I'm pretty happy with added storage space below the deck.

I wanted to retain the center bench for seating for another person while the boat is in motion and utilize the built-in live well for additional storage or for use as a live well.

Thank you and I did today Bass fishing. I took the week off from work since I had vacation time to burn. Deer hunting earlier this week and bass fishing from my tin today. Hunting and fishing in the same week is always a good thing!

Photos on the water from today. Got a real nice picture of the sunrise as I made my way to one of my favorite spots on the lake.

Hey David T, thanks for the nice words! I hope my post along with the many others gave you some good ideas. I know I have been looking at this site for about a year getting ideas and reading the comments before I broke down and became a member. Great ideas on this site and real nice guys from all over the country sharing their projects. Congrats on the 14 foot Jon Boat you are getting soon! Make sure when you start your project to post your photos/progress, I always enjoy seeing them! :D

Nice job bud, also love the colors of your football team, only I'm a gator fan, though I feel like with colors both Florida and Boise State are connected! lol.
