Need to fill livewell holes in hull

If you plan on keeping the boat for a while I would just weld them up the next guy can cut his own holes if he doesn't like it. It's not worth risking water coming in the boat while you're on a great fishing trip in my opinion Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk Agree , this is what I will be doin...

1984 16' Bass Attacker Complete Rebuild

Not sure about the battery box, but looking at the bow I would go with the more simplistic "V" shape and probably lay them in there at a 45 degree-ish angle. Just my preference, I think the deck would look like it flows to the bow a little better, it wouldn't be so abrupt. I think your right, I’m d...
