1973 14' Valco casting deck

Post by putmbak » 18 May 2011, 11:28

I have a 14' valco with a 20hp johnson on the back. I am wanting to add a casting deck to the bow so I can use a bow mounted trolling motor, and also add a raised flat deck between all of the benches for right now. The boat measures 64" at the widest point and has a 46" bottom by the middle bench.
I am 6'5" and 285 lbs ( a big boy.) I would like to raise the front deck no more then 2-4" off of the fwd bench seat. See pictures attached to get an idea of what I working with. If this works out and after looking at all the great mods you guys have done to your boats, I might tackle something more in the winter.

How high would you raise the flooring between the bench seats?

All comments welcomed..

Thank you
