Lowe 1436 + Trailer Mod (Page 2 Completed Pictures)

Finally got out on the water today! It was a perfect day to be out, very light wind, low 70s, and sunny. Just a great day. The boat handled great too. Very surprised on how stable it was seeing as the last time I was out on it was when nothing had been done on the boat. The front deck was much more ...

Lowe 1436 + Trailer Mod (Page 2 Completed Pictures)

Well, finally finished it all up. At least most of what I can see that needs to be done. Still need to get it out on the water and see how it all works out, but I think it'll be fine. Here are the finished pictures... https://i1200.photobucket.com/albums/bb331/rmzachar/th_IMG_20110528_114001.jpg htt...

Lowe 1436 + Trailer Mod

I like your build. I'm getting ready to tackle my boat and had a few questions for you. Where did you get your aluminum angle and how thick is it? I ask because I dont want to get something that is weak and will bend and fold up when some one stands on it. How do you plan on securing the plywood to...

Lowe 1436 + Trailer Mod

Ryan, I am planning to start a very similar project and i had a few questions for you on your modifications. 1. Did you just drill holes and rivet in the added supports you put in after removing the bench seat? If so what type of rivets and where could i get them? 2. Did you weld up the new support...

Lowe 1436 + Trailer Mod

Alright, some progress has been made and an update is due. Finally got around to heading up to Menard's and picking up the rest of my supplies. EXCEPT they had no marine carpet of any kind...at all. Only outdoor carpet that would have been somewhat usable was the looped stuff and had no rubber backi...

Lowe 1436 + Trailer Mod

Alright, small update. Have gotten a few things done over the past week, but not a whole lot. Progress is slow but steady, which is fine as the weather has been mostly terrible up here lately save for a few days. Anyways, seats are out and angle is starting to go in. Pretty much what will be going o...

Lowe 1436 + Trailer Mod

Alright, not much progress has been made up until today. Finally got a chance to cut out the bench seat! Now that it is out of the way, the real progress can happen. Next up will be cutting up the aluminum angle for the structure. Hoping my friend with his air powered rivet gun can make it out here,...

Aluminum Angle Question

Alright, thanks! I saw that part of the build and just wanted to make sure as I know I've seen other threads where people said they used it. I had planned on going with the 6063, thanks for confirming the decision guys

Aluminum Angle Question

Posted this in my build thread but haven't heard anything...As far as aluminum angle goes, should I be getting 6061 structural or 6063 architectural? I've seen people use both. I'm leaning towards 6063 as it would be easier to rivet together, but is 6061 with the added strength what I should be gett...
