I decided that I needed a new filet table for the boat. The old one wasn’t in the best shape and after last year’s Fall Classic it proved to be too small (after all size IS important, no matter what she tells you…)
The old board was approx. 29”x 14” and was mounted on a single Magma swivel mount.
In order to accommodate a larger filet station I would need 2 mounts. I went 54”x 18”, hopefully the Kooks that actually kill fish on my boat won’t shame me when they cut fish on my cute little cutting board. The rod holders in my transom are 35” apart which caused some concern of sagging. I decided to use a ¾” base to reduce the risk with ½” back splash and sides. After assembly and a test fit I was still concerned with it flexing so I added a section of Aluminum 1/2" angle to beef it up.
I’m not the best woodworker and had to bum a tablesaw from my neighbor, but I’m satisfied with the results.
