I usually run a fat sack on both sides of the engine cover in my SN 2001. Someone is usually leaning on the engine cover and watching people ride. So I want to make some hard cases for fat sacks that people can lean on- making a rear facing couch... if that makes sense.
Here is a ghetto paint file of what I am thinking. The red is the engine cover, the yellow are boxes for fat sacs and the green is the rear cushion that came with my boat.
So my questions,
- Is there any reason this is a terrible idea? Yes people would have to walk on the boxes, but I think it would be easier than walking on fat sacks.
- If I make a new engine cover can I just use plywood and 2x4s? Or do I run a risk of fire?
- Any ideas for noise insulation for engine cover?
