Hello Slim, I used 1/2 inch 6 ply from Home Depot. it wasnt to bad price for it and it is a good sturdy frame with the 3/4 staples. I also made a bottom for it today and finished the center cup holder and storage compartment.

fiberglass, Aren't you curius about putting extra weight on your boat and a lot of work,If I were you I would just paint the wood with (Flexible) Epoxy, Paint.Since nothing is going to be submerged ,I think fiberglass is overkill

kitelan, I agree with the extra weight with the fiberglass . You'r right I should use epoxy to seal it up and call it good. Thanks for the heads up .

The other option to consider would be either undercoating or Herculiner roll on bed liner. Both of those are flexible also and might hold up a little longer.

Undercoating would be a good option to use and it will hold up. Here is the motor comming along little by little.

I went to MARINE MACHINE here in Michigan today to get a new prop shaft and coupler made. They didnt have my size in stock. From what Brian the owner said there special made parts. the total cost for both is $435.oo For both to be made. If you need any shafts or couplers or anything to deal with inboard boat's give him a call at 1-(586)791-8800 or look them up online at marinemachining.com or aquamet.com

Hi Mr. MC I didnt think of them. It is ok I am keeping local machine shop open. Tim C. from OJPROPS put me intouch with Marine Machine. Just to explain what coupler I have it is a 5" 4 hole bolt pattern with a 3" inch shank not a 2" for the shaft it is a 1"1/8 42". I will them next Wednesday and Brian will drop them off to me. Now that is service.

Nothing wrong with supporting the local shop. I thought your boat would have a 1" shaft so the price I put up was a little low. Gotta love the great service.

My boat is put away for the winter 200 miles from here. Next year I will have a garage here so I can be working on it through the winter. I have to live vicariously through you and some of the others. Keep up the good work.
