After about 2 years of looking (and begging the wife) I've finally got my boat started. Hope to have delivery before end of Sept. Boat will reside in Houston, fishing Freeport to Beaumont, mostly Galveston Bay. The guys at ECC have been great (and patient) to deal with.

-Suzuki 90 w/ Atlas Micro Jackplate
-Simrad NSS9 EVO3 w/ shoot thru hull transducer
-Minn Kota I-pilot Terrova, offset mount. Removable 24V battery setup
-Bonefish Gray deck and hull, Black out package on all components (satin finish)
-Awl grip interiors, all buckets removed, rear center hatch for live well plumbed for O2.
-Storm Gray over black SeaDek on platforms, under gunnels, and cockpit floor (teak style)
-Custom Deluxe Ramlin Aluminum Trailer w/ Swing tongue & 2 speed winch
-Extra thick cushions, light gray with black outline
-Lean bar tubes on both platforms (in case of future needs)
-Rope wrapped steering wheel (Black and Gray)
-JL Audio speakers w/ Blue tooth
-Welded rod holders on platforms (2 rear/1 front)
-Removable rear backrest
-Upgraded Livorsi controls with tilt/trim setup (no black zip ties)
-Raycor Fuel water separator
-All switches inside glove box on rear bulkhead, w/ USB port
-Single flat step on poling platform

That's going to be a sweet looking ride. If you need a quick fix, come down and let's go out in my Vantage. Same color schemes...

Congrats bud! Sounds like a nice setup, cant wait to follow this one as I'm looking hard at the Fury as well. What made you decide against a tunnel & jack plate if you don't mind?

Had to edit to include the jack plate, it's a must. The tunnel seems like a good idea at times, but not really needed where I fish. Plus the budget of the boat and other options I'd rather have just kept it off the table.

Not much progress to report, but the hull, deck and hatches are done, should be getting infused later this week. Dorian delayed things but the guys at ECC are working over to catch back up. Hopefully more photos soon...

Nice looking design. Hope it lives up to all your dreams. Does your wife go for the line about how nice it is to get all these cheap fish?.....Mine neither.

Never fished one however always thought this was the best looking ECC out there. Always wondered why dont see more of these. Will certainly be on my short list when I am ready for another boat.

A few more of the current progress. Awl grip finish and most of the assembly for the hull is complete. The cap will be installed this week/early next and rigging started soon after. I thought the initial wait to get the build started would be worse, but I was wrong. It's so close and feels like I'm waiting for Christmas morning over and over again. It'll be well worth it though and I'll soon have it slimed.
