a raised deck 10" off gunnels, just high enough to fit 150 hps under. Running 8 hps lights.
Going to run a Briggs and Stratton 5hp air cooled outboard for the kicker.
Push-Pull steering.

When I got it


Stripping it out

I don't think you are going to want that much of an angle on your 150s. I have less than that and I wish mine were perpendicular to the water. Not knocking your build, but I think I might get more coverage is they mine were straight up and down.

^^^ what he said! Angle them up a little more! We ran ours basically perpendicular to the water for best coverage

Broke the troller shaft (welder didnt do too good of a job) So now im just using the 50" i had. Got the ballast box built, lights working, and rest of plywood on top of deck. All I need is some welding done on the transom and an outboard and ill be ready to go

Got the motor mounted yesterday and halway ran the cables and steering. I am running into a problem with my steering console so im probably just going to build one. Thinking of cutting the legs off the deck where the deck will sit flush and moving lights on top of the deck with some U brackets. I really need to get the boat blasted to get the old paint off that doesnt seem to want to come off at all. Then all I gotta do is wire up navigation lights :tu:
