    Thank you for your comment it’s much appreciated. A lot of thought time and sweat equity went into the project. After considerable research I could not find much information on Seadek or gator step for this model LSV or similar years so I just pulled the trigger and did it I would like to help others with information on this up grade. First I was totally unable to get a hold of Gatorstep having said that my Seadek representative was the absolute best in every way knowledge helpful professional easy to contact and prompt to return calls. I will likely post this information with pictures in more than one part please bear with me I’m not very good with tech

    Default 06 LSV Seadek install

    Obviously I began by removing the carpet to my terror I saw the wonderfully designed fuel tank cover (sarcasm). And think what did I do and how can I put it back. Stop side comment My one hour project is just 1 broken bolt from a 3 day nightmare B45FF8E6-F3F0-4D79-911F-66144803005C.jpgA2B474CD-A6F0-4424-8F69-81460219DAB3.jpg. Notice the fuel tank tank cover is in 2 pieces and without the carpet you can and will see the fuel tank (not ideal for Eva foam) how do you make that look good. Off to the weld shop. At this point I’m not going to get overly technical you or your welder should do your own measuring D2EEDA44-82A5-46CF-8DD2-4D1FF1090020.jpgE7F891DC-1473-48BB-9AAC-9861538CA3DA.jpg. These are photos first of the panels welded together then the welds ground away and all joints filled with a body filler to create one smooth floor panel. You should also add to the width of the locker door

    A quick photo of the locker door6B56E637-4C3C-4E6A-8757-0A79BA104C74.jpg. Please observe the added aluminum angle on the door to narrow the gap. Now both the locker door and floor panel had all the welds ground smooth then sanded with smooth (final sanding 220 paper). Next primed with self etching primer then the body filler another coat of self etching primer then filler primer and finally 3 coats of color. The other part of this project is the boat I sanded and filled imperfections in the floor applied 5 coats of gel coat wet sanded and buffed80D000B6-64E0-4612-AA55-922C5CA04E32.jpgDAF698D2-8465-47E5-B73F-29E4C7A7804C.jpg17D68AD4-4EEA-478D-AB4F-9CCB65A4ED70.jpg. After installing locker door and the floor panel complete with screwing panels in place I caulked all the way around the (tank cover) floor panel and the perimeter of the floor with marine grade caulking.

I have to say my wife had her doubts similar to Jonny Cash’s wife had when she stared at the “psycho Philly Cadillac” and said honey take me for a ride. Seriously if anyone has questions please reach out to me. I can certainly email better pictures. My desire was for the boat to look as if the Seadek was “OEM”

    Just incredible work. I think your results have inspired me to do my floor next off season!

    Dude that floor was improved just with the painting you did before the EVA went down! Very Nice!

    I want to thank everyone for the positive feedback it means a lot. Also I need to give credit to castaway Custom’s although I did most of the labor they cut routed and laid the EVA. If I could rate castaway Custom’s here they would receive 5 stars
