Very nice build. Got your storage and casting platform.

That's alot of 3/4 plywood.  I assume this is for small ponds/lakes cus that 6hp probably won't move that thing much and the river would be tuff

I did mine once using untreated trying to save some weight. I slapped about 5 coats of varnish on it lol. It lasted about 9 years and only rotted because i did not tarp it the last few years in the winter. If that is stored inside it would last a lifetime

That 6 horse moved this boat and my two rather large cousins up the river at a nice clip.  A smaller trolling motor that used to be on my bass boat trolled all day long up the river, so this trolling motor should do me well.

Of course I am talking the Kank.

I sealed the wood first before I used it.  With it just being a summer boat for the river, and being stored indoors, I think it will last a long time.  Heard too many bad things about treated lumber and aluminum boats not mixing too well.  Wasn't buying marine grade lol.

Green treated plywood is extremely corrosive to aluminum, WISE CHOICE. Regular exterior grade ply and marine use the same glues, the only difference is marine grade has no voids. Marine grade ply will rot just as fast as exterior if left un-sealed.

Are you planning on putting an extension on the tiller handle or can you comfortably reach it the way youve got it setup. Im contemplating building a tiller extension for a boat im doing thats similar layout as yours.
