About a  year ago I bought a 1988 14' Carolina Skiff from my neighbor.  I added my own casting deck.  Below you can see some of the "before"  and "work in
progress" images.  Just wanted to share for those who may be thinking of doing something similar.

 

The 9.9 HP motor doesn't move it very fast, so I rarely go more than a mile from wherever I put it.  Since these pics, I added a 38 lb Minn Kota tiller
trolling motor to the bow.  

 

In addition to upgrading the motor, there are other things I plan to add in the near future.

For now, I'm enjoying the heck out it.

For sure.  Needing a place for tackle and other gear was a big motivation.

Great job and yes much needing storage. Never can get enough. I remember when a 20 hp motor on the lake was the stuff for the fisherman. The average was 9.9 / 10 and maybe a 15 hp.  Spent many a day on the water with a 10 HP.

Thanks.  Being so close to Leadvale, it would be a dream to upgrade to a 40 HP jet.
