I know that we dont all have big rigs so lets see those jon boats. show us how you have it set up for you. I have added spay in liner. ( 2 gallons ) floor to mount my seat, 2 driftmaster 4 rod T bars. MK maxium 40, 6 vertical rod holders on the side and 2 on the front to hold the rod while I am tieing on or unhooking a fish. 2 bass pro 185 deep cycle battery's 1 for the tm and one for electronics and lights. 1 Matrix 17/gps and 1 peice od $%#$ for the back when I am running. 4 hangers to hold my jig boxes, still got a few things to do but its getting there, maybe some other pics will help me finish it up.

Talk to Pan Man on the Virginia board. He rigged out a jon boat one time. I think he has a web site with some pics. CF

I like that old Evinrude on your boat Cody. I have a identical sized 2006 Alumacraft 1436. It's rigged with a Johnson 8hp motor and a MK Endura 40 trolling motor. I have a '67 Mercury 9.8hp motor for it once I get the fuel systems woes straightened out.

I love this ole boat. She ain't fancy but she works like a horse.

She even treats the kids good.

Cody,
I read your post when I fixed my old boat up I used some stuff called lucabond (don't no if I spelled that right) this is very strong and is a lot lighter than plywood and won't rot. You could even use old street signs if you no where to get some, the street departments around here will usually give us the old ones.That lucabond is like 2 pieces of sheetmental with foam in the middle compressed down to about an 1/8 of an inch, every strong and works great. If you us wood down the road you will be doing it again it will rot over time I already went threw it. Good fishen

I love my jon boats. I really like starting with a clean surface and customizing the way that I see fit. I've done two remodels. One is a scullin' boat for shallow bruspiles and the other a slo-trollin' boat. I must give credit to all those pics, such as these in this thread, for the ideas that I thought that I needed.

I posted this a little while back. There's lots of pics, so I won't repost here. 1st post is the scullin' boat, and the other boat follows it in the thread.

i know exactly what you are talking about. it's called "alucobond"

finding a source for it might be a little tough around here and it's probably kinda pricey. but on the other hand, it will probably live longer than the boat. so it may be money well spent. i'll definately look into it.

Cody,

I see you are from Ottumwa, Iowa. Since that is where "Radar" the character in M*A*S*H was from, is there a lot of stuff portraying him around the town?

I think this stuff is similar to what you are talking about.

Alpolic (they make this stuff at the plant my brother used to work at) GOOD STUFF!
