I had six holes in the boat that I needed to plug up. 2 on the bow and 4 on the transom. I figure the holes in the transom were from the previous owner bolting on a motor (3/8") and transducer (drilled out to 1/4"), but I have no idea what the holes in the bow were from. You can see I already placed stainless bolts (as a test fit) in the bow holes. I used a combo of 3M 5200 and stainless bolts to plug all of the holes.

I also got my LED light bar installed and some wiring tidied up. I have oznium led bolts in the corners under the gunnels.

Here's an overall shot of the boat as it sits right now.

Still on the list to do:
Cut the last section of floor
Battery wiring
Shorten fuel hose
Wire up the switch panel
Tidy up trailer tongue wire harness

I think tomorrow morning I'm going to take it to the boat ramp and leak test my fixes.
