GF 16 - Installing Tackle Center in Rear Seat Frame

Can I install a Tackle Center like this:

in the rear seat frame (the vertical section, not the top of the seat), or will it weaken the structure?

Re: johnnemo GF16

I relocated my build outside for the messy stages. Per Joel's (shine) recommendation, I am using scrap pieces of ply to make my cleats. I used the table saw to cut 1.5" stips (I guess that's wide enough?) which will be double stacked. I will not have enough to make the rub rails, spray rails, o...

Re: Birmingham RB14

Congratulations on getting started. Posting updates on the forum motivates me to keep going - I can look back and see what I have accomplished and when I find myself on page 4 I know its time to get busy building. Good luck with the build.

Attaching sides to Mid Seat Frames - GF 16

I tried attaching the sides today and when I follow the plans and attach the sides on a level surface I found that the mid-seat frame I am attaching the sides to is 1/8" to 1/4" lower than the side panel. I guess this is because the side panel is angled and does not rest completely flush w...

Drain Holes for GF 16

What size drain holes are recommended for a GF16 for water to pass through the bottom of the bulkheads? Should I use 1/2 circles cut with a hole saw, or use a large hole bit and have the bottom of the circle be flush with the floor of the boat? Any pictures would be very helpful. Is it best to cut t...
