Brian, I am thinking about stepping up the swim platform right in that area. Two reasons, I want to support that tall transom area and two I measured out the bolt pattern and the lower mounting bolts fall right in line with the platform. Raising that area would give me room for the motor bolts inside a sealed hatch.

Very nice! That thing fits like a glove! What's the reason behind a raised motor mount on the curved transom like that? Swim platform closer to the water? I saw it on Ed's boat in AU too, but wasn't sure why you would do it that way. I would definitely like to know what I am missing here with that. Aft bulkhead looks tremendous though.

That'll work!

Json, yes the reason for lowering the swim platform is so its closer to the water line. Also I am putting a door in the rear bulkhead for easy access on and off the boat. It will look like the boat here in this pic

Got it, makes sense. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Love the curves that you add to everything ....really puts a pro touch on your boat.  It's going to be a great one!  The new transom support pieces look like they'll do the job too.

I didnt really plan it but I ended up with two flotation chambers on the back of the boat, one on each side of the engine. Also doing a little mock up on the front deck

Looking good!  Are you going to put drain holes and plugs into those transom 'flotation chambers' for when the boat's in storage?  Not required, but I do like to be able to drain all compartments.

Spray in bed liner in the anchor well. Just a little added protection.

Will you have a hatch to access the anchor locker?   Which windlass did You go with?

Good glassing plus that bed liner is a great idea for the anchor well :D
