Re: not broke?

Haven't built a 17, yet. On two LTs I did a few years ago, I moved the aft bulkhead back 3" to strenghthen the rear deck and give some room behind the seat which I find quite handy.
I then installed two sprung stiffeners fore and aft of the hatch, which I later doubled up for more stiffness. Thinking about doing this on the foredeck also (my decks are unglassed). Wish now I had glased the deck also.
