I improved my removable deck by using some noodle material to shim up the coaming/deck joint and adding a rule to the deck to measure fish and to facilitate mounting my fish finder. Also note the two cut off detergent containers that straddle the saddle. Very easy, temporary, and “green” use of recyclables for handy storage of tackle, water, lunch etc. The noodle material is very handy for quick, temporary storage of hooks/lures keeping them from getting in trouble. The whole contraption easily lifts out and it just fits in place without any drilling or fastening to the hull. I could very easily fasten it to the boat if I cared to.
