bling bling bob!
Bucks, good product. I had to search through that website for a bit before I found it, but I am glad I did. I think you are on to something. I have some metal mesh like that, but this might be lighter weight.
Here is the link to the specific product I found.
If you get some, let us know how you like it, what its weight bearing capacity seems to be. It being 4' wide by 2' should allow it to rest across the frame and onto the pontoons. The square mesh should allow a myriad of tie down points. Cool.
Mike, that is very nice. Does it make you back heavy or out of balance?
That's the $64 question whenever one adds additional weight to the back of the boat, either in camping gear, kids or dog. While most boats will allow you some wiggle room in trimming the frame fore or aft relative to the pontoons, others like the Scaddens, with their asymmetrical D rings along the 'toons, are much harder to trim. My Skykomish Sunrise let's me adjust the frame about 2-3" in total fore and aft movement while my Osprey frame on Maxxon tubes can move up to a couple feet.
Kent speaks wisdom! Some modifications might require creative moving of the frame on toons, seats on frame and footpegs on frames. I've been lucky my toons have allowed me all the flexibility I've needed so far.
When I add a trolling motor or cooler or to my southfork I do have the ability to shift the frame forward about as far as I want. Since MikeStarks was on a Bucks I figure he has the ability to do the same thing.
Not too bad...Had to move the frame forward a bit on the tubes, but was able to balance it out quite nicely...THe Bucks are nice that way as they allow for some wiggle room.
Hey Mumbles, give up on this stuff. It says: "not recommended for turkeys":rofl:
Oh Wayne, I read that in the product description. I never knew what the hell they were talking about. You just showed me what they are talking about. Nice one!:thumb:
That is classic!
