Is it possible to change the canvas bottom to self bailing? How would you do it? This is a 12' raft.

To get an effective and accurate answer you will likely have to provide make/model/year as they will affect any potential solution. People cut out bucket floors and replace with self baling floors but designs vary so much as to make a universal answer difficult or useless. You will also have to think about cost as a new floor can be expensive/

I think if you provide more explicit options someone with more experience may chime in to help.

It is possible. That old boat looks pretty sun beat from what I can see. Good chance it isnt worth it unless you wanted a project and could find a used floor that would work for cheap.

The low end cost for a self bailing conversion professionally done at my shop is around $1700. The high end can be $3500. The amount of labor going into it varies as does the price of a floor. If you wanted to try it yourself, new floors alone run from $800 to $2500+.
