    Default another floor makeover




    didn't want to highjack WindWalkers thread. I pulled the carpet out of the TX-19. Tried some adhesive remover I got at Ace. It takes the glue right off but you can't leave it on too long cause it will attack the resin. I just use a bondo spreader to scrape off the glue, then wipe it down with lacquer thinner. Will post more when I finish.

    I just pulled the floor out of my 19 and weighed it.

    33.5 lbs. I'm not going to put it back in. It doesn't sound like that much, but when you lift it's pretty darned heavy. 3/4" plywood resin coated (mostly) and carpeted.

    I would put a brass sleeve in the hole, then a plug. Thats what I'm gonna do it I keep the sub floor. Haven't decided yet. If I cut out the sub floor where am I gonna put the ICE CHEST?

    The "V" in the bottom cradles the precious ice chest very nicely. Actually less prone to tippage and slipage. Keeping it well stocked (weight) helps as well.

    33.5 lbs! Couldn't believe how heavy that stinkin piece of plywood was. Why..........that's about the weight of a 40 qt ice chest stocked with river pops and ice..

    two more reason why i dont like the sub floor is becaus one i never know how much water is in the boat so im always just guessing on bilge on or off and two i cant see whats in the water, such as gas or oil if i were to spill a leak i would want to know about it FAST! not after pulling up to shore after a run

    Cut out the subfloor & made a new front bulkhead. Subfloor weighed 58 lbs.
