Since the season is over for me, today I had the time to make and install a 24 gauge sheet metal floor for my boat. All I need now is the Hydro Turf and the new floor and deck will be complete.
I used 1/2" Styrofoam for extra flotation and support. I cut these pieces and fitted them in between the ribs. I doubled the Styrofoam between each rib.
I then made my measurements and used 24 gauge sheet metal.
Then I started marking my cuts.
Making my cuts.
Fitting the metal to the ribs.
Making my cut marks so it will be flush with the ribs.
Metal now sits flush with ribs.
To finish off the flooring I secured it with pop rivets.
Fear God, love your neighbor, and shoot ducks.
