Bear with me as I start adding pictures of my boat build. It is a custom aluminum center console built by Jasper Marine in Gibsons, BC Canada. The model is an Orca-2. 20' long.

So, the hull is welded up. Jasper at Jasper Marine is a welding artist. The guy is absolutely amazing. Oh, and the pooch is Sky. She is such a sweetie.
It has been bottom painted, as I didn't want to have to do the primer part of that process. The center console / top is being done at the back of the boat (last pic). The diamond grid floor is being done next and the swim grid etc. Super excited and yes a bit nervous about the 135 HO. Like I have said in other posts, the Etec excites me, whereas the Mercs, Yams, and not quite so much the Suzukis I find boring... Looking forward to the awesome fuel economy, torque out the ying yang, and the engine in 'graphite' is just darned gorgeous. Plus in my case, the Merc dealer in this area sucks, the Yam and Suzuki dealer are a heck of a long ways away and inland. Fingers crossed
