I believe in them .... when it's windy and/or a current are trying to spin your boat around, you'll really appreciate them.

What a good looking boat!  You've made a LOT of progress too!  Are your side windows going to be sliders, with screens?  Do you know what brand windows you'll be getting?

Good .... you'll appreciate the ability to open windows and get some ventilation.  I like Wynne, but haven't looked closely at Motion ... only enough to know they're fine.  The (very expensive) Cadillac option are Diamond Seaglaze ....

No .... maybe if you PM him he'll tell you.  Dan rounded up on quality on everything he did to build his beauty, so I'm sure that whatever they are, they're nice.

I used Wynn. Had a problem with the sliders being set up for a wall thickness thicker than I specified, so highly recommend talking to them on the phone to thoroughly understand your options on wall thickness. Very good customer service on the phone and otherwise.

The slider in front allows me to access my forward fenders/cleat from inside the cabin - in practice this is way more useful than I figured it would be.

Are you making all your own hatches?   Are the rectangular openings at the bolder?

Yes I am making my own hatches the square ones on the back deck are just easy remove as they will be in the floor of my battery compartment. The round ones will be topped with thin aluminum and be screwed and sealed on the deck. The round ones are just if I ever need to replace fuel lines so dont need to get into them much

Hooking up a few things before the floor goes down. Water pump for domestic water and wash down, blower for fuel tank compartment under deck and bladder water tank, 26 gallons.

Looking good! Any reason for the bladder vs a hard tank?
