    It would be alright to put a floor in a boat if boats had floors . Boats have decks!!! .

    Really it shouldn't be that hard to install a deck in that boat, I was just looking at a 14ft v-bottom aluminum boat on craigslist.com that had a step up deck in it very nice setup.

    Projects include: To many boats, to many outboards, and 1 I/O that I hope to be rid of soon.

    I just sent you a pm (private message), with a link to that boat to give you an idea of how it is set up.

    Me too! I just put mine in the shop to get started next week. I put a piece of 3/4" plywood just to see if it would work, and I liked how it worked out. I'm planning on using 1/2" treated with adding a stringer. My goal is to keep the added weight to 100 pounds or less.

    I just added a couple of seat mounts and got rid of the clamp mounts. I wanted something that I could also use without the seats. I use the boat for deer hunting too.

    I have a 1977 14' Sea Nymph with a 60" beam
