Aluminum angle or wood to support raised deck

architectural angle works good for making your brackets.i made a couple vertical braces for mine because i added 2 large hatches in the center and so i needed to run a 1x4 c channel down the centerline.my forward deck sat on top of the benches.

Aluminum angle or wood to support raised deck

i did my last boat with 2" angle,however,i flipped the angle the other way and used structural,not architectural angle and 5/16"rivets.never had a single one fail.my thinking was downward pressure on the angle to push against the bench from the bottom,not pulling away from it from the top.

out of curiosity,i looked up the specs for your boat.rated for a 40,1300 weight cap and 900 lbs of people rating for your boat.i think you may be overthinking the weight of the motor over a 35,but that's just my opinion.ultimately,your boat,your decision.this is a 40 on a 14.5 ft. boat.3 group 31 ba...
