Second Project Lund Rebuild

Post by snowboardinmn » 23 Mar 2009, 17:04

well last spring i restored a little blue boat. Well on craigslist i found a guy willing to trade my boat for his because he was selling his truck. I thought it was a up trade for me because this boat is quite a bit bigger and more stable. I'm planning to build up a back deck, re carpet, add a bow trolling motor (don't know what pound thrust looking for your guys help there) and two ped seats. Probably quite a few more things too easy to get carried away ha.


Well yesterday i just gutted it out and did a little framing on the back deck.

Since you are doing such a good job with the mods,I won't give you a hard time about it being a glass boat. :LOL22:

Looks like a fun project. It also looks like a nice wide beam should be pretty stable. Nice looking Johnson on the back as well.
Is that a 40hp? You probably all ready saw this boat mod but another guy on here did a boat that looks pretty similar. https://tinboats.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6354. Good luck keep the pics coming!!

well i got forgot about the live well when i was framing up the back deck. So i had to modify what i already did. Most of the framing is done now though still a few cross bars and other things. Its starting to look better now though i think. Sorry about the picture they were taken at night ill put new one on in the daylight.
All the pictures below are just some different views of the back deck. Tell me what you guys think.


ps.. by the way im not using two different seats the brown one is just one i had laying around for the picture.

I am liking the idea! One question though: when you are fishing side to side will one of your feet be up higher than the other? Just a thought but if it won't make your deck too high maybe you should make your cooler/ livewell flush. You could attach a strap or handle to the top so it would still be easy to open.

yes your feet could be at different levels but there is a little more room than you think back there. and it will be mostly side to side fishing. But im not to concerned about the back deck because ill always but up in the front :D :D :D :D :D
