Maritime Skiff
I completely rebuilt my Maritime skiff back in 2017 - 2018, new stringers with closed cell foam, extra glass on internal side of the hull, and a 18 gal fuel tank. I ended up putting in a new bow platform to mirror the standard maritime skiff bow platform but this year I decided I would change it up a bit so I could put in a swivel rod holder for tuna fishing.

I only have pictures of the finished results (it's fairly rough - its a quahog / pogie skiff) but I glassed in two 2x4's flush underneath were the bow platform sits for extra support. Sealed them both with two coats of epoxy. The platform its self has two layers of chopped strand mat and a third layer where the rod holder / cleat is. The ply for the platform is 3/4 in ply. Over all its sturdy as a Mfer. Very happy with the extra deck space. Girlfriend isn't happy with her lost lounging space... Never can win.
