Here it is, not as high as I would like it but I hope it will feel a little more stable. The bench seat was cut out into a U shape and then reinforced, the foam that was under that seat will be placed under the deck. Didn't take any pics of the frame below the deck but if anyone wants to see it I can. Will post more pics as I progress.

I have the same trailer for a jon boat that I own. It came missing several pieces, but when I finally got to the project (after two moves) and ordering or buying the missing pieces it works well. NOTE.... check all the pieces before you have it for 90 days. After 90 days you have to buy any missing pieces. I bought mine from a guy on ebay(came directly from the factory, but I paid him and not harbor freight directly) and reported missing pieces to him and he was going to have them sent to me. He stated they were on back order and we were in the process of moving and then I kept emailing and he quit responding to me. By that time I contacted Harbor Freight directly and found out about the 90 day thing.

Looking very good. Your project is coming along very quickly. I especially like what you did with the front deck. I was going to suggest something totally different, but I like what you came up with way better. I am jealous, I need a boat to work on.
