Attach tubes
Posted by Chris_Stout on Mar 10 2006
Mine is a fiberglass hull, and the tubes are screwed into the hull and removeable.  Not sure how they sealed it though, I haven't used the boat yet..  Just bought it.  What I would do if I was going to try this would be to make an aluminum hull with 3/4 high sides and transom(it should flaot itself) then remove the transom and the keel from the fabric boat (your making the hull the exact shape of the inside of your infatable of choice), then stick the metal boat inside of the inflatable.  Then see the best way to attach.  Probably use some of the floor currently on the inflatable, then glue another strip at the top of the sides of the aluminum instert and either screw or glue them on.  Sounds like a good project.  Lemme know if you run into a snag or when you finish it, love to see it.
