does that mean it takes alot of time???? thats y i have been putting it off for 3 months at least... Does ur boat tend to lean if u get alot of weight on one side of the deck. My deck is similar where it comes out past sides and i was wondering if float pods in back would helkp to stop it from leaning as much

Joe, float pods just help you carry a bit more weight toward the back. If your leaning is side to side, pods won't help. That's why most decks don't overhang the gunnels. Get a few big guys on there and you're just asking to sink the boat.

My troller shaft was a lot of hard work.I don't think the average person could do what had to be done in the garage.The boat has some lean when just 1 person is in it.It is only 6in. over the side.We were on the Mississippi Sat. and had no problem at all.It handled great and I am very pleased with the whole project.
