    Thank you!
    The radio plus a little Boss 500 watt amp is quite load, definitely enough to be heard over the motor. I doubt it's a true 500 watts but good enough for a duck boat.

    Here ya go.

    I have hunted out of a few home/hand built duck boats in my life and have been completely confident and happy, that is until I saw what you have accomplished!! Good job man, that is one awesome rig!!

    Light bar cover and fuel tank cover dry fitted into place. Both will be semi permanently attached in case the need to repair or replace ever arrises. Both have been glassed since this pic and will install them this evening or tomorrow.

    Grass rails done. Some nice 1" thick ash doing the honors. I'll come back and fillet around the seams this evening.

    Will finish out sanding where I faired everything out and she'll be ready to flip either tomorrow or Saturday to finish the bottom. After that, nothing left but paint and a few little things.

    Real nice, as always.
    Curious...what do you end up with for a final weight on these boats, do you know?

    Thanks!

    I'll post some when I get a chance.

    Thanks. Of course it's model dependent, but the original NFZ weighed 660 lbs. I'm guessing this one with the added length/ depth/options, thicker sides and floor will weigh around 800. Going to take the trailer today to get a weight on it and once the boat is done I'll get the weight on both to find out for sure.
