I Have an older (1961) Alumicraft Deep C
The boat is fantastic cutting through the water and very stable.
I really want to remove the middle seat so that I have more maneuverability within the boat. Would anyone know how, or would help, or someone I could pay to remove the middle seat? the boat is riveted and the bottom of the seat had a piece of metal that is riveted to the bottom all across the bottom of the boat. I'd like to cut off or break the rivets from the side, but actually just cut the metal at the height of the bottom metal stringers so I wouldn't have to fix all of those rivets on the bottom of the boat. I'd like to put in a metal floor with foam underneath so I'll never have to worry with any rot or anything.
Please let me know if you'd like to help, or I could pay you to help!

Please Call or text Jake at 256-541-0302

Can text or email pics if this would help! Thanks!

The boat will flex more. Then it will leak.

The seat keeps boat rigid.

I you take it out you will have to add some alum to make it strong.

Thanks for the input.
I plan on putting in ribs where I take the seat out. Also, I'll plan on putting in an aluminum floor. Really, I wanted to see if anyone had experience in this, or knew about how much it would cost to get a welder to perform the duty!
Thanks for any info!
