    yessir, thank you very much. that explains why so many are open at the top.. i did it yesterday, figured it made sense to leave the top open for various reasons. thank all ya'll for the info..

    I am no expert, but the direct "jar" that some waves/rollers can apply to a fiberglas boat can be terrible, even in the low traffic lakes we have in South Arkansas. German, by all your pics i have seen, it looks like you guys ride in high traffic, high wave activity lakes/rivers. With older glass, i would think it would be good for the boat to flex, and with the bulkhead not being attached at teh top, it gives room for at least part of the boat to move or flex. to me it seems like if you were to jump off the tailgate of your truck it would feel better to bend your knees to cushoin the blow, instead of leaving your legs locked. Who knows..when Tiger chimes in, he may call me a dumbass for saying that. it is always better to talk to the pros and ask alot of questions. If the majority of the original Youngbloods were not attached at the top, there is probably good reason.

    i have seen them glassed all the way around and just the sides and bottom.

    like TN said the Tx-19s have a lot of flex b/c of the wideness of the hull.

    i would tab it all the way but maybe thats just me.
    ya that makes the most sense but a lot of people seem to have theres done with the top open. i'm just trying to figure out the reasoning behind it and how the came originally. ya know..

    I'm not real sure, I had sum wood rott and replaced everything but It added alot of strength and stability to it.. Not real sure why Big A done it that way, never knew any different so I never thought anything about it. But I can tell you the boat is alot more stable now and doesn't flex like it used to
