Thanks, guys!

Look at the big rectangular hole where the ski locker door was. I thinking about figuring out a way to put a 120 qt Igloo cooler in there instead of going back with a ski locker that we don't use. I'd either build a chest-type enclosure around it (or a hatch-type lid), or raise the whole deck forward of the piece I just installed about four inches to clear the top of it.

I can think of pros and cons for both designs. Anyone have any suggestions? Or should I just put it under the rear bench seat?

I would biuld a costom cool there in stead that you can remove later and make it a ski locker again for resale value.
Easy to make a costom cooler for the hole. thats what i think

I agree with nh boater! Build it so that you can simply glass in a piece of floor if the "future owner" objects to the cooler installation.

Great Idea!

Thanks for the advice. I don't plan on ever selling it, but who knows what might happen ahead.

I'll devise a drop in deck board to keep the floor level when the cooler isn't in place. That'll give me something to ponder tomorrow at work!

Last night, I added a layer of fiberglass matting and resin to the deck. Looks the same, so no pictures; but we're making progress, albeit slow.

Holy crap, Flashbacks!

I had just restored my 87 1950 capri 5.0L.

Looks good so far. You may check the framing of the rear seating. Mine is off more than 1 inch, everything is crooked. Ill be tearing it all out next year and putting in some seats like my back to back ones, theyre much better.

Here is what ive done to mine so far.

I removed all the framing for the rear seats. In its place will be a sun/fishing deck. That pushes the rear seating forward...which, unless I run into any reasons to change my mind, will be a bench across the width of the boat. Of course, I have to work in the cupholders...the admiral is crazy about cupholders.

If it weren't 100 degrees outside right now, I'd be knee-deep in the project. I'll just have to sit here and have a frosty adult beverage...darn the luck.

Mobilus

hope you got her finished for July 4th , I did a deck rebuild, albiet not as down to the basics as yours on my 1952 Cuddy, see below for the nearly finished look, used the two Wise seats for Helm and Nav and benched the rest towards the back, so we now have rubber covered seats and deck for when we are fishing and we have since made up some Blue leather covered tops for the sides which are removeable and storable. So the Admiral has 7 foot either side to lay in the sun and when me and the boys are out the leather tops come off and we have plenty of room for bait, beer etc etc .

great post, please make sure you post the finished results

Thanks, Tom. Your work looks great. I like the rubber mat you used. Where's you find it?

I've finished the floor work, and I'm working on the sundeck and rear seating now. I missed my deadline, but it has been a busy summer. Now I'm hoping to get it out on the lake ( in some condition, maybe not totally finished) before my wife and I take a cruise through the eastern Carribean next month (Carnival).

Mobilus , the rubber is called HiDuty studded rubber matting over here

32 ft x 4 ft x 3/16" thk is less than £100.00 enough to do the whole boat, it stinks when you first put it down, but it goes away in a couple of weeks. It's great to work with , its so damned heavy that its almost self moulding when you lay the floor, no need for adhesive. It cuts easy to shape with a box cutter and hoses down well when you have had a good days fishing, then on go the leather tops and she's back to a sun lounger for the admiral.

If you never fish and therefore never get the inside of your boat dirty then probably not the right solution , but it works well for us, I could never keep a carpet looking good for any length of time myself.

Enjoy the cruise, Carnivals a good carrier, nice vessels in the main (but then again I do a fair bit if work for them, so I am a bit biased)
