    Have any of you added storage hatches to a Jon boat such as a Tracker ? I hate how little storage/ if any there is in factory Jon's. I'm going to be picking up a boat in the next few weeks and wanted to cut & add storage bins & hatches into the front deck and bench. Before I do I thought I'd get some feedback and suggestions.

    If you've done something like this and have some tips or ideas please post up.

    Thanks

    Simply add foam below the floor boards to replace foam removed if its a lot. Sq inches to Square inches.

    I added storage in the rear pods of my 1860. I put the batteries and life vest in one side and two 6 gallon fuel tanks in the other.
