            Build Update

            Evening to all,

            A couple more photos of recent progress and a few custom features like the anchor bulkhead, fish box and dry storage box in the bow. I also had the full width swim step added to haul more stuff (coolers, totes..). Thanks to all who have shared my enthusiasm during the build so far.

              Great looking boat! I'm sure you'll be happy with the finished product. I know I wouldn't trade my Wooldridge Sport for anything less than another Wooldridge!

                Those are beautiful boats! Just saw one in person at the boat shop a few weeks ago! I don't think you will be disappointed!

                  Evening folks,

                  Two more recent pictures, the rails are on, recessed area for custom headlights is cut out and welded, and the swim step is all finished up. Northway and Mtoutdoorsman, I couldn't agree more, they are great looking boats.

                    Howdy folks,

                    Things are starting to move along again on the build. Kind of like building a house, the framing comes together pretty quick, but things slow down a little when you get to the details. Glen sent some pictures of the center console today. I had it made a little wider than standard, and had a custom storage box made as part of the unit. There will be a seat mounted on the box for one person in front of the driver console. I also added the locking water tight door for additional dry storage in the console. The floor should go in and console mounted within the next week or so. Still looking at the first part of July for a completion date, can't wait

                        Another build pic,

                        Fuel tank is in, and carpet is being installed. Carpet will be installed on the side walls along the full length of the boat to help with noise reduction (standard feature on the SJ).

                          You might want them to reinforce the swim deck so you can lift up the back of the boat with a handyman jack under it. They might wonder why, but they haven't run our gray rivers and gotten stuck in the silt.

                            Thanks for your input Music Man. I'll mention it to Glen.

                              Evening folks,

                              I received a couple more photos of my SJ build. Carpet installation is complete, floor is laid in place, fish box and storage box locking doors are on. July is getting closer all the time.

                                Evening all,

                                I have a few more recent pictures to post. I picked Navy Blue with Silver and Black trim for the color. Vinyl is on the boat with the matching stripe on the center console. Center console should be installed and rigging completed next week. Everything is coming together right on schedule.
