Help with Coleman Crawdad floor.

I got a lil crawdad this week and took it out this morning. First off I love the boat. Its plenty lightweight to handle and my lil minkota 30 pushes it along a lot better than I thought it would. Gonna have to add some seats though. One thing that I don't like about it. The open floor. If your stand...

Coleman Crawdad questions....

For now I will just put some padded fold down seats on it and wait till the winter to fool with the rest. I will try to find something at work to throw a rudder together.

Jim....Do you like the Basshunter style boat better? If so why? What were the likes and dislikes of the 2?

Thanks guys....

Need your opinion.

What do you guys say is the major differences in v bottom and flat bottom jons? I can find all kind of great deals on 14ft semi-v boats but all the flatbottoms seem overpriced. I have a little pelican bass raider 10 with a 30lb trollin motor on it but would like something a little bigger and more st...

I am looking for a cheap ultralite setup. I am thinking about the berkley cherryrod 5'6" UL and a cardinal reel. What is the difference in the cardinal 100u and the 101? Do any of you suggest this combo? Thanks in advance

Does anyone know what kind of boat this is?

I have a guy wanting to do some trading and this is what I will end up with. I was wanting to know what it is and if its worth messing with. Its a 14ft I know and he said he thought it was 4ft wide. No trailer but I have one that I can use. https://i295.photobucket.com/albums/mm155/chrmayo/v3.jpg ht...

replacing aluminum

After tuesday I am off work until the 3rd week of july so I am planning on tearing into it. While I am at it I am gonna paint it and either add some flat floors or deck it. I dont think I will be going all the way up to the top if I deck it. Any other info would be great. Thanks

replacing aluminum

Would it be best to use a rubber mallet? Should I take the small front bench out for easier access?

replacing aluminum

I started trying to pound them out. a weld at the bottom of each side started to crack. The small front deck is right in the way also. I thought about drilling the rivets out of it and pounding it and bolting it back in like others have talked about replacing rivets. I have a pic on my phone how do ...

I have an old duracraft 15ft. The front is made like a mod v its all riveted. The front has taken a beating from the previous owner duckhunting in ice. Everything else is good minus a few dents here and there. Is there any way that I can cut out the front section of the boat and replace it with new ...
