Great job on the paint. As far as other mods, storage, depth finder, etc. look at some of the other mods and pick out ideas that will work for you. This site has some great projects done or being done and there are others out there. Keep us updated on your progress and Good Luck!

FishingBuds,
What type of fishing do you intend on doing out of it? For example, for a bass set-up, depending on the stability, I would probably deck out the front to the back of the front bench. I would also add a smaller deck in the back running from the transom to a little past the back bench. That would still give you some space to store gear off of the deck, i the middle. For a Cat set-up, I would probably leave it similar to the way it is, but maybe add some flooring to level the floor, a couple swivel seats, and some rod holders. For a combo of the two I would add the front decking and leave the rear of the boat open. I think your layout depends on what you intend on doing with it. Keep us posted.
Please don't dominate the rap, jack, if you've got nothing new to say.

I myself am a fan of the portable livewell that I have seen the guys use in the cartopper tournaments. Its a big white cooler with the aerator. It works well and you dont need to take it with you when you dont need it.

Or If you really want to get creative and build this in:

One key to keeping the fish alive is fresh water the cooler the better.
on most bass boats they pump fresh water in every 3 to 5 mins. that keeps the oxygen levels up so be sure if you build one that your pump has a long hose and wires so you ca hang it over the side to full the live well with fresh water as often as you can.
this is not as important in the spring or fall when water temps are below 60

Yep it'd be Bass fishen and crappie(live well mainly for crappie).

I'm concern about stability for me and my son already have to be careful when I stand up, so add in a deck for up front, concerns me. I'm 230pds and my son is 110pds.

90 percent of the weight in decking is the plywood. If you get the GP platinum plywood in 3/8 total sheet is 22 pounds or less.
