great looking boat, but one concern. if that is carpet on those bunks, TAKE IT OFF! I've seen quite a few bare aluminum hulls develop bad pitting corrosion because of salt drying to the hull under the carpeted bunks. not trying to pee on your parade, just a word of advice.

What he said can happen. My Sea Ark had a couple small spots when I got it. I saw another one the other day that had major corrosion where it had been sitting on Carpeted bunks.

So true, I have welded most all of my life and have seen many aluminum boats and pontoons corroded from salt saturated carpet, either inside the boats or sitting on the runners with carpet. I removed all carpet, inside my boat and also replaced carpet runners with Teflon, ya just got ta be careful with the Teflon it will unload before ya want it too !
Very nice set up though, need some flounda guts in it now

I don't run submersible lights. These lights are 120 volt 100 watt LEDS 3000k (warm white) and I haven't taken the boat out yet just got it home last week and I had a problem with my truck but the water line on the side is about 5 inches where Long Beach Aluminum Boats ran it to make sure the right prop was on it.
