12' semi v

Recommended Posts

No problem! I went to Lowes and simply bought some small "L" brackets and some 2"x2"x8' wood, a large sheet of 3/8" plywood, some 2" screws, carpet, outdoor carpet glue. Buy the small peanut butter size carpet glue- a little goes a long way! I'm still in the middle of decking my boat and havent used a whole lot, spread it thin. I made three braces like squares, I made them tall enough for my gas tank to fit on one side and my battery box on the other. I simply screwed the brace into the back of the bench, then into the transom wood (make sure the screws that screw into the transom wood are short enough that they dont go through the back of your boat, just enough to attach into the wood!) Cut your top to fit, glue the carpet and I recommend staples for the under side of your carpet on the wood to hold along with the glue. The back piece I cut to fit and screwed it into the bracing, found some cabinet hinges (3) and attached them, and hey- you got yourself a storage area in the back! I'll try to post some pics later tonight, I looked pretty much looked at every "v" hull mod on this site and picked what ideas worked best for me.

I looks like you added the deck higher than the top of the tank seats. I'd be interested in the boat's stability while fishing when the job is complete.

No, I only made the rear storage higher so I could fit my battery box inside, the seat pedestals are maybe an inch higher than the tank seats. Decking will go on the floor this week.
