Looks good, I'm sure it will be a great fishing platform. I have an I-pilot motor too and love it. Two tips for running in rough water though: drop the height adjustment down to the base and tighten it otherwise the motor can self deploy and rip itself right off the bow before heading back for the outboard. There was a warning sticker to do that and I was told another customer had just done that when I picked up my boat. I bought a second height adjustment clamp and set that at the optimal height for the conditions and then move the first one up and down to secure the motor on runs. I would also suggest a brace between the shaft and the deck so the head of the motor doesn't get thrown around as much. I went with the combo beverage and rod holder and am very happy with that:
