Very nice, I have a aluminum flat bottom just like that, you just gave me an idea.
Did you make the casting deck or buy it?
What type of paint did you use?

That is an outstanding job!

Nem..

Casting deck is 1/8 aluminum. I bought a 4x5 sheet and had the fab shop break it for me.
The frame for the deck is 1" tubing. I put sheet metal in between the tubing and the boat, to prevent the tubing from breaking through the 1/16 shell. Held together by rivets. Seems to be plenty strong.

I used a Polyurathane enamel. Flat Black. (after I used a prime coat)

fat.

You sure that deck extension is going to hold me?
I think I need to add another mile to my morning run.

Bang up job there FT. I especially dig the chain steering wheel and Hurst shifter.
