I have street signs I bought from the reycling facility near my house for the decking. Between the support beams I am putting in three hatches for storage and the livewell. Everything will be riveted except where the beams attach to the actual boat. I am bolting them down so I can remove the whole platform. This way I can fix any problems without the hassle of removing rivets.

I see the pics just fine. Since you cut a hole in the top of that bench I am guessing its going to be storage?
LEFT is right! The reel handle is properly oriented when it is on the left side.

So I attached the hinges,covers, added the side bracing and put the cooler in that will be my live well. I have the deck completed but I'm waiting for the rain to stop before taking more photos.

Really like your design! Very efficient use of the space and it looks sturdy. =D>

How thick is that decking material?

It's made from a traffic sign and is pretty thick. I'm guessing an 1/8" thick. The signs cost me $20 at the recycle facility and the bracing was $40 at a fabricator. all together it cost me a little over $80 to do this.
