I recently bought my 1436 tracker and OB motor for fishing the Brazos river and area lakes. After hitting the water a few times already, I needed to silence the tinny sounds my youngest son makes every time he moves. I installed a floor in all three compartments and covered with marine carpet. The floors are higher in the middle and slope toward the sides so as to aid in drainage. I also added a 34" deck to the bow to facilitate easier entry/exiting at the river/lake banks and provide aplatform for either running limb lines or the occasional bass fishing excursion. This also created a stowage area for PFD's, TP, first aid kit and a few other permanents items. Non of the screws are attached anywhere other than in the braces or seats. I spent a lot of time on this forum and others researching the so called Bass Jons to get ideas for my flooring and few offered detailed photos or descriptions of exactly how to do this. So, I'm mechanicly inclined and, since I work in the window manufacturing business, I have access to aluminum extrusions. I bought some 3/4" sq tube and 3/4" angle (both .0625 wall), 2 sheets 15/32 BC sanded ply, and 3 yds of marine carpet. the rest of the items I already had (1/8" Aluminum rivets, contact cement, 1" stainless self tapping screws, and marine epoxy. I did this project in about 6 hours over two days using only a cordless drill, skil saw and chop saw. It was easy cheap, and fun. I just took it out today in a private lake and it performed superbly. The front deck will take a little getting used to, but it really helped with my underhand pitches. I'll post a few pics of the finished job once I get the side boxes made. these will house the rod and drink holders as well as misc. items we always carry.
