25" four stroke

Original console will either be narrowed or replaced with a narrower one if I can find a decent one

Tank will be 3/16" aluminum, ~ 46 gallon from Speedy Tanks (Atlantic Welding)

Cockpit depth question; The specs for a 20SF say minimum 20". I get 19 1/4" near the factory deck drain. What dimension are others getting?

Would anyone with a 20' SF be willing to get the above cockpit depth dimension please? And please add whether you have raised your deck and if so, how much? Thank you

The strap is approx. 1 foot in front of the floor drains. 19-3/4" from deck surface, not gutter.

Tank should be here Monday. Console is ordered, C&M in Fla 38" square outside of flange. Transom is in, 2 1" thick pieces of Coosa. Deck is out. Stringers will be tied-in to transom, gutted, re-poured, and raised. Question; What are pros and cons of foam outside the stringers as shown? My 23' was not like that.

Nice you aint fooling around there.That looks like a sloppy foam job whom ever did it prior to your acquisition. Myself I would leave the foam out and just re foam the inside of the stringers...it's just more weight and another place for water to get trapped...I've seen where the the underside of the cap has been foamed in some boats. as long as you leave enough room for the getting to the wiring and hardware. Looking forward to your progress and thanks for loading your pictures straight.

Thanks Strick. I agree on those points to omit foam there. After a 10 hour round trip drive today I scored what will (I hope) become my leaning post/cooler/tackle center combo. I would never pay retail for a new one but I felt if I didn't fly and buy this morning I would miss this. I'll have pipe-work built to include a 3" riser. This puts the 2" cushion top at about 30". Sorry about the sideways pic.
