I am starting to work on my 14' starcraft seafarer, I think it is anyway. The boat weighs around 170# and I have a 1974 9.9 Evinrude that goes on it. I want to make it more fisherman friendly. I'm going to add a front deck, pedistal seats, flat floor w/ carpet and a bow mount Minkota. I already stripped it down bare and need to replace the wood tops on the benches. Next week I should get some time to work on it some more.

Well, it has been 2 years and I finally started to work on it. I have been working 3 jobs after getting laid off 3 years ago and have had little spare time. I am down to 2 jobs now and might be able to use my boat this summer. I started the framing for the front deck on Friday.
Well it is 95% complete, just a few loose ends I need to tie up. I had it out on Tuesday and it fished great! I'll post some pics later tonight.
I completed the electrical work today and is all wired up. Night lights and nav lights have switches on a pannel mounted under the rear bench. Fully carpeted deck and under deck storage. I'm headed out fishing tomorrow morning.
Looks great man, I like the wood/carpet combo for the front deck!

Thanks! That wasn't the the plan, a mouse chewed a hole in the roll of carpet in the garage last winter and I ran short on carpet to do the benches.
Here is an updated pic of the rear bench with the lights and switch panel.
I like it! Very efficient.

Thanks Scott! Now if we can just get rid of the foot of snow and 3 feet of ice around here, I can get it out.
