    I am wondering if you can make a 2005 232 rinker cc into a br? Not worried about cost. Just need to know if it can be done. If the hull needs the bow deck of the cc for structural purpose?

    By br I'll assume you mean bow rider? In any case the deck cab on both accommodations layouts do contribute to the athwart and longitudinal loading issues of the hull. The bow rider deck cap has a lot of transverse stiffness built in to satisfy this requirement. If you are thinking about making your own, you should strongly think about these considerations as well as slamming loads at speed, while dreaming up your new forward accommodations layout.
