confused about painting

Jeff's Jon Boat Conversion

You could use a fastener that will tie directly to the top of the rib. This is a pic of how I attached my 2x2 braces. They went through the floor into the rib. You could also attach them with two simpson L-brackets like I used to attach the top of the 2x2's in the picture to the underside of the dec...

1956 Evinrude Modification

Not sure about the 56' 10hp but I did a fuel pump conversion with at 58' Johnson 18 hp. I just took off the bypass cover and fuel pump for the 66' 20hp and put it on the 58' 18 hp and never had a problem.

Ideas on how to improve TinBoats

How about a separate section under boats for the following type posts:

"Is this boat a good deal?"
