So I picked up this boat with a trailer for $300. Spent the spring and half of last summer redoing everything to the best of my ability, which isn’t much, but I at least got it back on the water. I don’t think these boats were designed for someone to stand on the front and cast off of so I reinforced it with plywood and injected the space between the ply and the aluminum with spray foam. It works ok but I’d like something better. I’m thinking of buying a cheaper version of Seadek to put up top, the paint gets REALLY slippery. My biggest question for everyone is how to seal up the bottom of an aluminum boat? I already put the floor in and don’t want to take it out if I can avoid it.

In the aluminum skiffs ive had , i used slat floor supported by ribs
Removable to clean. Walking on hull ( bottom) can stress rivets & cause leaks. Great job!
