So i have been building this  boat, a 1973 Hondo, affectionately named “Pay Dirt”, for Seth Moore.
So i decided that i would do a build thread, to show the work that has been done.

The Hondo in the original configuration and gel scheme.

Seth and the Aquatic Karuption  crew, getting the boat off the trailer and flipped over, for work on the bottom.
Plan is to, sand and body work the bottom, fill all the holes in the transom and gel coat the bottom and sides.

Withe the boat flipped upside down, Seth and crew went to town, sanding and blueprinting the bottom of the Hondo.
The bottom was straightedged, measured, glassed the low spots, then Holes in the transom were filled with glass and prepped for gel coat.
 The bottom was sprayed with white gel coat, mixed with Duratec clear gel addative.

Seth got the boat over to the painter, so he could get the inside coated with gel and some color laid down and cleared.
He went with a gold, with heavy flake.

Nice project. Unique color and design. Looks great.  It’s awesome when someone can go through and do the whole deal! 
As usual, great write up on the project Hal. You do a great job with the pics and details. It’s nice to see some build threads.

It was time for me to get my hands dirty and do what i do best!
 
First things first, build a rail kit!

Started out by finding the keel centerline and transferring it to the inside of the hull.
 I like using a laser these days, over the old school way, of pulling a string line.

To find the center line of the keel, start by measuring the distance between the inner strakes and mark half the distance.
 Measure in several spots along the keel and make your marks.
Take a string line or a laser and strike a line along the keel.
It is easy to transfer to the inside, using a laser by setting it up behind the hull and passing the light, through the hole in the transom for the pump.

Cut and set my rails on the stringers.
I like to set my rails, 1/4” below the top of the stringers.
You can go lower if you want but i would keep it to no more than 1/2”.
The reason to set the rails below the top of stringers, is to keep them just below the round over, at the top. Otherwise it will look like there is a huge gap, between the rail and the stringer
If you are using prefabricated plates, you might have to adjust the rail height accordingly.
Use transfer punches in the block bolt holes and put the plate against them to mark the holes on the plate.
Design your shape and cut them or mill them out.
Make sure to measure the drive line, that you will be using and set the crank centerline jig, accordingly. Make sure to leave 1/4-1/2” , i like 3/8”, of end play, in the splined end of the drive line and the pump. Just bottom it out and pull out 1/4”-1/2”.

Seth was still waiting for his drive line to be delivered, so i dropped my engine in with my drive line. Wanted to see how every thing lined up.
Drive line angle looks good.
I wont buckle the plates down permanent, until i get Seths engine and drive line, incase there is any adjustment needed.

Thank you very much!

Cant take credit for the paint work.
Some one else did that.
Maybe Seth Moore will chime in with the painters credit.

I set the pump up temporarily and Fabricated a ride plate out of 1/4” 6061 aluminum plate.

The intake was previously machined and set for a setback, by D1 Performance.
The cradle was purchased from aftermarket.

The ride plate angle still needed to  be set, relative to the keel, but shims or spacers need to be fabed up yet.

Got to work on the seat bench.
Cut and fitted the frame rails and mounting brackets.
Drilled and taped the holes to bolt it all together.

Cut the top late to size and fitted it to the frame.

Went to work on designing an inner transom plate, that would act as a bracket, to carry the MSD, The fuel filter and the diverter pump.
I wanted to contain every thing with in the bilge area, as much as possible, and not screw any thing into the transom wood.
I drilled and cut all the holes for fittings and steering tube.

This is another really nice piece, from JEGGS!
It is adjustable and the inlet tubes are swivel.

Decided to revisit the seat bench.
I thought it would be cool to do something custom, with the Fwd/Reverse shifter.
Decided to mount it in the bench, between the seats, along with a couple of cup holders, for those frothy river sodas!
We cut a slot in the top plate, for the shifter, as well as two holes for the cup holders.
Fabricated a bracket, mounted underneath, to hold the shifter.
Had to fab up a bracket, mounted to the rear of the bench, to hold the cable in place.
All in all i think it turned out, pretty slick!

Installed the fuel fills.
Had to fabricate a filler ring, because of the shape of the fills and the black bezel we are using.

The whole bracket together, is a one off piece that i fabricated, my self.
The round barrel piece, that is bolted to it, that the cable passes through, is actually a piece, fabricated by Charles Mclardie, of MRS Performance.
It is a piece that i robed from the throttle pedal set up, that was meant to hold the cable in place.

The Trailer got finished.
It turned out awesome!
The frame was powder coated Black, with violet flake.
The fenders were painted by the same Painter that did the boat.
Bad ass!

Thanks, I know you fabricated the bracket,  it's the clamp/holder I was wondering about. Seems like it wouldn't be too hard to make, just wondering if they were available somewhere.

Yes that part was a cable clamp that was made to go with the custom throttle pedal.
Not available as a production piece from any store.
Yes i wouldn’t be  hard to make one.
It is just 1” aluminum round stock, with a hole for cable to pass through and a threaded hole in the top to bolt with and a threaded hole in the bottom for a set screw.
