    BoatinDad,

    Looks like you got everything you wanted. Looks like you got it sized pretty well
    Hows the control?
    Any idea where you will go from here?
    Keep looking for some cheap pedestal chairs like on a bass boat so you can sit up when you are fishing.

    Have you decided if you like lashing down the crossarms to the hulls?

    If you decide to make a solid deck, see if you can scrounge some broken ladders. Hang them fore and aft between the beams, and tie down a piece of 1/2" ply of plywood on top.

    Since you have kayaks, you can build a mount for them as a catamaran. there are youtubes and plans on internet for doing this and adding sails ect. Then you have double function boats and the storage is the same as you currently use. just a few poles and stuff extra.
