We are going to sell the boat, so the future owner will be the one who rigs it. The boat could take either a 10" setback jackplate or one of those porta brackets

Got the first coat of Sterling on the outside of the boat... The color is Matterhorn White, it will look more "white" once we get another coat or two applied.

That warped bottom looks very much like the Abaco 23 except that the AB23 has more deadrise.

Joel,
Are you spraying the Sterling, or is that roll and tip?
Looks great either way!
