FISH hOUSE FLOOR REDO

4 posts in this topic

I am looking for input on how to put an insulated floor on to a frame which I hope to use to haul a 4-wheeler ? What is the best way to do this ? Only use 3/4" gt, no insultation. I have seen using a 1/2" layer, then 1.5" polystyrene & then another 1/2" layer, would this be strong enough ? Not worried about the frame, only the floor.

I used 3/4" green treated plywood for the bottom, then 1 1/2" pink foamboard on top of that, then 1/2" treated plywood for the top layer. When walking on the top the 1/2" has some give and cushion against the pink foam. I just built this this summer and have yet to get it on the lake.

If it's already "giving" with just walking on it, will it hold up to the atv ?

As long as the frame is solid, and the support beams aren't spaced too far apart, 1/2" treated plywood sandwiched over 1-1.5" insulation will be plenty.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
