1986 Alumacraft Super Hawk

Post by rktman » 01 Aug 2016, 14:52

I bought an older 86 Alumacraft and it appears to be a Super Hawk series Mod. V. I bought it primarily for the 40 hp jet on the back as it was a decent price. It is a side console with plywood floor and front and rear decks.
It looks similar to this one: http://www.louisianasportsman.com/lpca/ ... d405367b36

After a very slow river ride (20 mph, took forever to plane out), I decided to gut it out and turn it into an open floor plan gigging/hunting boat.
I pulled the front and rear deck plywood off and it was full of old foam, water that cant drain, wires and tubing.

The floor has a bracket around the sides that covers the plywood/carpet.
I'm wondering how you do remove the bracket covering the floor section since it appears to be riveted to the hull.

I also noticed the braces are either really short or this boat doesn't have them? looks odd.

Thanks.
