*****This section is for Full Boat Projects Only*****
So I just picked up a Alumacraft 1236 jon boat from a guy who had bought it from a dealer, used it twice and then decided he wanted a 10 foot. The boat is I almost perfect condition beside the transom which is a little scratched up. I will be adding carpeted plywood floors, carpeted bench seat with padded seat and swivels. I'm going to kep this updated whenever I add something.

Brand new trolling motor. Minkota C2 30 pound thrust transom mounted. I got a large Road Runner Resolute deep cycle marine battery to power everything. I also picked up a battery box to protect the battery.
One thing I decided I needed was a Live-well so I could start to see what I could get for limits. I got a Super Saver Live-well system. It's practically a bilge pump connected to a tube that recirculates water. A nice thing is you can hold the new pump over the side once your on the water and and empty and fill cooler without having to life a full cooler into the boat. It also doubles as a emergency bilge pump. I run the wires under the seat and back into the battery box. The tube the system came with was to long so I bought some clear tubing and cut it to the right length.
Bought a Cockpit Caddy, it has slots for pliers lures and a separate cup holder section. It comes with three auction cups that can be attached to the side or bottom. This will go by he driver. I also bought a suction cup cup holder for the passenger, it also has small slots for pliers, lures etc. these will be painted of green to match the boat.
Lookin' good! Those are nice little boats. I used to have one with a 15HP Johnson. I didn't do a lot of mods on it other than installing seats and a 55 lb Minn Kota bow mount trolling motor. Made a nice fishing boat.
2011 Lowe Roughneck 1655CC - 2008 Mercury 2 Stroke 90/65 (Converted from prop 90)
Made a box to set the boat on tip of I the truck bed. Raises the boat above the wheel wells. I carpeted the corners so it wouldn't scratch. Would love a trailer, be a lot easier. But have to go through registration..etc
I bought some Berkeley horizontal rod holders. They come with screws which I will use once the seats have plywood and carpet on them. For now I bought some industrial Velcro and attached them to the bench seats. This is awesome it keeps my rods out of the way and snug in place.
