i have put a floor in my old 16ft. starcraft..i used 5/8`s plywood and just 1 2x4 right down the center...had to bevel it a little. it lasted 10 years with just rugular plywood...i just redid it a couple of weeks back but this time i used treated plywood...they have a marine grade plywood which im sure would be best...my boat sat out year round uncovered.indoor/outdoor carpeting is what i used ..i was able to reuse the carpet cause it was still good enough..hope this helps you a little.

Thanks for the help. Mine is also a starcraft but how did you do the bow of the boat? Thanks again for the help.

i started from the back of the boat with an 8ft. sheet.. then i measured from the edge of that sheet up to the bow....then i made a line down the middle of the second sheet...then i went in the boat and started measuring the width it needed to be about every six inches...then i marked the second sheet and cut it with a jig saw.

Anyone else have any tips on how to put in compartments in under the floor, like say a livewell? Also what is the best type of floor covering to use? Thanks again for any help.

If you like carpet, Menards or Fleetfarm have marine carpet at a decent price.
Otherwise you can cover it with fiberglass and leave it easier to clean, but it's a tough job to have leveled even and add some grooves to make it not slippery.

You might want to check your fuel tank, while floor is out, they tend to go bad or leak. Livewells are tought to figure out, but if you want some, I have a variety of them, I can send pics.

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.
    • Manafort was dumped quicker than a cheap date.   #pence2018
    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?    
    • You dont care about his statements on the 2nd amendment or his ties with radical mooslims as you put it?  
    •   I don't reside in his district and have no power to vote for or against him so I don't spend much of my free time thinking about him.
    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
