I think you've already made up your mind, you're just asking for permission.

I, myself wouldn't do what you are planning on, but you don't need my permission. You already know this, but it's up to you. You (and your passenger) are the ones who will pay the price if things go wrong.
Well I'm seeing what you guys would say I'm new to boating and I dident want to rip the back of my boat off but looks like im ok

Congrats jonboatman. I think you should share pictures as our collective reward for helping out with your ponderings.
Best wishes many happy times on the water.

Kudos, way to get it on the water. Before you know it you'll be fixing another one up. This boating bug is very addictive.

I think you did a fine job young man, now get that boat in the water and start enjoying the local creeks and small water areas in your area.

I have a feeling this is the start of a lifetime obsession. Boating is a great way to spend time and experience life. To me, fishing kinda goes hand in hand with it. My boys have a blast with our 8' Livingston boat, so much so that we are starting an 11' plywood on frame boat next month in the garage. Building it with them will be my treat, launching it in a smallish local river will be theirs.
