14' Sears Gamefisher Version 2

Great build thread, I look forward to seeing what it looks like when it's complete. I was wondering... on your floor joists, I see you have them supported in the middle with angled aluminum and on each end. On the ends of the joists, are they touching the rib as it meets the side walls or are they ...

14' Sears Gamefisher Version 2

I have this exact same boat, just a 1988 12' version...Thinking of doing something like this but just not sure if I'm skilled enough to work with aluminum, rivets, find materials, etc. In the end how much weight do you think you added to this boat? I guess a credit should be taken for removing the ...

14' Sears Gamefisher Version 2

Carpeting done on all the fixed panels. I did not do any hatches except the full rear hatch because I want to make sure they fit properly with the right amount of clearance. I am going to wait to carpet the hatches until I get the fixed panels installed. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180824/4dd...

14' Sears Gamefisher Version 2

The deck parts all layed out to keep the carpet gain oriented the same way. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180806/8355d2c8fa4c1be55efb6d87776e34b3.jpg All the pieces of carpet cut out, rolled and labeled. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180806/02471bcf3772d87dbe8b60f4751e5f3c.jpg The left ove...

Painted the bottom side of the hatches with a charcoal gray spray paint after a light sanding. Next is carpet!

3rd coat is complete and drying. Carpet is next.

Can I paint over the Helmsman Spar Varnish? I was thinking of painting the underside of the hatches with a gray paint to match the carpet. This way it would look a little better when a hatch is opened.

Second coat finished yesterday afternoon. Third coat was planned for today but the weather is not cooperating. If I do not get it done today I will have to wait until Friday.

14' Sears Gamefisher Version 2

I was hoping to be finished by now but work and weather got in the way. I am not complaining because the OT can fund more of the boat but the days off were mostly a washout. And because of those 2 factors the boat mod was put on the back burner because of other springtime maintenance around the hou...

14' Sears Gamefisher Version 2

Plywood cut. It was a long day. I was able to get everything cut from three sheets. And the floor is one piece. I used 15/32 RTD. By itself it is flimsy but once cut and supported by the framing it is great. I have a gallon of helmsman standing by with a natural bristle 4" brush. Maybe this weekend ...

My first build 14' Crestliner Deep V

I would take the framing out and wire wheel it. Prime and paint it with a quality coating. Put it back in and start foaming and decking. You could build any benches you would want.
