    I havent been around here on the BOC in a while. We moved out into a country setting FINALLY and didnt have an internet connection out here for the last 6 months. Am back finally tho. Alot of good people gave me some good information on here as I was starting the renovation of my boat. Well, here are the results.

    First pic of the finished product

    When I started tearing the old follr out, I found that a previous owner had actually put a second layer of flooring in it which accounted for all the extra weight it was carrying around. I tore it all out and replaced it all with 3/4 inch treated plywood, a coat of fiberglass and carpet.

    And finally replaced the old instrument panel with newer guages and switches. Relocated my locater and got the gps working. Added a new Uniden marine radio. Now if I can just find time to get in the water I will be happy.

    Really nice job you did there. I like those deck boats plenty room. how much does it sit out of the water? Freeboard I guess they call it. Does it handle like a boat or like a pontoon. Just curious. Good Job. Mac
