Hi
Does anyone have one.. I just bought one and want to put a floor in it.

I have installed foam sheets between the ribs. But i am having trouble with the angle of the floor..The front is alot higher than the back,I was wondering if most people level it out and fill in the space under under the rear of the floor.Most jon mods only cover decking not really the floor.Any tips or help is appreciated

I have a grizzly 1654 and currently don't have a floor in it. I was planning on using 1x3's or 2x4's on both sides of the ribs under the plywood to help lock the floor in place and to level it out. Also my boat is wide and I would have to use 3 pieces instead of using a single 4x8 sheet. Let me know how your turns out!!!

Hmm. I never thought of doing that to lock the floor down and level it.Thanks for the idea.Hope too get a good start on it,so when the weather breaks I might be able to get it out.How do you like yours?Have you had it for a awhile.Mine is only 14ft (1448) but I figured I would be by myself most of the time anyways so it should be plenty of room.Oh yea Im in dayton too :)

Nice job lateral .. saw pics in the gallery.Ill probably deck the back but leave the front as is.The deck space up there is fine for me..Did you make the storage box there w/3 lids?

HEY BYG--I am usually over at Eastwood messing around on electric motor days because my 15hp crapped out. I bought mine from Bass Pro in Feb and have enjoyed it thus far. I put a bow mount MK on it and have plenty of room for the foot pedal. Also using a 55lb transom mount until my motor gets fixed.
