    Re: 2004 14’ Klamath question

    My son has the same year boat and we did the same thing. We removed the styrofoam from the rear and added hinges to make storage. We also added a front casting platform with a locker door and moved the battery to the front. Everything works great. Now I have to ask my 16 year old if I can borrow his boat to go fishing?!?!

    Thanks you guys. I popped the rivets and sure enough, flotation. Lots of flotation. Took it out and now designing the lid to close.

    Thinking about the weight thing Jet Spray.

    Any modifications to a vessel has it's drawbacks. The biggest is weight added to the boat. Keep in mind anything you add to the vessel brings it closer to the overall weight it can handle by design. If I add my weight 320 lbs and my kickers weight to the mix that is 520 without any gear, my boats limit is 750 lbs guess what I can maybe carry one other person and some gear......Jetspray

    Your suspicions are correct. A word ofvadvice though. If its a tiller and you decide to put a battery back there put your fuel tank as far forward as you can. It makes for a better ride in the waves.

    I had a 15’Klamath years ago and yes there is foam flotation in there.

    Any hoses or wires coming out of those boxes? An 1/8" drill will quickly remove those rivets to reveal what's in there.

    2004 14’ Klamath question

    Greetigs fellow Sniffers

    I have a new to me 2004 14’Klamth. Behind the rear bench set I have a neat square box on each side of the boat. Of course its the perfect place for a battery and other storage. The removable lids are pop riveted closed. I suspect they may contain flotation. Does anyone know what is inside?

    Thanks

    Just George
