Default Hand rail pictures

Want to share with you pictures of my little project boat. Fabed up, welded, primed and painted the bow rails today. Standing in the bow, it feels perfect, the hight seems just right. Cannot wait to check it out on the water. There is still much to do. Tonight I think I might start hanging the motor so I can begin to mull over how I am going to work out the steering and throttle.







I need some cool ideas for a name for this boat.

LOL...""Alloy Toy"". I like it, but still going to keep my options open. I was thinking of a aggressive name like "Blood Bath" or something to do with the moon like "Moon Shadow" but thats sounds a little wimpy...duhno yet.

The light bulbs are G.E. model 4416 spotlamps, 12V 30W.

Thanks for the name suggestions and compliments.

I was thinking, maybe I'll run a poll for the offered names and decide, that'd be cool.

It's about 10:30 pm my time and I'm through for tonight. I've got to start on the steering tomorrow but here are a few mockup pix that show basically what it will be like.

This first pic with me in the bow...the bow railing doesn't look so big now, eh?



Here's a few shots of the fan finally up on the stand.

Keep the names comming, I'm taking notes...:letsdrink

thats a hell of a nice rig.....but as someone thats spent way too many hours on the bow of a boat looking for football shaped depressions on the bottom. after your legs start getting tired from standing on the bow for an hour or two, and you goto lean on that rail, you're gonna hate that square tubing. It looks good and at this point theres noway i'd swap it out for round tubing..........BUT I would goto wal-mart and buy a few pool noodles, cut a slit down the side and slide it over the rail, then tape it up tight. good luck and welcome to the forum
