    Wow.. that's one hell of a boat. I love the custom touches you put into it. Would like to see the fwd back rests and interior pics.

    Did you coat your tank with anything or foam it in? It looks like you went with a naked tank bolted in. Same idea I have but is a great debate on here.

    Ceres to a Miller lite. Lite makes the post so much better. Thank you for sharing.

      The tank was epoxy coated and foamed. We coated the sides and bottom before install and the top after it was set in. I also glassed the deck, console and leaning post. I hate caulk joints and screws.

          I'm so glad you posted this project.

          I had seen a picture of this mako with the tuna door on the side somewhere and thought "Man I want one of those..."

          I knew I hadn't seen it on this site as I'm pretty sure I'd been through all of the 25 and 261 threads.

          You have done a fantastic job.

          I'd love to hear what you would do different on the tuna door if you had to do it again.

            The door is spot on. I would move it to the stern about 16 to 20 inches, but when we decided to do the door we were leaving the rear boxes. Now that those boxes are gone it could be pushed back in the design.
