GMC said:Hi all, First time poster, just want to say that I have been trolling the site and its great, full of great info.
Im looking into buying this boat and was wondering how far up you all would take the decking up? The seller told me that the bottom is 36" and the top is 56". From what I have read its looks like a good idea to just take it to the top of the seats, I would like to maybe go a couple inches below the top for the front deck and keep it level with the seats in the back deck. Leaving the middle with a open lower floor.Hope that makes sence. Here is a pic to get a look.

I have a ouachita 1432,1962 will post pics later ,but after readingober51 said:Great post and replies. I think we can make this the ultimate, "Should I deck this boat?" thread and add some pictures to illustrate.
