    I do not know a lot about the gel-coat process, but couldn't you have filled the holes from the trolling motor before the new gel coat was done.

    yes, but it would cost....plus I liked how the Fortrex mounted on the rubber spacers...without them under TM mounting plate, the plate didn't sit very flat...the Bee has a bit of curve/twist where it mounts so I needed to install spacers anyway

    Looks like they did a great job on gel coat . Really sweet. Makes me jealous mine is white and really looks good but I like that new shine. Good work it will be worth it when done . You won't want to trade it then.

    Thanks...here are some recent pictures we have taken...after the new Attwood latches were installed...finished mounting the Fortrex, Hydrowave and newly painted bow control panel surround...waiting on the "Kick'n Bass deck mount" for mounting 998si in front of trolling motor tray...that way I can still utilize the un-used Ram mount for another future 700 series Humminbird unit or for mounting a GoPro camera...1 1/2" Ram mount with long extension could not handle the weight of the unit in really rough water...

    how do you like the work table??? Organization is all I can say...

    Hello
    Im new to the site and have just purchased a 2001 pro sport 290. The windshields look identical to the ones on your boat. Do you know of anyplace I can purchase replacement windshields. Thanks in advance.

    Great job! The boat looks great. Great decision to rehab the 2100. That boat will hang with any boat in rough water. Now...You can take the money you would have spent on the new boat, invest it, and in ten years, go buy a house. Or better yet, retire early and fish more.

    got one of the Boat Buckle rod straps installed today...it was pretty easy and should work much better than the old rubber bungie type.

    I have almost got her done....I need to really clean her up...still need to install new livewell bubbler, a few more LED lights in compartments...waiting on a few decals...cd player and speakers...seams the list goes on and on....new steering wheel too...

    I will go ahead and post a few teaser pics...but remember, it hasn't been waxed or polished fully yet...These are before seats were installed or cowl decals finshed
