My old boat came back to me last weekend

Recommended Posts

This is a jon boat I once owned, gave to a friend, then came back for a second chance. Although she is very rough (sat outside for 5+years), I have made a promise to make her over into a small water fishin machine!!!LOL

Like always the road to recovery is a long one, so wish me luck.

When I'm done I'll post pics of the "process"

Raul, that is a nice rig.

My plans are simple:

Decking for the front and sides with gray carpet

Mettalic silver paint to match my truck

Tiller style trolling motor (still to buy)

One pedestal seat(still to buy)

5 horse motor

At some point I would like to buy a trailer for it.

I am still in the paint prep stage,I will post some pics later .

d**n! thats cool !!

what type of boat is that?

Carbon fiber seagull wing bottom hull, reason why it comes equipped with a 15 HP even though it 's only 12 ft. But you can do that with a 12 ft jonboat with a 10 HP.  ;)

Hey dadto4

I have a boat similar to that but mines 14' and the bench in the middle is actually a huge livewell, when you post pics will you put some detailed ones of how you deck it?  I want to deck the front of mine but not sure how to get started.  Thanks
