The term for an open runabout with an engine box (rather than being fully decked, with an engine hatch) is a "Utility".
Search the forum on "Utility" and you will find lots of discussion about utility options on various designs.
I think the Tahoe Utility question has been raised in the last week or so.
Thanks Bruce! Keywords are everything...
I think I could order the Monaco Utility supplement and glean enough design info to open the Tahoe up. I would agree with a post that suggests keeping the deck brace behind the seat (which the Monaco Utility has) or maybe double up a walk through frame behind the seat instead.
Thanks for the help
