    Yah...small boats need to be versatile , so gear must be removable.

    A comfy seat is a nice detail for fishing.

    I'm sure if you keep scratching your head , sleep on it a few days, you can come up with something strong and removable.

    Well I managed to finish the boat,I went with a simple design for the fishing seat,
    Seams to be strong enough,
    inside painted with some truck bed liner.

    Outside painted with epoxy enamel.

    Rows real easy and I'm really enjoying it.

    Weighed in at 128lbs light enough I can store it against my garage wall.I'm able to remove and drag it into my back lane and load it on my roof rack of my truck by myself.

    Allready thinking of a bigger one.
