sundeck conversion

I, along with a few gifted friends, finally have my one piece sundeck converted to three pieces.
Without having to wait for a cylinder to raise the back and with easy access from the swim platform, I am looking forward to filling ballast tanks without having people move out of the way, throwing life jackets directly into the storage areas, and having access to the storage areas from the rear for any type of gear.

Last year I removed the carpet on the bottom of the storage areas and put in a slightly raised tile which allows ballast bags to dry on the bottom and water to drain directly into bilge area. One of the best upgrades I have done, second for sure to Perfect Pass. . No more damp carpet that never dries out all summer.

Here are some photos. We were able to use existing vinyl. Still have to install gas shocks. I also hope to put some netting or storage unit on underside of side units for storing towels. My thought is a warm motor makes for warm towels.

Excellent - I was planning on a similar upgrade to my (nearly) identical boat this winter but didn't get to it.

Where did you get the latches from?

Here is a link to the product. http://www.duragrid.com (Cross rib matting) Look under Indoor uses...marine applications

In regards to the carpet, I simply cut out the floor portion and left the sides. A little cleaner and putty knife will remove glue residue for a nice smooth surface.

I like that Duragrid stuff, that's much nicer than what I was envisioning. Nice work!

Nice job LaRue. Fixed a big nuisance issue with our boats. Three hatches and no waiting will be nice.
