|The attached is a 11 1/2 ft. fiberglass
that I made in my garage. This boat is for my use only after years of frustration
with conventional car tops. Using a mold that I picked up from an auction, I developed the
shell and then I proceeded to build the workings of the interior the way I wanted it.
What you see in the photo, is what you see when your fishing. Being that I love to
fly fish, I required a flat deck for stability.
||By leveling the floor, I now had room to run fuel
lines under the floor board. In addition, I built the front hatch that holds and
hides my anchors. The vertical hatch holds all my ropes, fly boxes and anything else
that use to roll around under my feet. The lower bow hatch holds my 5 gallon fuel
tank. The side hatches hold and hide my rods, battery, paddles and tackle box.
I have also installed a cup holder, bow and stern lights, floor lights and bilge
pump that are all controlled by a main switch board. This unit is powered by a 9.9
Johnson out board. I feel I have created the exact boat for me on my first attempt.
