Post by jsoif21 » 23 Apr 2012, 12:31

hey guys bought this lowe 1436 from a local dealer in mass this winter and found this site a little bit after and decided to build my boat up like some of the boats on this site. Started with a few ideas and came up with a plan on what i wanted to do. So far this is what i have for the front deck, I will update with pictures as soon as possible. this week the boat is getting wired up for the trolling motor, fish finder, running lights and for the live well pump. fun project its going to be nice when its all done with my powerdrive v2 and a little 5hp motor. Will update with pictures as the boat progresses, thanks guys.

have not finished it yet, it is being wired up this week for the trolling motor, fish finder, live well and running lights. Hydroturf is on its way from the company and should be in next week. after that the boat will be all set to go for now, eventually going to build the back deck up a little when i get enough money and the right gas engine.

Do you have any additional photos of the front deck? I am interested in you frame support for the deck. I really like your design for the offset deck.

This is really the only picture i have of the frame, it it through bolted in the back and in the front i used self tapping screws. The middle is supported with 2x4's and the outside of the frame i used a 2x4 on its side and scribed it in around the aluminum braces. Hope this helps you out if you got anymore questions let me know

Thanks for the photo of your front deck framing. Do you have any other photos? Particularly of your trolling motor mounting?

jsoif, the boat is looking good! I have one question. I'm interested in using the hydroturf on my mod later this year. But everyone I have seen using it has left the edges of their ply exposed. Do you think it would be possible to get a clean look like carpet if you were to wrap the hydroturf over the edges?

thanks everyone and as far as wrapping the edges of the plywood it can be done but it would be very hard and i think it wouldnt last.

Thanks for the reply, I was afraid of that. Love the way that hydroturf looks! Have you finished your mod?

The Front half will be finished this weekend, and the wiring will be all done by in the next week or two. The boat is an on going project though im waiting for more funds so i can buy a gas motor and then i will build a rear casting deck and hydro turf that too.
