How to Build a Deck Extension for a Bass Boat
If you own a bass boat and want to add a deck extension, there are a few steps you should take. The first step is to sketch a design for the deck, including any changes you want to make. You can add storage lockers to the sides of your hull and in the bilge. Once you have a general idea of what you want to do, you can buy the materials you need. You shouldn’t spend more time than you need. Small boats should have a foredeck that is low enough to prevent the boat from tipping over.
Once you have a design and the dimensions of your deck, you can start cutting plywood. To cut plywood to the desired shape, you can use a circular saw. You can make it smaller if it doesn’t fit. Bass boat decks are not level. They are sloped to the aft to drain water and trim stern-down when in water. Consider how your bass boat will be used in water or on a trailer before you cut the plywood.
