I dont currently have this boat, but this is a project I did back in 2009. wish I would have kept it but at the time I had about $4,000 in it and felt it was waaaaaaay too much.
Unlike the super set-ups on other custom jons, I tried to keep this relatively simple. The boat is a 2008 Lowe 1436L, the trailer is a 2009 continental, the motor is a 2007 Mercury 9.9 four stroke, and the trolling motor is a 40 lb thrust Minn Kota. Everything was bought 5 weeks before the finished pics were posted. Boat and trailer bought new, motor slightly used.
deck frame - 1/8 x 1-1/4 x 1-1/4 aluminum angle.
these two vertical legs were eventually welded (see front floor pic below)
frame screwed to rib
floor - 3/4 untreated plywood, added thompsons water seal
front floor, under deck storage. you can see where the deck legs were welded
on the port (left) side, is what I call my accessory rail. I really wanted to have the rod holder and the rods would not fit right unless the holder was mounted at a certain height, so I added the 2x4 . switch box has a fuse board in it. controls power to the fish finder, bilge pump and front and rear lights
trolling motor mount (screw overkill ? ) up until this mount I had a hard time making a sturdy mount so I just went all out.
all 4 rod holders in
on the water and almost ready to fish (just had to plug i rod holders)
