That is one gorgeous boat! <3 What did you use to get the sides so clear? I saw earlier in the chain that it's Feast Watson, and it looks like you're spraying it...but still, It looks absolutely stunning! Well done for sure, I hope I can get my deck to look half as good.

John

Look closely at the plans. I believe you see that the clips are outboard at the motor well.
