I did some more thinking on this- I had my wife sit in the boat last night, and she really likes not having the ski lockers there. It really opens up the space and creates room. At this point I'm thinking something like this
- eliminating the ski lockers completely and adding a small shelf on each side with a bungee net front for storage. I'd still be able to mount the speakers, have storage for small stuff but it would really open the interior.
Couldn't find a really good picture, but conceptually, this is close:
I think if I could keep the shelf about 3 inches deep, mounted above the midline of the hull, it would still help keep things open. I'll be starting the build tomorrow, I'll try to take lots of pictures and document this process.
