Nice rig, I have the same boat but its much older and it was rode hard. Curious why you did not just go straight to the ribs with the sheet of aluminum?

Hi Howard

I will try this again, my last posts didn't come up
The reason I did not attach the floor to ribs is because I wanted it as flat as possible.

Sum-kina I am thinking about adding a 12" extension to the front deck with a flip top lid for more storage, for now I'm going to take a break because I'm sick off working on it and just want to burn some fuel and catch some fish.

I put in some stuff called tex tread mixed in with the paint for the first coat for some traction, then painted over that after it dried with only paint for the second coat.

Hey guys
I paid $120 for a 4x8x1/8 sheet of aluminum and $42 for the 2x1x1/8 aluminum "C" channel(16'). This was alot cheaper than I thought it would be.
