Thinking of adding side boards to my frame. I have rowed frames with them and they do make things easier on people getting into and out of the boat and some additional storage areas.
For those that have them, marine grade plywood or diamond plate? I am guessing a significant weight difference with the DP being lighter. I can do the plywood myself, but I think I would have a local welding shop do the DP for me and weld it to my frame( NRS Bighorn that I have added to).
I used dens deck it's the material that gets reference to as cutting board material however it's not. It is a structural material that is used in play grounds ect. Easy to work with wood working tools strong and comes in multiple colors (mine is white with blue core). Diamond plate gets hot and wood splinters and requires maintenance.
I used kick rail for the inside of semi-trailers walls. Itís made to keep pallets and such from going through the trailer walls.Itís made of plastic and very easy to work with.I attached it with NRS u bolts and WW Granger flat allan head nuts.I hope the picture works just one I had on my phone!!
