PUTTING A DECK ON A 12FT V BOTTOM

Recommended Posts

Could you put wood across the seats to make a deck. I know you could but is it reccomended to have bracing underneath the deck. Any help suggestions or comments would be appreciated.

I'm a newbie, but I just finished my first mod on my 12' v hull 2 weeks ago. I guess you can do what you want, I think it might be a little "tippy" I mostly use my trolling motors on the calm lakes that I fish, but I was concerned with running my 6hp motor sitting high on pedestals, at least I can take my seat pedestal posts out and sit on the bench with the seats in and have plenty of room for my legs. If you just plan on running a trolling motor, then put a deck all the way across and you should be fine, but if you're gonna use any gas powered motor and sit with pedestals be careful! Included is a photo of my first time out with her last week, what a great day of fishing! But if you notice, I can put the seats down low and add the pedestals poles once I get on the lake. Good luck! Just my two cents! D. 8-)

Thanks bro, took me a couple of months in my spare time to fix her up, but I'm really gonna enjoy fishing in this Northeastern Ohio gorgeous fall weather for the next 6-8 weeks (my fiance is already complaining I'm fishing too much!) Now I just gotta figure out how to use this new Hummingbird fishfinder I bought, just mounted the tranducer on the bottom of the transom and sealed the screws with silicone tonight, can't wait to use it!  I'll let ya know how it works!  D. 8-)
