Started to realy work on the boat this weekend by pulling the floor up to take a quick look at the foam under the floor and found out I have 3 broken ribs under the floor. Which explains why the floor bowed up each time I hit a wave, I just thought my pop rivets broke loose but I was completely wrong. After a run to the hard ware store i had the floor repaired. Pics and an explanation of what was done to come later tonight
Removing the old carpet and glue

I have done any lids yet but so far the corners of the deck are staying put

And this carpet is the same carpet in all bass trackers and some nitros

Yea I thought about that but also didn't want to stray to far from the color scheme of the boat

Thanks part 2 will come when the rain stops water based glue is good for clean up but sucks for the current weather conditions
