Decided since I’m waiting on parts for the neighbors lawn tractor and I can work on the wife’s car tomorrow. I’m going to see if I can’t put some finishing touches on my boat. Mount new rod holders etc.
One thing I want to do is build some type of cover that shades the portable fuel tank. It’s going to be on a piece of plywood I painted which will be attached to the front of the rear bench. I’ve got plywood,aluminum,some aluminum angle etc. I want to build something that I can attach to the plywood and maybe also come off the front of the bench. A little bit taller than the fuel tank and be able to use it for a cut bait table, maybe add a drink holder.
I have the material but for some reason can’t wrap my head around an idea how to do this. It shouldn’t be hard . I just need a place to start.
If anyone has any ideas please share them with me. Or has anyone done something similar?
I’m trying to make everything I do to the boat look as good as possible but I’m not a carpenter. I can cut a board three times and it is still to short.
I can build if I have something to fallow but from scratch seems to be difficult for me. I’m more comfortable with a wrench in my hand and carburetors etc.
See what y’all can think of please. I’m going to see if I have a picture to post of what I’m talking about. If not I’ll have one this afternoon.
This is it on the plywood platform in the middle but since then it’s going to be on the port side closer to the gunnel.
