Adding a fishing platform
« on: January 11, 2003, 12:26:35 PM »
I can't remember who from the old forums was asking about adding a platform in the front of a 14' aluminum V hull, but I did this to my 14' last winter. I used the existing front 2 seats as structural supports. I used 2 layers of 5/8" marine plywood because I cut in some storage areas in between the seats.

To get the correct configuration, I made some full size templates out of cardboard. When satisfied with the fit, I transferred to the plywood. I also added a pedestal seat.

Overall, I am very happy with the modification.

This winter I plan on adding a rear platform and one or two live wells. 8) 8) 8)
