    It was not a job recommended for a person that doesn’t have a can-do attitude.
    There’s no room here for quitters.
    Thanks for all the help from ondarvr, Scott Danforth, Mr Efficiency, and others.
    Right now I’m just letting my boat gel, but this winter I may get a little crazy with some fun gelcoat art work, and add a couple zingers to her.
    Thanks again to all.

    Not many people will work through the entire complicated project, good job.

    I am looking for a front running light for my boat 2008 Ranger Reata 2250ss
    In doing so you have posted pictures of my boat on some boat page.
    You show the original and my mock up, but not the final. Here are final pictures on the water

    How is your project going.
    You can follow me and my exploration of life on face book.

    Scott may be dealing with Dorian right now. Although he’s not in the projected path, it still affects most of FL.

    not on the water yet..... Im a bit of a perfectionist with the sub-systems..... currently re-running wiring and the old aluminum P-clamps are getting replaced slowly with stainless. about 30 hours of work to go prior to splashing.

    then there is the whole cuddy to re-finish
