Save the plan for the crawdad, I might need it If I can score a cheap crawdad over the winter.

Jim, will do. I currently have a drawing with the dimensions of the boat, the internal framwork, and the usable floor space. Once I decide how excactly I want to cut the floor I will make an "AS BUILT" figure. I will keep you posted.
Please don't dominate the rap, jack, if you've got nothing new to say.

pbw,

Glad to help! :) .

I don't know a thing about autocad; I made the rough sketches of the gussets on MSPaint, so I'm glad they weren't to bad and conveyed the idea I had :)

Updated gussets are done, need more mounting hardware I'll get it tomorrow. Then I'll connect the gusset with 2x2 and be done framing! After that I'll install new wiring and cut decking while waiting for Flotation foam and other parts.

The picture make them look unlevel but i've about wore my level out ensuring they arent!

I like the idea of the gussets. But, as some of yall have figured out from my posts, I can't leave good enough alone. :)
So here is my 2 dollars worth (inflation)
You may want a bit of support on your four corners. I circled all four, but only the rearward 2 corners may need it.

I finished all my framing. I've put on my test small sheet of plywood 5/8 and jumped up and down! Its solid.

Then I starting putting on several coats of water proofing.

Third coat drying

Now I need my plywood, going to borrow a truck soon to purchase it.

My flotation foam hopefully is in UPS hands.
