Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

I sold"Dead Phish" and purchased a larger boat to fish out on the Saginaw Bay. I plan to do another project in the spring. I would start this Winter but eye surgery has slowed me down for now. I have however added a stereo, depth finder, seats, rod holders and interior lights (not in picture).

Worked on my sons 14 flat bottom this weekend. I hope he likes it. I still have to bolt things down and tweek some panels to finish things off but the 90 degree weather slowed me down.

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Well I have been using my rig and have enjoyed it and harvested my share of fish. I am helping my son do a few mods to his 14' jon. He is very busy with a family, job and school so I grabbed his rig and started in on it. I do not (shame on me) have before shots but here is where I am at with his. My...

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Hi th30dd7, There are visible screws that hold down the carpeted panels and some are hard to see because the carpet (20 oz.) is quite thick and the screws get buried in it. I did use those stainless finish washers to avoid the screws from getting buried too deep but the carpet hid it well. I also pl...

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Hi assaultcraft8993, I boxed in both sides so I did not put those support arms back on an it is fine. Keep in mind I left the outside of each bench and then ran supports from the front to the back and that stiffened it up. I have done this a few times and have not had any structural issues. The side...

Hi simbelle,
Thank you for the kind words. They mean a lot coming from you. As you know it takes patience and attention (both I have issues with) but the result is very rewarding. I used this site for inspiration and ideas. Now it is time to reap the rewards, I am going fishin'! Fish On!

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Hi arrowlauncher, Thank you. I tried out the transom saver last weekend and it worked great. FYI...The trailer attachment is a black pipe cap that I bolted to the middle rear roller bracket. I then screwed a 3" long nipple into that. Because the nipple O.D. was a very tight fit to the I.D. of the pi...

Golf cart hardtop on my 15ft Jon?

I guess when you think about it I see golf carts being pulled down the road, in excess of 70 MPH, on trailers all summer long without problems. If you have it secured to the boat like they do on a golf cart and you strap your boat securely to the trailer that should not be an issue. As far as runnin...

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

I can't wait any longer...I will go in search of an open ramp so I can shake this rig down. I banged out a transom saver so I don't drag the motor on drives and speed bumps.
