we're going to level off the front deck, there's a 3" step that I trip over constantly, and add a leaning post. Also going to build out a rear deck with a dual livewell and seat for my fishing buddy. I was going to build a new bench to mount the driver and passenger seats but it turns out the gun locker is the perfect size when turned on it's side. I'll post a pic later

Are you going to extend the rear deck all the way to the rear of the seats and put the gun box in between the box's that the seats are currently mounted to?

Or remove the box's that the seats are currently mounted to and use the gun box in thier place to mount the seats to?

I see what you mean about the front deck, that is kind of a weird design. You might be able to build some storage or a live well in the extensione on the front deck (if there isn't one already).

yes the rear deck will continue up to the back of the seats. that's also where the livewell will be installed. we're going to replace the current seat boxes with the bench. Can't put a livewell in the front deck, that's where the fuel tank lives. thanks

thanks Baitcaster. It's coming along slowly but managed to get some work done this weekend...
  • battery charger installed
    hatch locks installed
    livewell installed
    fill pump mounted
    pump out fitting installed
    overflow fitting installed
    hoses connected
    pulled wires to bow for trolling motor and fishfinder
    front deck installed (almost need one more piece)
    trolling motor plug installed
    cup holders installed :D
next up is all the wiring. It's supposed to rain for the next 7 days so I'll probably wait a few weeks to install the carpet.

Looks great! Where did you get the livewell? It's what I've been looking for.
