Author Topic:   bow cushion extension platform

Hi Everyone,

I have a 2005 170. I am thinking of making a bow cusion extension platform that will sit inbetween the cooler and the bow cushion and provide a deeper lying down area.

I want to make it easily removeable and foldable. I was thinking about using the bridge table leg design(folding legs) and possibly chopping them to a shorter length. I would then mount that mechanism on a piece of starboard or wood. Then i'd use the cushion on my auxilary cooler or possibly even the cooler cusion that came with the boat.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Alan

Alan,

Here's a photo I took several years ago of a Nantucket while down in Florida. This was a brand new dealer's boat and had what appeared to be Starboard cleats fastened to the area around the step up in the bow. I don't know what these were for, but appear to support a deck extension of some sort. This would be good support for the forward part of your platform with legs at the back. Perhaps some Nantucket owners will comment.

After checking out the Nantucket (Outrage 190) page on the Boston Whaler website, it appears these cleats are part of the "sun pad" option on this boat - which is different than the "bow cushion" option.

Hi Steve,

Actually a sunpad is what i might consider. Cool idea about the cleats. Not sure how I'd fasten them to the insede wall since there may not be wood or starboard to have the screw bite into.

Thanks for the pics....gives me more ideas.

All the best,

Alan
