It seems like forever in the research and design. Looking at countless numbers of other boats, new and used. Liking some hating some.
Ultimately not finding what I wanted made me design it my self.
The hull and basic design is by a Fijian company, The Fiberglass Shop. The boat is an Islander 28 Center Console.
Then I started to make changes and add things.
Like: Built in ice boxes, fresh and salt water washes, The seat in front of the console and the one behind the driver, padded coaming around the aft deck, a custom T-top and bow rail, toe slots and rod holders. The list goes on but I will post photos as the build continues.
I am also having a positive floatation alloy pod by Armstrong Nautical products, installed to mount the Suzuki 200 hp motor on.All said and done I should get it in a few weeks. Fingers are crossed.
These two shot are before the antifouling and the top rub rail.
Antifouling and rub rail being completed.
