The turtle deck has a flange around the front perimeter. Once lined up and clamped in place holes are drilled thru the body and the flange and then bolts and nuts along with large flat body washers are used to retain in place. If desired some customers also fiberglass the deck to the body for a smooth transition.

The deck lid has an inner and outer for strength and the area of the hinges and latch is reinforced. There is no floor and this is up to the installer as to location height wise that a fiberglass floor would be installed.

This turtle deck will work with our 23 T-bucket body. With the extra length of the turtle deck a frame extension may be considered for extra support.
