I am build a raised deck on my duck boat. I have some 1"x1" 1/8 tube I will be using. The previous deck was made of steel and was two square frames with 8 support legs holding the top up. I am tring to make this light as possible so I am wonder if I were to just weld up the top square and then make the 8 risers and just have them rest on the floor rather than building another square to rest on the floor and weld the risers to. I was think I could weld in cross bar to help keep everything steady. Seems like there won't be much weight savings with the cross bracing.
