alans lowe 14' vbottom

Post by leeaj85 » 21 Sep 2014, 15:19

boat had sat unused in the woods for the past 3 years with a fallen tree on it. took a few hours of pressure washing and scrubbing to get it fairly clean and back out on the water. I have always wanted to create flat floors to make it more usable and after stumbling upon this website gave me some ideas to finish off the boat.

made out of 4 2x4 and one sheet of 5/8 cdx plywood. I ripped the 2x4 down to 2x2 for the support and cardboard templates to cut out the plywood. two coat of the spar and then cheap outdoor carpet from the home depot. made the boat much more comfortable for fishing and glad i finally got around to doing this project.
