Mods on my Lowe 1960
I have a Lowe R1960MT, heavy duty jon boat, with a Yamaha 115 4 stroke outboard. The person I purchased if from had lots of "stuff" added that I do not need - internal gas tank, bench seats, several heavy storage compartments.
All these add-ons make the boat very heavy inside. I live in Fairbanks during the week, and on the weekend commute to Wasilla where my family is located.
I am wanting to lighten the boat up, add a tunnel hull (to protect from foot damage), flotation pods, windshield and canvas top, fully enclosed zippered top for winter ops. Does anyone out there know of a really good fabrication/modification shop in Fairbanks that I can get this work done?
Thanks for your advice and help!

The work I saw in a friend's boat (post#8) was excellent, but the thread contained many suggestions, maybe depending on what your job requirments, priorities, etc are.
