hello again, considering removal of middle seat from a 1448 alumacraft jon. this boat has 21" sides, center seat with dry storage and hatch cover, and many ribs from 2/3 the way up the sides and across the bottom inside the boat.
i checked the tinboats website and found others with the same boat have removed the center seat. could it be that this version of alumacraft jon boats have a hull strong enough without the center seat?
