Are you not worried about the C clamps or is that just temporary until you know it will work and then you'll construct more solid? Seems like they will constantly loosen and/or move.

That definitely could be a factor, they seem to be pretty solid but it will be a trial and error. I'm pretty good at Afro-engineering things to stay where they are if need be! Haha
Do you have a suggestion for a better mount?

I would 1st get it out on the water to see if it works or what you want. Once you decide then I would look into welding 4 brackets onto the boat that you can bolt each leg to.

I wish I had the equipment to weld aluminum! You know of anyone around OKC that can?

Ha didn't even notice you were from Oklahoma. I got a guy that has a custom bike shop/aluminum boat repair shop to weld mine. Let me know if and when and I'll give you his number. He's just off I-40 and Choctaw.

Glad to see you got the title worked out, I was worried about mine initially, but like you said it was really easy! Where do you plan on using it for its maiden run?

I added outrigger's to my 10' footer, simple pvc and blue dock foam, cut foam into two foot pieces and fasten it to a pvc tee with alum straps and very close to the boat sides. very stable now wish I could show pictures but don't know how

The deck is coming along just fine. I got the hatch cut out and trimmed about 3/8 inch off to allow for the carpet. I still need to put in the 2x4's on the bottom and attach the hinges. I'm getting antsy to get her in the water.
This is the first thing I've ever carpeted so it was interesting learning the process.

Her maiden voyage will hopefully be on Lake Konawa. It hasn't gotten real warm in OK yet. Konawa is a smaller local power plant lake so the discharge side already getting good! They even have a few hybrids in there :D

I would love to see some pictures! There is a how to guide for pictures in the "Watering Hole" forum for you technologically challenged old folk :wink:

I was able to get the deck supported and put the rim around the hatch today. This thing is solid.
I'm getting really close to the finish line and I'm ready to get this thing in the water! :D
Sorry about the dark black and white photo, I had to edit it to make it small enough pixel-wise for this website.

Thanks, XtremeAngler17! That would be convenient. Do you have a thread going for your build?

This is awesome! I will be posting the original pics on my project this weekend, also a 10ft. I have stabilizers i purchased for my canoe that fit on the front of the boat, they will need some modifications but nothing major. They also clamp on. I look forward to watch your project move forward as well as share my own.

Did you build a support frame for your deck? If so can you post photos of it please.

There is no way to tag a name that I'm aware of. I just do it to keep confusion to a minimum. Haha. That's a good idea though! Maybe an admin will see this and make something happen [-o< Let me know when you start your forum!

StevePruven
Thank you, Steve! I'm excited to see your build! Don't let the negative feedback about 10 footers get you down, it'll be as good as you make it.
Because the deck rests on the bow seat and the middle seat, I didn't build a frame per se. However, there is a support near the center of the deck around the middle of the hatch. The deck just sits in the gap between seats. The best part is that it's removable incase I wanna put the seats in and go catfishing. :D

Most of the support comes from the seats

I used treated 2x4's
