This is for those who have been thinking about doing one. And for inspiration as well. I just finished building this for my 1648 G3. It drops in, is removable, and held in place by 2 ratchet straps under the front. I have some hatch liners for it. Thump box is on the Starboard side rear hatch. Just thought I'd share the build process with yall. I'll let a few pics do the talking. smile

Not sure exactly. I'm a old short fat outta shape feller. I can pick it up with my good arm holding onto the bottom of the seat pedestal mount, from the bottom side. And balance it with my weak arm. Balances perfectly from seat pedestal. I'd say about a hundred. I lifted it up by my self and slid it into place. Wasn't bad at all. Weight was something I always keep in the back of my mind when building for light weight jons. I'll have to get a weight on it when I take it out before duck season.

It's called Hydro-Turff, made by Hydro-Turff. The color is Duck Camo. They have 4 camo color options. And a bunch more single and two color options. It is very popular with the mudboat people and bayboat/skiff people. Keeps the heat down and you can add padding under it. It's about .355" thick. You can also get it in a cut groove like I did. Or a diamond cut, wide cut in two-tone, and a couple of others. I think it was around before Seadek ever was. Much better than carpet. Doesn't soak up water. Much lighter than most marine carpet. And I've re-carpeted enough boats in one of my former jobs to know. Did structural warranty repair for the 5 state region for a few metal boat mfgs for a few years. I'm back to one employer in the aircraft business. So no more outside work/metal fab,

I going to give angle aluminium and rivets a try on the next mod I do. I drag my boat over lots of river stuff so i try to keep it light.
