    Nice, looking forward to it. You're building it yourself? Welded? Coooool.

    I have a 16' lund I've had for 25 years. Almost all the rivets are still good, although I keep a tube of sikaflex on board for when one of the two problem rivets start leaking again. The lazy man's approach :)

    The Wife has plans for a bigger Aluminum down the road but wanted a decent little tinny for the time being . Should be a capable little boat .

    That’s a beautiful little aluminum you’re going to have. Looks very fishy already. That will do for quick little trips to check the prawn and crab traps even after you get your “bigger aluminum” down the road. Don’t ever get rid of it.

    Awesome looking unit. That will be a superb fishing platform.

    Yup, plan is to keep this one , an investment in precious metals,we have been looking at outboards and decided power will come in the form of a 60 hp command thrust Mercury.

    What are the rectangle vertical slots on the transom for?

    ^ guessing they are there for transducer mounts etc so you don’t have to drill through the transom
