Gotcha on the transom and corner bracket detailing.  Can't think of how you'd have any problems with that. 

I'm sure your fit up will work out well.  I was pretty excited when I got that all glued up.

Do you have your 2x on your transom.  I didn't see it on the pic?

I will get my stringers in and see what things look like.

I do not have a 2x on my transom.  Picture does not show it well but I built my transom different than the book.
I built the transom with 2 full size layers of 1/2 plywood instead of just the lower doubler; then added 2 more layers of 1/2 plywood for the motor bracket area (where the 2x would have went) and I made these pieces 12 inches wide. 
The motor bracket is still 2" thick, just 4 layers of 1/2 plywood. 
I made my corner braces out of 1" plywood (2 - 1/2 pieces) instead of just 1/2".
Since I plan to exceed the motor weight (150hp and 25hp kicker) I built the transom stronger than spec.

Haha sounds horrible Dave!  I didn't think I was going to get the boat out if the shed until July!

Anthony-it's not copyrighted, so go for it.  I think Renn originally put it on the forum here a few years ago.

At least you had a mild winter Chris.   We got hammered down here in Maryland.     6 Jan = 2.3 inches.    then right after that on 21 Jan we got 2.6 inches.      the 26th added another inch and on 1 FEb we got 0.4 inches.   (that was really icy snow).  finally on the 14th of Feb we got 2.6 inches more

just an incredible winter to suffer through.

Thanks Jim I actually saw that sketch you had and printed it put a few months ago. I'll have to make some changes but overall design will be similar.

Chris I sketched out all the console dimensions before I sold the boat if you need them.

Thanks guys.  The shelves are roughly 7 1/2".  I made them wider to take the flush mount rod holders.  The fuel tank is going in the well.  It's a 30" tank, will be covered by center console and seat in front of console.  I'll probably build the console pretty similar to Jim Shula's.

It is my belief that the original intent on these pieces were in open skiffs non decked to keep the sides from flexing excessively.  The boat needed some bracing and Renn had you install these and lap then to one on the bottom that went to the stringer and ended there.      I used two by fours on edge and just glued them in without glassing them.   Over time we ended up screwing big hook eyes to them to secure stuff to.  No issue except a little rust stains.    But mostly, guys now build decks.  I cant see them offering much utility with a decked boat, as the decks are screwed into tabs glued to the whole hull side.  Id use them if you had a purpose, like to attach a  rod holder to, or for any reason really.    That big forward locker ties up everything nicely forward, the drywell aft, and station six on any boats with houses.   I think those framing pieces are obsolete for most of us.   But if you put them in, any wood will do.  My junk new growth sapwood home depot two bys (probably kiln dried) didn’t even crack over 12 years.   Its just too much of a glued up surface.  I did use fir two bys though.  I learned my lesson on the hemp crap building a diablo in 1986.  That cracked with a 25 Hp lol
