    I know, Im just never happy, it had some cracked welds and the nose was cracked. I am planning on selling her next winter to buy a bigger boat. I just want it done right.

    Got the console weld all finished up and ground down. Just need to cut and rivet the top, side, and back, then it will be complete.

    Painted it up so I can get everything bolted in and set up right, will be doing all the wiring to the switches tomorrow, so the motor, nav lights will all be fully functional.

    Re: My Bass Tracker bowfishing boat build

    I never updated this, but the boat was finished in October, but I tore it back apart to redo everything this winter to fix a lot of the cracked aluminum, get rid of all the wood and carpet. The entire boat will be all aluminum, and interior coated with anti-skid

    Boat should be about 150-200 pounds lighter when I am finished

    When it was finished



    After a lot of cutting, scrubbing and cleaning





    Welding structural supports in the nose



    Filling in 3 old livewell inlets and outlets







    Welding in the front nose plate
