I found so many great posts for the Water Wagon, Foam Boats that I had to try to do one for myself. I got the foam from a mfg in Midlothian and then went to work. After several ideas, I settled on what you see below. I used foam to wood adhesive to glue the plywood to the seat area. This is for attaching a cushion and seat-back. I also glued wood blocks as mounting bases for my homemade rod holders. Forget Scotty, I made these bad boys for about $5 each! One for a baitcaster and one for a fly rod.
Blocks for eye-bolts in the rear to secure a crate with bungee cord and a block on the front for a rope cleat to secure an anchor. The PVC bar is for a foot rest and attached to it is a roller to thread the anchor rope for easy anchor handling.
And for the ultimate redneck accoutrement, gun slings attached to hinges screwed in the wood seat base for use as shoulder straps to carry the whole thing on my back!
Her maiden voyage (since being finished) is set for tomorrow when a buddy and I go pond hopping.
