I was just bragging about your boat the other day, wondering where you went because we haven't seen you on here for a long time. Sorry to hear things went down for you., but the bright side... When you bounce back you get all NEW stuff. Welcome back.

c twin, marine plywood and treated lumber. simple project. If it doesn't outlast me it's easy to replace. I had help but really didn't need it. If you look around below decks you'll see where to attach.
