The recessed pedal on my boat is 2” from front panel.
Good luck. I have always liked bumble bee boats. had a 178 as my 2nd boat.
Thanks, I check with Duck River Marine here in Columbia. They said I could cut thru any braces. I need to keep the recessed tray tight in the cut. Once I screw the tray in place it should be fine. I hope they are right....lol I wouldn't want to glass in some braces from the hull to the deck. I hope to finish up tomorrow.
