Ive Striped my 1963 14ft Aluminum Semi-Vee Down to the bare metal, Im planning on putting hippoliner (cheap Rhinoliner)on the floor which is too shallow for decking. But I am adding in some custom underseat Storage units and a 27 gallon livewell/baitwell which will be removable. I am wondering your thoughts on what type of building material to use. I am severley limited on funds so wood is probally my only option. If I use wood, what kind and is the best way to protect it Poly? Or maybe a waterseal product is better? Both? Id like to make it easy to clean since I primarily catfish. I do not want to carpet it. Also where ive removed all the old wood around the upper lip I have a bunch of screw holes (well above the water line) and figured id patch them with a JB weld type product then sand and paint. Is that the best way? And lastly for the exteroir hull do I have to buy a special type of paint? I was planning on priming it and then hitting it with a bucket of housepaint, but I figured I better ask. Thanks for any responces.
