Re: floorboards for PortaBote............
- I second the opinion about David Cheetham's floorboards. They raise the comfort level of the bote to a much higher level, and look fabulous. I made my own cap, but might consider his version in the future.

> I have had my Bote for a few years, and totally love it! But, the only thing that I was a little "uncomfortable" with was the "mushy" floor. I am not a huge guy (6'1"/235 lbs), but I just didn't like the "feel" when moving around in my Bote. Anyway, I read a post about some floorboards made by a guy named David Cheetham. So, I contacted David, and ended up with not only a beautiful set of floorboards for my 12' Bote, but also a great bow "cap" for it! David is not only a great guy to deal with, but also a fine craftsman. He produces one of the finest "aftermarket" products that I have seen.
> I would have included some pics of my Bote and floorboards, however, my digital camera recently decided to quit working. There are some pics of his floorboards in the "photos" area of this group. I promise that you will NOT be disappointed if you get a set of his floorboards, or anything that he makes for that matter.
