Bellyup, it started with the rubber coating on everything. I didn’t like the stuff and in the process of removing it I started looking and thinking of different things I could do to the boat to make it perform better and what better time to do it than now.
Did you and lance have that built? It was strong!!! I had to use a hoist to remove it. Lol.. The stand had 20’ of ¼ “x 3”x3” steal angle and ..1/8” steal floor….
I am going to go with a .125 aluminum floor and a ¾” square tubing for the seat stand. I should have my new seat stand done and in by this weekend. It should be pretty nice. I am going to push the gages between the seats up also so you don’t have to break your neck .
