I am making it as complicated as I can, and it is taking more time than I though...  but battery box is in, going with 2 6-volt house batteries under the rear helm.  Still have not mounted the shift assembly which  needs consideration for the cable routing.

If you have suggestions I am all ears.

Can't tell if it's glued in already or not, but if not, have you considered raising it off the deck ... toe room under it while using the rear helm?  I sure like the dual helm... nice!

It is glued in, the helm sticks out about 3 inches further than the battery box so I do have toe room.

Ah ... cool, and you won't be standing right up against the helm either.  Sounds like you've got plenty of room...

Building a mock up for the shifter, I will have to close in the bottom part.  The pic of the port side will hold the aux diesel tank and storage under a seat.

What a beautiful trailer!  You're going to like that.  Your battery boxes are in my favorite spot for them ... from a CG and usefulness perspective, battery wiring not too long ... weight near the aft house bulkhead ... acts as a seat or step up to the sheer on the port side.  Good on ya....

I have the same trailer... Watch the most forward brace, it will be very close to you keel. We had to add a beefed up brace and a keel roller to avoid the bolts. Let us know how it goes once you load you boat.

Thank you Chuck, been a little over 4 years since I bought my kit from you, I was hoping to do this a little faster but working full time and life gets in the way.

I am keeping an eye on your build and cant wait to see it finished. 

A shout out to Word Boats.
