Hi All,
I purchased a 1987 20' Bass Buggy last year.  It has been a real project.  So far we have stripped it down and going back with everything new except for the captains chair.  The previous owner said he re-decked it, but he used regular PT plywood.  Anyone looking to re-deck needs to know that if it isn't marine grade it will absorb water and become twice as heavy.  It also gets soft and it will rot.

I ordered the kit from Pontoon Stuff and finally got enough good weather to finish the deck.  We ordered the furniture yesterday and expect it to arrive sometime this week.  

We are setting it up more for fishing than anything else, but we will still get plenty of pleasure out of it.  I have an idea for the front portion where the pontoons stick out forward of the railing, but this will require another cross brace.  If anyone knows where I can get one please let me know.  I plan to go all the way across with a platform where we can mount a trolling motor and possibly place a live well.  It's just a thought going through my head at this point.  Currently I have put new wood and carpet in the original design.  Any thoughts on this are welcome.

I will also need at least 8' of deck trim if anyone has a piece laying around and wants to part with it.  Everyone wants to sell a minimum of 6 pieces.  

I am also looking for a new front plate for the engine cowl.  This would be for a Mercury Classic 50.

Some time in the near future I will figure out how to upload some pictures.
