Deck extension

Here's what I've been doing for the last few days. My dad didn't like standing on the back deck due to it being narrow and him being 63. So, I decided to help him out a little bit. Here is what I came up with for my lund. I might carpet the legs to make it look a little nicer, but it functions well! It doubled his foot space so I won't knock him off balance with the trolling motor!



Another view.

Pedro's not as fleet of foot these days, Junior?

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: Deck extension

No, he's not. After his back surgery last year, he just isn't the same. This should keep him up there with me for a while longer.

Re: Deck extension

It certainly is fancier than the contraption I made for the back of my old boat for musky fishing in Canada. All I had was treated 2X4's. It weighed a ton. But at least my buddy, Rob didn't have to try to perch himself on a little foot bench he took out of the cottage.

Re: Deck extension

Looking good Jack. Is that a fuel filter in the back right of the first picture?

Re: Deck extension

Yep. I had about a shot and a half of water trapped in there when I changed it last week. Well worth the money in my opinion.

Re: Deck extension

Junior, I had a musky rolling in front of me this evening on that flat I walleye fish on. It didn't want my jig and minnow or rapala. I've caught a couple smaller muskies in that bay over the years.

Re: Deck extension

The same one we used to fish? Eddie, the water seperator is a racor. There not cheap, but neither is engine parts.
