This is all very impressive. Nothing like creating something over time with effort. Congrats all the way around.

When I first opened this thread I felt sick for that poor boat. When you said labor of love, you weren't kidding. That hard work has created something to be proud of for a long time to come. Nice work.

I love overkill. Lower the motor into the boat or lift the boat onto the motor.

Thanks Ill look at it. You may very well be right- It does look a bit off center.

Several options - White Board or composite board- Both pretty expensive. Viper used 1 inch Plywood- fiberglass covered both sides and 3/4 x 3/4 aluminum square rod screwed into the bottom the entire width. A bit heavier but it seems to work- the aluminum honeycomb just snaps and crumbles when straightened. Some folks have made an additional center folding support that helps when people stand on it. Ill send a picture if you desire.

I thought it weird too- Moeller folks have been great and yep the screws are sealed but thats the way it came.

Wingnut, how many feet of carpet did you end up needing? Was it a PIA scraping off all the old glue?
