Great looking boat there!
You'll fly with the 115. I have an old suzuki 115 on my 24' wheelhouse Jumbo and hit 31 knots with full tank of fuel and 4 guys aboard.

If I could go back, I'd have listened to Nolan and B&B and built faster and been fishing 2 or 3 years ago.

Heck, if I make the PH taller it will look like the Trump tower. I'm 6'4" and need some head room so I don't brain myself every time I go through the door Huh?

Nice looking build so far! Looks to me like you already have a trailer, LOL! Keep up the momentum and before you know it, you will be enjoying sweet salt air!

Higher pilot house.  It's high enough but now I want over head rods in PH.     We have 19 rod holders and its not enough.     Offshore we take spinning hear for dolphin on pots, deep drop reels, 30s and 50s.     Plus the gaff lives in one etc.

the flip went great this morning, now I have lots of work.  I used a tractor and winch (pulley rigged in a tree)  all the scrap carpet and padding I could find.  We had a control roll, used the tractor to pull/lift the boat and the winch/pulley for the decent.  Then re rigged the tractor to help on the decent to provide some lift.  Used the tractor to lift the rear and block it up.  Used the tractor to lift the front and push the trailer under the boat.
My sweet wife made the tolman apple pie.  fuel tank will require I raise the cabin floor about 1".  Now I have to let saw dust fly, get busy with epoxy/fiberglass work. 
Off to the lumber store to get some more doug fir grade #1.  I have all my marine plywood and such.
Price trailers so far from EZ-loader, Load Rite, Venture.  EZ-loader has the best fit with a 6,200 lb capacity, the others have a 8,000 lb capacity.  The problem I am running into is lighter rated trailers are too short.  A disadvantage going 27', A 24' boat has many more trailer options.
All the trailers are torsion axle and aluminum. The aluminum EZ-loader was $100 cheaper than the galvanized one.  All the prices are right at $5,900 +/- $100.  With disc brakes on both axles.
The dealer who sells mercury also has EZ loader, talking to them on the phone I can combine a motor/trailer purchase and get a better deal.  Local which is a plus.  (see about that in a few months).
Pretty much decided I will go with a 150hp merc. 4 stroke.

 Hands down: fishdeck drains to aft sump. Our fishdeck is a sealed void (actually able to access some of it from O-ring sealed plugs in the sump) and would have been Easy-Peezy putting drains in each 4 corners of the fishdeck with gravity lines running to sump. As it is we sponge the deck FAR too much and leaving it at anchor /dock leaves 3-5g of rain water on deck before it drains thru the transom drainplugs. The idea of Renn's for the sump is great it's just that you need to beable to actually drain into it. We have all the lines/wires there for a bilgepump but haven't bothered putting in a pump because there isn't any water that gets there. B & B

I'm almost at the flip stage with my hull. I am actually ahead of my build schedule at this point and looking forward to the rest of the build. I was thinking about how to finish out the storage on the fish deck and such so I have been looking at other's boats and their ideas for storage not only on the fish deck, but in the wheel house and the cuddly. There is never enough storage on a boat, and it seems that with all of the crap you accumulate it is hard to find that one item you need right now. I am concerned also with a sanitary way to store scents. They inevitably get left open in the heat of the moment and then you have a mess. Rod storage is also important, I've fished with guides who had great Rod storage, allowing us to target multiple species in one trip without the danger of broken Rod tips and such. My present welded aluminum boat has crappy Rod storage, in fact I made a run last week and found one of my rods was missing a tip.
In any event what would you do different if you were back in the finishing out stage?

This guy bought a kit from Grady a few years ago. He did some neat things for storage and his overall plan looks real nice. I was following his build when he started, but lost track when my original build plans got derailed.
Funny thing is, I'm building now and he has been stalled. Life gets in the way sometimes and you just have to weather the storm before you can get back on track!
