A bit of progress.....

 

I like having a bimini on the skiff for the hot afternoons and the run home....as well as sitting for a while and having lunch.

The bimini was normally sitting on the poling platform.  I have two locations for the bimini, one which covers the stern part of the skiff so you have everything from the console forward open and the second is the standard position where it covers the console and about 1/3 of the stern.  For inshore fishing, you can put up the bimini and have the entire front of the skiff available for fishing on the bow.  I had Ralph put together a set of bars to catch the bimini in the far most position (back 1/2) so it  out of the way when fishing without the bimini.  With this, it takes about 30 seconds to put it up and when finished using it, you just drop it back.

Heres the beginning of the casting platform....I wanted something large.  We are going for 20"  high with a step and it will have a leaning bar that can be placed facing forward or at back of the platform....

All the hatches will be able to be opened.....more to come :)

  Dino / Ralph,

   I understand the starboard but that would be slippery as all get out, so the install of the seadek makes perfect sense but how is the adhesion? Does the adhesive used on seadek firmly and pemanetly adhere to Starboard? Nothing else does!

I have been doing this set up for about 10 years , and have a 100% success rate .

It sticks very well , to the starboard .

I do have a secret process I use though ! 🙄

When I go sliding off in the middle of a mud flat up in Tom Bight in Chokoloskee....guess who I'll be calling :)

Outlaw you opened the secret process question.

Do you take a torch or heatgun to the starboard just enough to get it dull and loose the shine? Have had some luck doing so with stickers and lettering. It makes a difference but still has its limitations.

The artist in his uniform....he wants everyone to know he does change his clothes everyday  :) it's just that he wears an AIM shirt and blue jeans everyday as his uniform.

Looks good! Nice work as always by Ralph and AIM Welding.

Just be careful though Dino. Thief's will probably steal all the aluminum on that boat before they steal the boat!:D

 

It willl sleep under a cover on the side of the house (LOL)....

I NEED a big platform with a bar like that. Looks great!

Ping the outlaw....if you give him your placements on the deck for the legs, he can build around it.....

I'm really happy with it.

Super sturdy.
