Greetings to everyone,

Today I worked on the Rear Deck Extension on the G3.  I added a hinge to it so it now can be opened like a regular deck lid.  The only thing I have left to do is install a locking device.  I think I'm going to wait on this and have it done when I take to the welding shop and have an aluminum deck constructed on it.  But for now I'm happy with Dwayne's idea it's going to work well.

Deck insert with a piano hinge installed

Open and accessible battery compartment

No need for any lid shocks it rest against the pedestal stand

The finished project

I've had this boat since Dec 2006.  I don't know why I never thought about doing this project sooner.  Dwayne comes down for a visit and wham Dad lets do this.  I did a FaceTime with him today after I got finished with it.  I thanked him again for the idea.
