just to be thorough, i am posting a pic, one of the original pics in the ad that led me to this boat ( amazing how much better it already looks ), that shows the gauge holes in the rear of the cabin. i forgot about this pic when we were discussing the depth finder. i believe the depth finder was previously in the closed off hole just to port of the companionway.
just for giggles, here is the other pic that was in the ad.
pretty rough looking. most of my time has been spent working on the inside but what i have done on the outside has really made a difference. after the holidays, i will snap a recent exterior pic to post. wish i had taken better interior pics before i even started scraping paint, so i could look back, when i am done, and see just how far she has come.
