Flatacraft dashboard removal?
I've sort of inherited a 4m Flatacraft.
Tried to attach a pic but not sure yet if I've done it right!
The back to back seats have been removed and replaced with 2 bench type. It was run with a 15hp 2 stroke tiller control motor.
I want to use it for fishing with 2 people but room is a little tight due to the covered in bow section.
What I'd like to know is if I cut out the dashboard to increase the inside space, and opened it up to the bow, will the boat be weakened. I'd keep the tiller motor.
I really like the boat. It's got character but I really need more interior space.
Any ideas would be really appreciated.
Thank you for any thoughts.
