Re: AD 14 KIELGE

I am glad it is working out for you. Now you know why I put those sides om the cockpit area of my boat that is where I keep all my junk while out on the boat. So far I have not lost any thing over the side. I plan on getting my boat out for the first time this year in the next few days.

Your deck area I have had no problems with that being strong enough to support the weight I have had 2 180 pound people up there a number of times with no sine of it being soft. The only place I have felt any soft areas is in the floor of the cockpit some times you can feel it there so an extra lair...
