Gotcha. I ask not to criticize, but because I need to make some sliders pretty soon and was just worried about it. What thickness are you planning on for your belly pan?

You'll be fine. Your frame is solid.
I'm going to do a tube design and some aluminum plate. I don't know what thicknes yet. 3/16" on the boat sides. If I was just going to do something simple which I might do. I would just use 3/16".
