Here are a few photos of the Duracraft 1542 project my brother and I started. We removed the middle seat and added aluminum decks, floor and sides. Last weekend was the first launch. The one thing I was concerned about was stability, but it wasn't a problem. When my 5 year old and I stood on the bow, I was able to stand with my feet on the gunwales with no worries of tipping. I doubt two adults could to do this though. A friend following in his boat with a gps clocked it at about 24 mph. Plenty fast enough for me. Currently, I am working on an aluminum and fiberglass tiller extension for the motor.

All the panels are aluminum plate purchased from a salvage yard.
Thanks. I have more photos on my photobucket account https://s425.photobucket.com/albums/pp336/kurtloup/zr7cat wrote:Wow, thats a very nice job. Looks great. Very clean looking. Do you have some photos of the process.
