fishing platform ?

Post by sfoster » Mon May 11, 2015 7:49 pm

I've got a `77 19br that the family loves, I was more inclined to a fish and ski type boat. So my question is has any seen a platform built/added to the engine cover?

Not sure exactly what you're looking to add to the engine cover area - a place to sit and fish? Looks like there are some commercial options that would be easy, but I might add the rail:

Around here most people sit in elevated seats and fish, and there are plenty of raised seating options like this that will fold down, and may fit the bill:

Im going to build a engine cover that can hold a 300 lbs man with a swivel seat. Im thinking about reworking both seats on either side of the cover and integrating them into the engine cover as one piece so when opened ill have a lot more room to work.

Just haven't studied it long enough yet to have it woked out in my head. Trying to get idea's and some pointers to keep in mind.
