Ok S & S owners... we LOVE our boats... but we all know there is little storage. My wife and I decided to pull the bench(which we kept) and made this sundeck... it added a ton of storage and gave me somewhere to add (2) more speakers! This was our first time upholstering... so please be gentle! :)

Looks like you accomplished the sun deck and speaker addition nicely.

:) Thanks... I think the vinyl is a little shady, but not bad for a first effort.

Good functional mod. Is that carpet black or charcoal? How hot does it get? I just bought black carpet to match my newfoundland's fur (i.e. black bear) and am wondering if it might get too hot. Thanks

Nice idea! Three's company, and the 4th one skis! No need for any more seating than that.

Just curious, what does that unit weigh? Looks like a lot of wood there.
Does it effect the slalom wake at all?

Thanks... It didn't change the stance of the boat at all in the water... weighs prolly 60 lbs. I have twin daughters... so we need the storage!!! We usually end up with 5 of us on the boat. I do agree (4) max if at all possible! I guess we need our friends to get boats too! :) The main thing fo me was getting (2) more speakers in!!!!!

Nice job. Vinyl isn't perfect but is functional, so I wouldn't sweat it.

Thanks... yea the vinyl kicked our butts! I think we almost broke up 3-4 times during! :)
