I have thought about making my aft section of floor 2 pieces or one large access port in my 91. It is just now starting to get just a little soft.

Still engineering something to work for aft floor...my boat is an hour from home, so finished product will take a while.

BTW - how wide, (front to back), did you make piece that holds hinges for dog house?
Had to measure in the dark, but it looks like 7 1/4" I thought the wider the better. Pretty sure the front section was touching the exhaust hoses. Rear floorboard was 29 1/2" and tucks under the carpeted panel that conceals the fuel tank.

You can pick up doghouse hinges with removable hingepins, which makes pulling the motor cover out when you need to REALLY easy. Worth putting them in if you're pulling the floor anyway, IMO.

Have yet to have anyone catch a toe on my boat. I've had her since 2008.

I may have to take that risk... now.. I hate removing half the hinge over winter... is there a link to those exact hinges? I only find the smaller ones.

Mine came with my boat. I will have a look around.
