I sure hope things turn out well for you and your new boat...if you ever see it.

I love your set up! I am trying to replicate it on a 15' NRS boat I just got with a 94" straight tube section. If it is easy.... what are the widths of your bays? Still love the set up / anything you regret? Thanks

Had a little free time on Memorial Day, so I decided redo my sideboards with Polymax (technically VersaPad, it's cheaper). I had some old galvanized fence rail (1 3/8") sitting around, so I opted to grab some fence fittings that fit over the NRS pipe to create a dual rail setup to support the decks. I had to shim the decks over the fence rail since it's thinner than the NRS pipe, but all told, I'm happy so far. I'm 180lbs, and holding tools and a beer brought me to about 195, and I can stand in the center of the longest span with just a little flex. They're only zip tied down right now, I haven't figured out a solution to connect them that I'm 100% happy with, yet, but a few more beers in the garage should bring about that stroke of genius soon enough.

Just use some cam straps to secure it to the frame for now. That probably end up being the easiest in the long run anyway. You could use stainless "U" bolts flipped upside down to keep the exposed hardware underneath but I think that would be PITA to install. my 2 cents. good luck

Straps are probably going to end up being the answer, I just need to snag some 1 footers, or some cheapies to cut down.

I Pop-riveted my Poly-Max. It takes really long rivets.

I laced my Polymax with tubular webbing. It takes a few beers but I had it lying around and it is solid.
