very nice looking. How does that boat hold up with that short trailer? Also are you gonna use a tiller hanger extension because from the picture it looks like a fair distance?

That trailer worked out well for my Dad when he had the boat. When we brought the boat down here to southern Indiana from north west Indiana it road great. It is a little short on the back end but it does its job...As far as the handle on the motor goes, We put the front seat in that location so the guy in the back will have plenty of leg room on the back deck, When driving we will just take the seat pole out and then plug the seat into the base and we should be ok to reach back to the motor and my legs / feet will rest just fine on the middle floor deck. We havent had a chance to take the "Flat Bottom Girl" out for a test run to see how she will hold up with all 3 of us, our gear, and all the extra weight we added w/ the decks. I have a merc 9.9 and think it will push us just fine. I just hope we dont feel like we are balanceing on a basketball because it is only 36" wide. Other posts have said we will do fine others said its if'y. We will be takeing her to our yearly fishing trip up in North manchester, IN in 2 weeks so I will be sure to take more pic's as well as post how she did for all you guys who have a 1636...Thnanks again for all the feed back. I had a great time doing the mod w/ my 2 best buds

blueultra2,

We just screwed the decking down to the wood framing right through the deck and carpet with coated deck screws. U can see them up close, but they mainly disappear in the nap of the carpet.
