No direct experience, but from what I have read that pink foam is not gas resistant. It will turn into a pink goo under your floor if you spill some gas in the bilge and it get washed into contact with it.
I have experienced the pink foam not being gas resistant, But in order for it to turn to goo it would have to be submerged it gas. I personal is currently using the pink foam. Honest is there ay foam ou there that is gas resistant. My experience and 2cents
There is foam that resists gas, I think it's polyethylene? I'm thinking it's the stuff that those swimming pool noodles are made of. I had bought a sheet of it for a jon boat flooring project but sold the boat instead. #-o I had to go to a speciality foam place I found online. I think you could even get different densities to support more or less weight. Try looking up foam sheet online or even in local phone book.

Nice boat...WICKED AWESOME MOTOR! (ya...Massachusetts). Anyway, I'm curious to understand all the hubub over sound proofing/insulation? I've never noticed excessive noise on my prior jon boat, and I'm not recording my debut album on the lake...so what's the concern? :?

I used to fish with a buddy that had a bad habit of dropping things in the boat at the worst times. You pull up to a killer cove and he drops his pliers. #-o

It will have four storage compartments and fishing seat up on front deck. A rod locker that will hold a 7' rod easily. A seat pedistal down low on the floor for use while powering :lol: across the lake. And a deck across the back bench with access to gas tank and battery. Up against the front deck there will be a box for battery and some storage and across from the rod locker there will be a livewell of some kind ( still figuring this out). Question is when will I get to go fishin!!!

Thanks for checking it out

The progress on this one really makes me want to redo mine just because I have some new ideas. I think for now I'll just fish out of it and prepare for the next one. A 1966 G3 w/90 hrs Yammi. I've got all kinds of ideas for that one. Just need to save for a few more years before I can have her!

Great job on the boat so far!

Are you guys saving your pennies to reprop after adding all of this decking and framing? :shock:

You may find that you need to drop an inch or two in pitch to get back some performance.

What performance? It's only got an 8 horse on it now. The sticker says I can go up to a 25 horse so once all the mods are done I will decide if I need to go with more horsepower or just live with what I have.

I guess that I was just typing out loud.

I see a lot of pics of a lot of weight being added to boats on here with little mention of what issues may arrive after the fact.

With an 8 horse you probably weren't setting any water speed records to begin with, which may make it even worse in your particular case. Just throwing it out there.

Shoot I'm hoping it at the least helps the boat get on plain. Right now I go down the lake with the nose in the air.
