    Looks Good. Are you planning to run lights under the deck?

    Yep 6, 50 watt LED lights and 2 - 31 series battery without a gen set. We tested the lights, we get 9.5 hours of lighting on a full charge and I'm way too old to shoot all night anymore. Installing the top rail after work and the steps. More pictures tomorrow.

    Water temp dropped 15 degrees in the past 2 weeks and more cold coming. Starts later up here and on the rivers. I still need about a week.

    Looking good. I am not a big rail fan but on occasion I wish I had one. Swimming after your boat in the middle of the night isn't my favorite thing to do.

    I am very envious of your ability to weld Aluminum. I have never done it and really want to buy the equipment and start.

    Not Tig. I have a really good spool gun, mig. Rail is 29 inches. I don't like swimming and I also am a little unsteady on my feet while drinking.

    Truth be told, we hunt with a older guy that has fallen overboard several times and I don't want him or anyone else getting hurt.
