One reason I want the elevated deck is for storage underneath. How do you think the material would work if you made cut outs and used removed material as hatches like you would with ply?Ok guys and gals. It was a long time getting on the water, but well worth it. The new casting deck works fantastic, and is solid as a rock. This is my first bass on the upgraded Alumacraft 1436. Topwater off a deep point! A great way to start the season.
I only lost about half a mile an hour on my top speed, but think that is due to my battery moving back to behind the front seat. I'm looking at adding a 60AH Lithium under the casting deck to regain that space that it now takes up in the center of the boat. The Minn Kota Edge 45 is great. I really prefer the hand control over the foot unit on this size rig.
If anyone wants to give this a shot I have well over half of the Epoxy I purchased for the project. I can make a deal!
Thanks for tuning in!
