Default 14 ft. Jon Boat project

Hi, I have been reading post for a while now, and decided to join group. I enjoy reading all the advice and joking around. Dukiller15 posted pictures of his Max 4 Cammo Bass Boat, and it as inspired me to show my little project. I started out with just a 14 ft. jon boat that was made in 1976. This is what it looked like when I started. Tell me what you think. I am working on finding a new project. Oh almost forgot that is a 9.9 Merc with a 55lbs. thrust trolling motor and hummingbird electronics.

Yes Bassintom, it is the shame color of the truck. I used the factory code for the color. Thanks everybody for the compliments. I don't know what it is but everytime I get it on the water I find something else I can improved or needs fixed. It is similar to the disease we all have aka bait monkey.

I look at it this way, as long as we share this experience with others then we can feel good about it and say that it has all been for a good cause.

The cost of the boat and trailer with 6 hp rude motor was $500.00 with the paint job, decking plus carpet and lighting, I would say about $600.00 there is alot of labor in a project like this, about 40 hrs worth.
