    Its been a few months since I pulled the trigger, but it looks like construction will commence in a few weeks. Hope to be done in time to fish the Homer king salmon derby. Picked out interior colors. Went with the Furuno TZ touch electronics package. Going with a beefed up shore power system and bigger inverter than I previously designed. Added a 4th battery. Also adding a microwave as well. Still trying to figure out how I will configure the electra dyne puller and davit. Going to be a long 5-6 months.

    If you need some install pictures or have any questions on the hauler just let me know. Good luck with the new build.

    Its going to be a dandy, BW build some beautiful boats.
    I do have a question, it appears as if the bulkheads are welded to the bottom first and then the stringers are fitted "in between" the bulkheads.
    Not questioning BW's design, just wondering if if that is typical or maybe the its just a reflection in the pic that makes it look that way?
    Other than jealous, just curious...

    Akgramps, I do believe you are correct in the build process.

    Saw your build Friday when I dropped my boat off at BW to store it for the winter. My build started last October, I know how you are feeling right now. Congrats!

    Holy Cow that's a big fuel tank! Right around 260 gallons, I'll have capacity to make the run to Old Harbor ~ beware Jeff Peterson, I'm coming for your king salmon

    I thought about insulated. The guy in the picture is standing in the fish box, cant remember the exact specs but its one of the bigger ones they have done.
