How are you going to rebuild it.
To what point are you going to rebuild the rib? Do you have any pics of it?
I am trying to figure out the best way to get two comfortable seats in mine. My wife said unless I can get it more comfortable she's not going in it. I think it's because i hit a good size wave last year with her in it and almost lost her overboard. Kind of a two edged sword, not being mean but it's nice to get away from everyone for awhile and go fishing with no one araround.
