Looking good, you'll find that it's like quicksand, the more you do the more you'll sink deeper into the project!

We had a metric ton of mouse poo in the flooring and walls, so much so that we decided not to put the aluminum skin back on the belly.

After months of working on ours we finally took it out for its maiden voyage, that made all the headache and skinned knuckles worth it.

You're rolling around with no belly pan? I assume it's sealed similar to a pontoon. Any extra drag caused? Just curious if you've had any issues. I'm thinking of using a high grade plastic underneath to avoid corrosion and it's MUCH easier to work with.

That belly-pan is actually intended to PREVENT rodents and vermin. YOur's may not have been properly sealed, however. I recommend you reinstall it and seal it up.

Sealed or not, persistent rodents and vermin will get in the smallest of holes or chew thru to make a hole, after finding the mess we did on the under belly we decided to leave it off.
