The video was awsome. Great looking rig, good job. Questine about your 12vdc spotlight, is the cord long enough to reach the back seat? After relocating my batt up front, I was faced with the fact that the cord was to short to reach the back seat. It was several hours past dark before I clued in th...

Same bases I used in my boat. I have the front on 3/4s and that is fine. On the rear deck I used 15/16ths ply. So what I did was place a second square of 3/4s just a bit larger then the foot print on the base and attach it under the deck and then screwed the base into both the 15/16th and on through...

Looks nice. Does that Briggs push it pretty good? Same as any 5HP would which is not fast by any means but no problems. I can't say enough good things about the motor, runs like a champ, starts on one pull and can go for damn near ever on 3 gallons of gas. Even after 1.5 years of storage it started...

All I can say is I decked mine and it is much nicer now. I kept the mid decks really low. Have a look at my post on my 14 foot jon to get some ideas. Decks don't always have to be high to be functional.

Really like what you are doing. What type of fishing do you do and where are you at (geographically speaking)

On my boat with the amount of wood and the way I distributed it I have no problems. That said I don't consider it a three man boat any more. I took out three in it a few times before the mods and had no issues. My total weight add is just under 100 pounds so two people is now like three and one pers...

Hey thanks I really have meant to update the page for a long time with new pics and all. If the weather is good in Dallas on Saturday I am taking it out to chase some sand bass which are starting to really pick up about now.
