I picked up a used 16' jon boat back in the spring time. Here is the boat as we got it (with my happen son)and after a quick clean up and paint job to the exterior. Had to do a little fishing before I started a total rebuild. I will be posting the progress as it goes.

Looks great. If you haven't done so yet, you may consider setting up your bunks to catch the transom. Doesn't look like they would need to move far.

I took a day off work today and got some work done to the transom. Cut out the rotten stuff and fitted a new piece in. Need to clean the areas that are going to be welded and it will be ready to weld.

You know it's funny, before I started my own project I looked at these forums and I felt like everyone was slacking. Over a week period they would post tons of pictures and it never really looked like they got much done. Then I started my build, and simply cutting 6 2x4's to fit the bottom of the boat took a few hours. Really started to appreciate what most people on this forum can do. :mrgreen:

Trailer looks great! Can I send you mine?? [-o<

Lookin forward to seein you build this one!!

I haven't had much time to work on it. I have been working 50+ hours a week along with all the other things we do. Going to San Antonio tomorrow for a rc drag race.
