2008 1432 Alumacraft Jon Boat (Mini Mod)

When we cut the foam (half the foam still in the bench compartment), we cut it so the batteries were tight when seated... they can't really move up or down very easily. But your comment about when trailering got me thinking that you had a point... one good pot hole and there might be a chance that t...

2008 1432 Alumacraft Jon Boat (Mini Mod)

Was watching your walk around video and the one thing I noticed was your battery compartment - you've got the two batteries in there but then you have an aluminum hatch over them. I didn't see any tie-down straps so there is nothing in there to keep them from bouncing if you hit a pothole or someth...

2008 1432 Alumacraft Jon Boat (Mini Mod)

Whats up fellas! Been a minute since I've last posted here. Wife and I had our first baby girl this March and she is nearing 4 months old. Since the last time I posted, I bought a 20' Wellcraft V20 Fisherman Center Console with a Johnson 225 Outboard. So my Tin Boat days were put aside with this fib...

Convert Bench Into Battery Compartment (1432 Alumacraft Jon)

1970 Cherokee V-Hull project

First of all, GREAT post and pictures! But since you are about to do a second one, I thought I'd mention a couple of things I see... One big thing I thought should be mentioned, is that you should not mount speakers facing UP. If it rains when you are out there, the speaker cone fills with water, a...

Also, does anyone know of a good way to reduce glare on a fishfinder? it was near impossible to read my display yesterday without shadowing it with my hand. I've seen screen protectors for them... but didn't know if someone else had a better way to view the screen in direct sunlight. thanks!

I took the boat out yesterday and this little TM mount i built is extremely tough! I drove 45 minutes to get to Stone Mountain Lake down here in Atlanta and no problems with bumps in the road. fished for about 5 hours on the lake and the positioning of the mount was perfect for my little jon. It's a...

2008 1432 Alumacraft Jon Boat (Mini Mod)

Had some time to progress on a mount i designed for my bow mounted trolling motor. I picked up a Minn Kota Edge 45lb thrust from a guy on craigslist that replaced it with an ipilot on his tracker. Once i got home i was very confused as to how to install the thing on my boat. After looking at differe...

'96 or '97 OMC Outboard??

Does anyone know what type of motor this is?? The guy selling it says it's a 140hp OMC Outboard. It is currently attached to a 1996 Sportcraft 17' Center Console. Thanks in advance for any feedback provided!
