Bought a 1448 recently. Painted it over a week and built the deck today. I was going to build a light steel deck but the cost backed me up. I had wood lying around so I opted to go that route for a season or two.

I built it in two pieces that can be easily removed and are attached to each other by 2 lag screws. The deck is pinched in place and can't move but isn't actually attached to the boat. I hinged the rear sections for storage and battery placement.

Looks good man. With it being a 1448 you may want to put your batteries in the back. I have a 1648 with a 25 horse on it and have 4 batteries and a 6 gallon fuel tank in the back and with 2 200 pound guys and a barrel of fish we still lift the back of the boat out of the water

Now I have to get one more battery to run the troller. I'm running the lights 24v and we'll see if the 50's last. I might as well cover the back now, it's all batteries and gas tank LOL

Looks good, clean lookin job u did on there!
just be careful. I killed a lot of fish out of my 1448, but I also almost put it on the bottom of the river a few times too from making bad decisions.
