Default Started my Flatbottom rebuild this weekend.

Now that my son has a job this might take a little longer since I don't have a helper. A few cracks to weld up and a new floor. Front and rear deck and maybe a removable bow fishing deck after I get it back on the water.

That's gonna be a blast of fun when you get done! I've gotta 1648 that I've been having a ball with. Built a custom aluminum frame duck blind for it. Built up the transom for a long shaft motor. Will rebuild it later with all aluminum/no wood. Built a set of stairs on the front of the trailer after completely rebuilding the home made trailer. Designing a removable drop in aluminum framed front deck just for fishing next.

Nice! Just "finished" mine. 17' mod v. Owned boat since 1994! Built to run fast and skinny! That's a big hull, going to be sweet!
