Greetings to everyone,

My son while fishing with me out of the G3 made a suggestion about extending the rear deck area.  I told him to come up with a plan and I'd think about it.  Well he did come up with a plan and I told him to make it happen.  Dwayne did a banged up job on getting the rear area squared away on the G3. 

Below are a few pictures of the project.

We're going to test it out on Nolan Lake this weekend.  He sent me updates today while working on it.  After I got home from work he explained everything to me.  There's a couple things we're going to relook at redoing the placement of the fuel tank tiedown strap when the outboard is mounted.  But for right now I'm really pleased with the end product.

Looks good Donald but I think I would go with aluminum angle, I would be worried about galvanic corrosion.  I may be wrong (not an expert on anything)  on that but with dissimilar metals and water and the possible electric current could cause an issue.  Either way it looks better.

Tks for the input.  We've talked about tweaking this project already.  I'm looking at a complete re-carpeting job here this Winter.  If things work out I'm also thinking about taking the plywood out and having an aluminum cover with hinges installed.
