Happy but not. 2 years ago i made this out of wood and not too thrilled with the outcome. Nothing is as I now realize I want. I am asking for everyone's input on this and how I should go this round.
I think aluminum will be my frame choice this time. My frustration is how to attach the top of the frame to the side of boat. I have a $20 rivet gun and did a decent job with what i needed to rivet previously, though my knowledge isn't enough to help me with this question. Below, look at the top of the frame, how was this done? Maybe not the exact way, but how would I do this on mine?
Here is the dimensions of my boat. Here are some ideas that I like
I'm thinking storage on left and right. Small cooler and possible livewell? Seat in center with batteries in middle, right in front of seat.
I like the idea of the switch panel in the middle, for when i am running the outboard and by myself and need to turn something on or off
another idea is batteries in center somewhere with a lid for access
The front compartment would be for small plastic lure storage, hooks, weights, etc.
Not sure if there is room or not since it is only a 12ft boat, but I like the idea of this on the side for rods, somehow
I know this is odd asking you guys to help me fill all my desires out of this boat and unable to see and point and talk but this is what a forum and cameras are for huh?!!
Lastly is a few pictures of my hollow hull with no deck in. These are obviously in the link up top, but easier to see this way
