Coffin box, it's what Gheenoe puts in the boats, they offer with a casting deck front arrangement. It will house my trolling battery. get the weight more centered, I fish alone most of the time. Living on the bank of the Elk River and having Monday-Thursday off, it will see lots of use.

Looks great!  As you know I've done the same general project.  I went the glassed-in-wood route versus glassing foam as a cost-saving measure.  Epoxy is about the most expensive thing in any boat.  I think you were very smart to put in the false floor; mine is configured with scuppers to allow water to drain down.  That ironically had the effect of keeping me fishing for a couple of outings before I realized I had worn a hole in the nose beaching the boat.  It's up on sawhorses right now waiting for me to glass on a new noseguard.

Is the center seat thing going to be a live bait well? 

Good looking boat.

Seat, inside will be battery, onboard charger, buss bars for electrical connections, will be wired for trolling connections front and rear.   mounted on back side will be charger plug, two LED switches (bilge and nav lights) trolling motor breaker.

This is looking amazing David.  Is that rhinoliner on the bottom?  Probably a good idea.  I've already patched the nose of mine once due to scraping it off on rocks.  That time I packed the inside with wetted-out glass to make a firmer backing and then did multiple layers of glass over the bottom of the nose before re-painting.

Line-X

This is the 2nd Gheenoe I've had it on, Mike has it on his Supreme and the Gheenoe dealer in Lynchburg has it applied to lots of boats for his customers.

It's not bullet proof but takes the wear off the fiberglass and is quieter.

It does a great job of protecting the gel coat.
It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly. ~Thoreau

My old man did something like this in the early 80's to get our first fishing vessel.  I remember him coming in of an evening smelling like resin.  10 years later and a couple surf boards in he taught me how to fix a, "stick" to get ready for the next swell.  That is a good looking boat… I hope you find as much pleasure in fishing it as you do fixing it.
