The return behind it is very shallow, so thats as much meat as I could leave at the bottom. It does seem at first look like it is plenty strong enough. If it does show sign of deforming, a plastic welder as you say can sort it easily. Or attach an aluminium plate to the face of it to spread the load.

I have just had Penguin Sea & Surf/NZ Outdoor Gear make me a customized insulated bag to fit under my seat in my Smartwave 4200.  I gave them the measurements and it has worked out perfectly.  Think it worked out to be about 70L in volume from memory.
I also gave them the measurements for the spaces under the two stern corner seats and had insulated bags made up in there as that is where I plan to store ice/bait as well.

sorry for late reply, here are a few pics of the small bags for the back seats.  The space under the seat actually tapers down, so the bags also taper down. 
 
another addition I got done was a canvas cover on the centre console to keep all the battery and electrics dry from the salt spray.  it just domes on.

Very cool mate, you think the center console cover is worthwhile? I think ill do something similar to what you've come up with.

I have not used it yet so not sure how much of a requirement it is/will be, but in principal I think it will be beneficial, even if just to provide some additional dry storage area.
Like you I am just setting the boat up for use.  Also had a full road cover made for it,  as I plan to tow it on a few gravel roads so helps keep things much cleaner inside.
 
Another change I made was I found that the seat squab would soak up water if it got wet through the stitching.  Then when you sat on it, water would come out of the stitching. So I got a bit more foam put on top and had it recovered, so now it will stay dry and has a bit more comfort too.
 
Just got the electronics to go in now and then it will be all ready!

No engine cover? at least cowling.
Keeps driving rain from going in the vents while parked up.

Hi BKB,
Found the T Top good, as increases the number of hand holds, as I a reasonable size and getting around the front is now easy.
Provides good shade in the summer.
The rod holders are a bit naff, and plastic, also I am 6'2" and the are at head height.
The boat is set up for straylining in the muddy Kiapara.
Cheers

I have a mate that has a smartwave 4.6cc??
He has brought it after selling his 6.5m ali
Due to Retirement and not being able to afford the running costs of the 6.5 also struggling with Launch and retrieve in his older age

He loves it I think he has a tohatsu 40hp on it
I haven’t been on it yet but have run beside it and it rides very nice
keep up the good work boys
