Nice Idea

Keep those photos coming,  I look forward to seeing end product,  Seems some foam under and in the sides would help ICE
Longevity  what are your thoughts

I was on the boat today, they have the hatch built and installed. Capt. Josh's plans are to install some gas shocks on the hatch and gelcoat the whole thing, it should look real sharp when he gets done and should keep ice pretty good considering they foamed the whole thing.  Fortunately plans were cut short to finish this afternoon because they got the offshore itch, Left the dock around 5:00 to fish all night.  Cool Cool Oh how i wish i didnt have to work!

Looks really nice. I was thinking of cutting the floor in that same location but then I started thinking I would have to finish the inside of it because of the rough surface from manufacturing. Where did you put the drains for it? Down through the floor and out the back or just right onto the deck with some plugs? I might start on mine sometime this month!!! Looks good....let see the finished product.

I was also thinking of cutting the top of the seats on either side and installing some hatches for extra storage.

Did you try to put any acetone on the foam? Might be an interesting conversation to have with garret from angler, if you could just spray the foam down a little at a time it would be a lot safer than cutting the foam out and possibly hitting a wire or the fuel filler hose.

My boat doesn't seem to have the foam under the seats, I used a mirror and a flashlight to look. As for under the floor I am not sure. I am going to see if I can get my hand in there with a camera and try to take a picture.

I Attempted Acetone on closed cell foam and it did not do much to it,  The foam was not out of my angler but it was a Poly urethane closed cell foam that is used in the injection model.

Good to know. Acetone would have definitely made it easier.
