That is a storage compartment,someone made that into a livewell.Those boats all have just storage compartment as mine does to.I just bought a brand new one a few days ago.I was thinking about making mine into a livewell to but in fl it get down right hot and the water boils at 90 degrees so the water in the livewell will boil my live bait,lol, so i will just use it for a storage compartment.Nice rig by the way,alumacraft makes great boats.

Consider putting ice in your livewell instead of water. Your fish will be dead and stiff when you get home.

I fish saltwater,plus ice doesn't help in 90degree water. The bottom of the boat boils in the water so ice is useless,I use a yeti cooler for my fish and food and a ten gallon home depot drinking cooler for my livewell.

Finally got it out on the water. a little uncomfortable working the throttle seeing as its a remote. still looking for the steering linkage. to hook steering up but couldn't wait till I find one to take it out. 26 mph by the gps with two 200 lbs people and all our gear and 2 31 group deepcycle batteries.

Love the boat..... you've definately made it your own. I jjst oerded my new MV1648 NCS can't wait to pick it up on the 31st.

Where did you find the standup seat and post? I will be needing one soon I never got used to sitting down in a regular seat up front.

I found the post at Wal-Mart marked down from 69$ to 25 .I was on the fence about putting one up front until that steal decided it for me. Its nice and the base only sits a quarter inch above the deck so its not tripping me when I remove the seat to throw my cast net
