New Alweld 1752

Post by erictetterton »

Hello all,

I wanted to show you guys what I have been working on the past few weeks. I sold my Polarkraft 1751 riveted jon (hull only for $1050) and kept my motor and trailer and went to A K Mccallum and bought this 1752 VV LA on clearance for $2500. Its a leftover boat from 2010, new they are over $3400. She was barebones when i brought it home. I installed a wood false floor with foam underneath, red LEDs for night fishing, and rod holders.

is the camo on the motor a sticker? If so how has it held up?

yes that is a sticker kit (I'm guessing the one they sell on ebay). The guy i bought the motor from put it on there. I'd say its been on there 5 years or so. It's held up well

I too love walking through Ak's. I'm just looking to buy a new trailer for my Jon from there. Wife would like to get the money for a small pontoon.

Here's the LEDs at night. My camera phone sucks, but they are really bright and light up the boat well. I chose red so it wouldnt mess with my night vision. I do a lot of catfishing at night.

They come in a big roll and i cut them off every third LED and splice wires in. Here's what they look like before i cut them:

I also added a piece of 1" staboard to the transom to mount my transducer to. maybe one day i will be able to afford a HDS unit
