im surprised it took this long for someone to ask

the purpose of the plywood is TWOFOLD.

1. when folded down, as in the photos, it provides a somewhat solid ramp to get on & off the boat at places that don't have piers in- aka- like everywhere now

so beach the boat, and the ramp will get you almost onto land, or at least into much shallower water.

2. this was a secondary thing, that just worked out hillariously... believe it or not, it provides some aero improvements at speed. the enclosure is basically a brick in the air, and this actually seemed to force air up & over the enclosure instead of right into it... which the good thing about that, is the enclosure doesn't get NEARLY beat the fuck up as it used to at 20-30mph going into 20-30mph winds.... and secondary benefit... boat actually improved top speed with the enlcosure up, and all the weight on it... the other "winter toon" mod was these 14 salt bags on the bow, to keep the bow from rising from weight in the back... keeps the boat able to plane out in less than 2 feet of water.



there is so much hillbilly engine nearing that goes into winter boating it's hysterical.
