I dont remember using it when I sat up front. I never used the trolling motor after I made sure it was set up right, and I never use a fish finder to find fish (mostly just for depth). but I do remember that I did place it there based on good visibility from the rear seat. and looking at the pics it should be easily visible from the front.
Great build, sucks you don't have it anymore
Love your "rail" idea and TM bracket. Going to put those ideas into my 12' V Aluminum in another month or so...can't wait to get it going
I loved the rail too. Ive got a 1232 now and soon I will install the same style seats, exact bases and mounts but without the plywood on the benches. but I will not add a deck. floor or trolling motor. and my favorite addition will be another accessory rail. Ive actually just purchased the exact same fish finder, vertical rod holder and collapsible paddle

I found it to be stable for standing there and casting on calm water. my original intent when building the deck was to add a seat insert there, but I decided not too for stability reasons. Im sure it would be stable enough for calm lakes but I fish mostly salt water rivers and creeks. I did wish that I hadnt put the trolling motor there in the way.
