Here is the Hydroturf in. I have a few gaps but I think I will fix them this summer when it is warmer. Painting and hydroturf is HARD when it is this cold. We have been running my 150,000 BTU heater almost non stop and I've ran out of propane a few times.

Also, I am an idiot. The upload windows were popping up hidden elsewhere on my desktop. My bad!!!

Here are the benches in. I built them using aluminum square tubing, aluminum angle, .080 aluminum sheeting, stacked little green foam seat cushions from menards and then covered them in 500d cordura.

These were a pain in the butt!! Each one took me about two hours to do. I will tell you one thing, upholstery is not a talent of mine.

There are SUPER comfy though! These will be perfect for slow days to sit there, hang out, have breakfast annnnnnnndddd probably take a nap haha.

Hey everyone. Got most of the accessories mounted and motor back on. Still have to wire all of the electronics and grass the blind. I have 25+ lbs of raffia from Jstern for it. I mounted the light bar, front LED nav lights, Humminbird ram mount, transducer, led switch panel, new trailer winch, spare tire and more. The housing for the switch panel is .080 aluminum sheeting that I cut and bent then riveted from the outside with 5200.

Also, if you're still reading this far. We found out today that our dog Sawyer has an incurable cancer. We are trying to keep him comfortable for the next few weeks or so until his time. If you can, say a prayer that he goes in peace and happiness. Thanks! -Jason

Have you noticed any problems with the boat tilting to one side with the bench? Would love to put one in my 1652 but donít want to throw off the weight distribution.

Sorry it is taking me so long to respond. I can't reply from my phone anymore and my browser acts weird with this site.

The boat does tilt when we are all in it and not on shore. The solution I have is to lower the front of the blind about 3" so we can look straight out. I am also going to put stabilizer pole brackets on the bench side. That way when we get setup I can put the poles through the brackets, drive them into the mud and tighten down bolts on the brackets to keep us stable.

When we are running I have everyone sit on the front deck, on the decoy bags and on the bench to even out the weight.

When we are parked on the shore this obviously isn't a problem.
