    Hi 66Tbird23,

    I'd like to know how it came you got to this '66Tbird23' :D

    My two bits -
    Clean the boat on the inside, get a spot to sit and live yourself into the situations you would experience when on the water. Take notes.

    After about a week or so you will begin to form an idea of what is needed and what not. Every ones needs are different.

    Look at how others rigged their boats out, you can steal some very nice ideas off some.

    Remember to put a rubbish bin on the list and to consider the wife in decisions. You're doing it right when she starts buying things for the boat :D

    All my wife ever would buy for my boat is an empty roll on trash dumpster, for the whole boat to fit in :mad:

    Aaah, ok, so you're doing it wrong :D Google for it, there was an article on how to get your wife to turn. Real female thinking (and bloody tough to do) but aparently it works :rolleyes:
