That's good thinking. I shot out of a 1440 for the past 2 years. I've had 5 guys in it before. 3 up front and 2 in the back. Talk about no room. Lol. Upgraded to a 1648 for this season. Should be a lot more comfortable.
I believe they are just hollow aluminum. I've never had any though so Don will have to confirm.I got a metal transom and was thinking maybe wield a sheet wide enough to mount pods on. Also maybe having someone make my pods for me. Are they just hollow inside or do they have foam?
