Decided to do some major modifications to my hunting boat. I cut slats in the bottom of the boat from the front to the rear and welded 2" aluminum angle over them so water will drain all the way to the back. Will make cleanout much easier also. Fabricated and welded in a tunnel for my jet. Next I will flip it over and start on the transom. Am going to raise it 8". Will post more pics as work progresses.
