Well the deck is in and ready for plywood to cover it. There is a split lid for the livewell and large access in the front. Batteries will be mounted in front hatch for 24v trolling motor.

Well the motor is all tuned up and running like a dream. Engine and gas area is complete.

Welll the night fishing lights turned out great. I can flip these guys on and the entire inside of the boat is lit up. Good find on eBay.

Also I want to have rod storage as I go down the lake from spot to spot without the rods being in the floor. I came up with this idea and will have 8 across the back. A plywood carpet covered platform will be made next week and the tubes will go one inch onto the platform and will not extend into the battery and gas area. This will be awesome to keep everything out of the way while not fishing. Simple, cheap but highly effective

King Starboard AS it is. I have been thinking about what decking I wanted to use and what would be the best money wise. Plywood was going to ultimately cost $75 a sheet after treatment and carpet and I would need 2 sheets. I have used starboard before and loved it so I called my local plastics supply house and ordered 1/2 inch in dolphin gray to match my theme. Never have to worry about water or UV damage with this. A sheet was $235 for a 55"x94" sheet. I had them cut it to size so all I have to do now is route my openings and put the radius in for the sides. I had enough left over to do my back shelf and my console.

Cut to size for my deck.

One thing kayak fishing taught me was DIY. Rod holders to keep rods out of the boat when running. Clean and useful

Making templates of the deck with manilla folders and now to transfer it to a piece of luan. Have to make sure all is right before I cut the starboard.
