    Default TX19 deck

    they deck on my TX19 has a dip in it. It is a lightweight hull, should I fix the dip or ride with it. I really DO NOT want to crawl under the deck and glass a brace in.

    Does it have a bulkhead under the deck, or is that what mean when you said you dont want to glass a brace in?

    Take a pair of wood skis. Put one underneath the sag and one upright to brace it up. Wrap some LED lol rope lights around it.

    Funny thing! When I was in the market for a CP I looked at a light 18er. From the photos it had the same dip in the bow, I ask what the deal was ( because I hadn't seen in person) I was assured it was a optical illusion. Lol.

    Optical illusion my a$$! I have seen at least three original TX's that have this dip or wave to them. Most of them were light layups or had wood removed up front to cut the fat. If you have the time, I would say fix it, it looks tacky when someone spends all the time and money to restore one and then doesnt fix something like that.

    just take a big inner tube, put it up under there and add air. no weight gain, provides additional floatation, cheap and problem fixed.

    I was thinking about adding some floatation to the nose, thats one way to do it.

    I am a perfectionist most of the time, and looking out across that deck and seeing a dip may bug the piss out of me, however if the motor is thumping the entire deck may be vibrating so I might not notice.....
