yep sure is... They took the old one off that bolted onto the outside of the transom and fabbed this new one that sits forward from the motor. It's really starting to take shape. I stopped by the shop yesterday and got a good look at the work so far. They are doing a sweet job in color matching and the glasswork is outstanding. The metal work is just awesome. I can't wait to see the finished product. Here is a pic of the tower/console that wil be secured to the floor and coffin box. The picture makes the tower/console look huge but in person it looks great.

Kevin, I was thinking you had to remove the gas tank and then put it back...It looked that way in my Gordon, so I went with some speakers in the back...Nice looking job, by the way....

I'm not quite sure how they did it... My tank is 18 gal. and it is not the orginal tank. I had to replace it not long ago so it could have been made different from the original. That may have something to do it. Also the speakers aren't that big so the magnets on the back may not need much clearance room. I'll try get more pics up this week.

well guys her she is... I would like to thank Adam and crew from Orange County Boatworks, the welding, rigging, and all glass work was outstanding. I also want to thank Kevin and the guys from East Cape Canoes for their part in making this build happen. I took her on a test ride right out of the shop and it ran like a dream.

Looks good! Looks like it would be fun to drive standing up there with a 50 strapped on the stern.

I hope to get my Waterman up to OCB one day to get some mods done. Good to hear they did a great job.
