In a turmoil about the seats. If I use the seats shown on the plans, I’ll only have 7 to 8” of leg room from the seat to the dash. The seat from frame #2 extends 23”. In John’s build( the one I’ve studied at length), he used back to back seats with plastic frames. So far, I have sent 2 emails to seat manufacturers with no replies. I was on the way to get a sheet of 3/4” ply to make some when my wife said I just needed to buy ready made ones. If I make them myself, I’ll have to modify the seats. I know my legs will have to go up under the dash but I am really worried about leg room getting into the seat. Likewise, the back seat, your knees will almost be hitting the motorwell. Thoughts welcomed. Thank you, Steve

I wouldn't expect to get a reply from any manufacturers.

I suggest to make mockups with cardboard and a hot glue gun. It works really good to get an idea if something is going to work or not. And they are easy to adjust. You can even staple the cardboard.

Steve,

These guys have lots of seats. www.greatlakesskipper.com/boat-seating- ... at-seating Study the pictures and write-ups closely, "shelf rash" and scuffs can be an issue.

Drain plugs??? The way the transom knee and the transom bolt up, you will have to have 2 drain plugs. One on either side of the knee. Is that what everybody does?

that's what I did. I didn't get the angle quite right so they are a little high on the inside, perhaps an inch above the bottom of the bilge. With hindsight I am not sure I would do them again (or perhaps I would do them properly next time..).

I have one drain plug on the port side of the keel. It works just fine. Any excess water on the other side of the keel can easily be sopped up with a towel if need be

I have been dreading this for a week. It wasn’t quiet at the lowest but almost. I have both plugs and got some 3M 5200 today. Got the tubes cut. Now, to flare the non-flared end. I saw a video today where someone had O-rings on each end of their tubes🤷‍♂️. We’ll see hopefully tomorrow. Did ya’ll anneal the tube?

Feels good to get a stressful part behind you, right?! Nothing like drilling holes in a boat hull

Still have not decided what to do with the center section of the deck. Paint or some kind of veneer. The side section I was going to paint. Steve

I'm not sure but it would be cool if it was at least a different color.

Veneering on planks is not really that hard but it does take some time and money, you will need to epoxy and varnish it as well.

I think it is the best look.

Steve, I did anneal my tubes before installing. I didn't use o-rings, just 4200 and crimping die from West Marine. If you want, I will lend it to you. I'll send it, if you pm me your address. I'll need it back when I do my splash well tubes.

Thanks so much for the offer Bryon but I also ordered that tool. I did anneal, did not use O-rings and I used the 3M 5200. Finished it up Monday afternoon. Thanks for ya’lls replies.
Some of the biggest hurdles, for me, was the transom, Chine bending(should have laminated-hindsight) and now this center section of the deck. I lost sleep on this. Instead of laminating individual planks, I liked the look of sheet veneer. I tried resawing on my band saw but even with a new resawing blade, I could not get a straight cut. I had originally planned on 1/8” planks but I had to go a different route.
This paper-backed veneer fought me the whole way. This Ga humidity is something else. It would curl up during the night. Had to get my brother come help. It turned out looking 99%.I will probably do a little strip down the seem. That was the 1%. I have one coat of epoxy on. The varnish came in yesterday. The little side pieces of the deck will be painted white.

For chine, are you saying in hindsight you would have done two layers laminated? Im close to doing my chines and have been considering it.

Your post on the interior seats is from last month so you may have already had a solution, but if you are looking at back to back seats, that is the setup in the stiletto, with the two boats being very similar its probably an easy swap.
