Need some feedback on the pros and cons of making changes to my boat. I want to draft less water but find that I also want to carry more stuff! Something's gotta give, so what thoughts/experiences do y'all have on the subject? 1-Boat Floor: I've got a floor in my 15 ft. duckboat that's 1/2 inch oudoor plywood. Is it worth keeping in there? About the only plus for the moment I can think of is I like to lay down for a while in the boat and need a flat surface 2-Gun box: The gun box takes up a third of the width of floor space I have. I'd like to get rid of it to make more room, but where would I keep the running lights, life jackets, fire extinguisher, extra ropes, gloves, tools, 12v. battery and junk? 3-Transom weight: I figured the difference in weight between my 25 hp Johnson and the new 25 Kohler Mud Buddy, but I didn't figure in a full 6.5 gallon tank and 12v battery back there. If I trim down all this weight, is it worth it?
