I would like a front and rear deck on my skiff because I am tired of stepping over the middle bench a then I have to sit in the front seat and then spin around. 85% I fish alone rarely there is a second person. I was thinking of pulling seat mounts of benches and the fiber-glassing holes up again for floatation. Then I would like to use sheet of aluminum to deck the front (from bow to the center bench/live-well) and rear for storage underneath and a deck to fish from. I kinda like a seat to sit and lean back in but don't like that they are always in the way and you can not move around much. Instead of a frame under the aluminum, I was thinking I could bend the edges down on the side and rivet it to the side of boat. Then rivet ribs of bent aluminum to strengthen the span up. the only problem there is it would be hard to add doors to access underneath. I have plenty of rivets, 4'x4' sheets of aluminum and I also have screen porch square tubing laying around. Any ideas on a budget? Also what do y'all do for seating?
