A few months ago, I purchased my first bass boat. 1982 Ranger 350V.....
I took on an overhaul project to get it where I am happy with it. I custom built a full casting deck, added new seats, recarpeted from the seats forward. Did some rewiring to lights and Threw on a wrap because the gel was shot. Motor runs strong and aside from hooking up electronics and a couple small things, its water ready!

Heres a few pics to see the WIP along the way.

BEFORE












AFTER















Thanks for looking!!

Quick update!

I worked on it through the nasty weather, determined to be able to go out on Sunday for a little while.
The final touches are done!
Trolling tray, electronics are hooked up and some mood lighting!

Designed it and wrapped it myself. I had the opportunity to print through my work as a test.

I fished out of one of those 300 series Rangers for a dozen years. Really good fishing platform especially for getting up in the bushes/brush. You did a good job. Just curious, did you use treated wood?

I treated and sealed with a primer after final frame and boards were installed before carpeting.
