Hull number one.  Working on how we are going to lay things out in this boat.  This will be the only Mojito without a liner.  The beam on this boat came out to 6' 11"!  Notice how much freeboard there is.

looking good.  Personally after owning a boats with liners and now owning a Panga without I really like how easy it is to clean up a non-liner boat.   Just hit it with a hose a deck brush, soap and rinse, that's it!   I also like not having to worry about one of my drunk friends dinging up my gel coat  Grin

O.SEA.D thanks for all your input and comments. 
What does everyone think about the finished gel caps in the rear corners and the front?
Or would you prefer to have those areas below the deck finished with splatter gel coat to match the interior?
Look forward to all your comments.

I like them and say at least let them be an option. You can mount rod holders on the back ones and I'm sure of the size of the front but you ca put the gas tank up front and out of the way under it. Plus it always nice to have a little storage out of the wind up there.

Great looking boat! 

I'm excited to see the finished product of your boats and really looking forward to the 22 ft version.

I would say have 2 options..
1. finished gel cap that wrapped the entire gunnel
2. finished gel cap in just the quarters and bow

I like the finished stern cap and I would also recommend molding in a splash well.   My panga.com boat has a finished cap in the back with a splash well and there's been many times offshore slow trolling where a wave has come over the transom and the splash welll really did it's job keeping the water out of the boat.   Also coming off plane if you kill the throttle to quickly it keeps the following wave out of the boat.

As far as the front I would say just leave it open.   Considering it's a non liner boat I don't think it looks right with separate front and back caps.  To me it seems disjointed not having the cap extend all the way around.    I'd bet it would look good with just the back cap with a small splash well then leave the bow open with maybe a small anchor locker molded into the bow. 

Splatter gelcoat would look good along with a painted non-skid floor  Wink

By no means am I expert but I stayed at a Holiday in Express once  Grin

Thanks for all the comments.
There will be a splash well, it just didn't make it into the pictures.
as for a full transom and a bracket.... possible, will know more once we finish the first boat and get to do some testing.
