    I decided to build an elevated platform after fishing off the stock deck on my 1872 SeaArk (just built a lightrail around the deck and called it good) and decided I wanted to be just a little bit higher. The deck im building now is with 1x1x1/8 alum tubing and 1/8"thick diamond plate that sits 15" high.

    Its coming along pretty good. Have had a few days off and gotten some stuff done. Last night got the deck mounted on the boat. One set of lights should be here today. Hope to get the troller mounted tonight. Once i get all the lights (27w on top rail and 50W under the deck) ill fab up the top light rail. and hope to be on the water SOON
