Thanks Christian. With that known I'll fabricate something with what I've got at hand and make a more informed decision later. I've never stood on one but they are sure less expensive than the full aluminum reinforced decks. Do you have your mesh floor full length? I was thinking on my 122" frame I'd prefer just to deck the front with a 48" NRS floor and the back with another 48" deck. That would allow a good space for the anglers or family to stand and move about but also provide a floor for a cooler or two for storage. They also have mesh floor spreaders to span the drop tubes to keep the floor at higher tension, do you use those also? Thanks again.
