1984 16' Bass Attacker Complete Rebuild

Started out with a remnant sheet I found at a steal of .063” made a cardboard template of the rear hull and made a couple end pieces to match the bottom of the frames I made.

1984 16' Bass Attacker Complete Rebuild

Nice job on the recessed tray. It'll look really good with the bedliner. Thank you, can’t wait to get it all framed out and painted . I really liked the way the rear bulge area turned out with the bed liner so I’m hoping this will turn out the same. Almost tempted to do the whole boat in something ...

Some updates to share. Decided I didn’t really like the TM tray so I started over with a floor pan style I preferred and just wrapped it around using one long sheet and notching the aluminum to keep the continuous sheet and make it easily bent. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180204/9e6501a298d7a...
