Poly-deck

Anyone use a poly deck strapped down to frame for a captain seat? Wondering where I could purchase this. Figure I could put a drop bag below this deck and put a paco on top for the captain seat. Who sells these? Thinking like 50 x 20”

On my old 12' used to sit on a throw cushion that sat on a plywood deck, so essentially the same thing. It worked fine, you need to make sure your towers are adjusted accordingly. Most towers are sized for the rower to sit a little higher so you may need to cut them down etc.

DRE will cut you whatever size poly you want, router whatever slots you want etc. They also have some pretty sweet mounts that turn it into a flip hatch for easy open and close.

Get at least 5/8"-3/4" thick. 1/2" will flex over the span of a drop bag.

Below is the flip hatch fitting Zach B mentions. It was the end result of trying to find a better way. I was struggling with using hardware with webbing. Zach S brought in our favorite solutions guy, Earl Wiggert(sp?), and this is what he came up with. This eventually led to other precision machined innovations such rod holder mounts and Bimini mounts.

I purchased a pre-cut and routered piece from these guys and drilled holes with a hole saw for lashing points and used a jig saw to cut out the corners for the frame rails. I think i used a 1/4" roundover bit on both sides to soften the edges. 3/4" thick is a must for any span over 10" roughly. The flex of thinner material is annoying and can loosen straps

Ron,

Will that fitting allow for one to pull the hatch completely off for use as a table?
