So I've been eyeing my roommates 12.5 foot aluminum boat all winter. Today he sold it to me. I want to make it more fishing friendly first by building a casting deck up front. Has anyone tried this? What other modifications have you made to you little boat to make it more fishing friendly? I'm definately going to paint it camo for duck hunting and I'd like to do some other things to make it more comfortable. It's rivited, which is a downfall but I got it for next to nothing and I already have a motor so this is a low budget thing.
