Post your jon boats

Recommended Posts

My grandpa got a 14 footer and I was wondering if you all could post some pics so we can get some ideas on pimping it out. Thanks.

i decked it, carpeted it, made a console, put on a 25hp johnson, did remote steering and throttle. if you got any questions about anything, i can help you with how to do it to your jon.

i wouldnt recommend you getting a 25hp, its rated for 7hp. i had to put in tons of transom work to make it safe to have such a huge motor, and it sits low in the water, so i need to get a bilge for it and everything. its fine for me becasue im a gear head and need everything fast, but for a 15 year old(or any average guy really), a 10hp would be more manageable...

That looks great. Right now my grandpas hesitant to do anything to much because it will violate the one year warranty. Decking is probably all we'll be able to do.

what the hell do you need a warranty for on a 14ft tin can? whats the worse that a warranty could even cover on a basic aluminum boat? a broken rivet maybe? lol

what is your jon made by?
