Thanks Joe!

Since installing this, my back no longer aches when I'm done fishing.  :nope:

I fished 8+ hours yesterday and didn't even feel a slight ache or tightness in my back.

Looks great Curt!!  After handcrafting one out of diamond plate alum for my boat, we discovered stringers under the deck where it needed to go, could not install it, now it sits in the corning collecting dust :(

What boat do you have? I've installed many with glassed in support stringers with zero issues.

I believe he was referring to his former boat, a Tracker Tournament V 18.
