    Boat deck help

    I have older 16ft deep v Lund, maybe a Mr. Pike that is in need of a new floor. I went through and saw a guy named Doug with great reviews who I called and left a vm for but did not hear back.

    Does anyone have any contacts or does anyone replace floors/carpet around here? I am willing to drive to a surrounding city like Indy, Cinci.

    Thank You in advance.

    Don't know anyone that does it personally however have done a few myself. Get ya a couple sheets of Advantech, some outdoor carpet, and some 3M industrial spray glue. Can be done with very few tools (jigsaw, carpet knife, drill). Give it a shot and you will enjoy the reward of a nice finished boat more than if you paid someone to do it. Even if it isn't perfect lol.

    Do not use treated plywood

    either use marine plywood or regular plywood covered in fiberglass resin. Treated plywood will cause a reaction called galvonic corrosion & eat holes in an aluminium boat. Personally i'd still excapsulate marine plywood in resin & seal all holes where screws were.

    Good advice Les!
    Also there is marine plywood and then there is "marine plywood".
    If I were doing this I would call Lund to find out where to get good marine plywood.
    No treated plywood as mentioned anywhere in boat or trailer bunks. I used it and then took my aluminum sea nymph to the scrap yard a year later due to holes caused by the copper in the treated wood. I could write a book on chemical reactions in an aluminum boat! Almost went fiberglass but I guess I'm just an aluminum boat junkie.

    PS - also ask Lund about what type alloy/metal screws to use...or just have them send you some. Same for rivets. Dissimilar metals is a problem especially in damp areas. Add salt and it gets a much worse.
